Welcome to our preview of all things HRH AOR – all this week we’ll be shining the spotlight on some of the hottest bands and coolest acts headed to North Wales.
And first up it’s Saturday night headliners Skid Row!
Who: Skid Row
When: March 10, 2018, 10.30pm-midnight
Where: Main Stage
What: April 2013. Magna, Rotherham. Skid Row headline the first ever HRH AOR Festival in very different surroundings. Fast forward five years and the New Jersey glam rockers are back again.
A couple of lead singers have come and gone since their debut at HRH but the soul of the band is well and truly still alive in the trio of Dave Sabo, Rachel Bolan and Scotti Hill.
Current lead vocalist ZP Theart has a stellar background and after touring with the band in 2016, the South African earned his permanent place through impressive live performances.
From their first, self-titled, album back in 1989, Skid Row are widely regarded as the definitive bridge from the pomp of the 80s to the grunge of the 90s.
Classic Track: Youth Gone Wild (1989)
