“Ladies and gents,” Grönwall said on social media. “I hereby declare the circle of all fucking circles complete. You’re looking at the new singer of @officialskidrow #skidrow #erikgronwall.”

Grönwall released a version of 18 And Life last year on YouTube. “This song was basically the starting point of my professional career as an artist,” he said. “I performed this song during my Swedish Idol audition back in 2009. Twelve years later, it’s time to give this bad boy a try again. Here’s my version of the Skid Row song 18 and life.”

Skid Row are due to play on the Scorpions Sin City Nights Las Vegas residency commencing this weekend.
