It may be somewhat of a rebellion, but that's what rock and roll is supposed to be.

During a brief hiatus in the late 90's, fans worried that Skid Row was gone for good - but not so. You can't keep a good band down, and they've been proving ever since that they're not going anywhere. Fortunately for us, the youth gone wild guys still haven't lost their edge in almost three decades!

Currently rocking out Japan, Australia, and New Zealand, the boys will be back home soon where they'll first head out with Black Star Riders for a few dates, then will bust out on their own headlining tour running through the end of July.

But that's hardly the end of the "summer of Skid Row" - - - after this leg of the tour wraps up, the guys will be headed to Kostrzyn, Poland to headline one of the biggest festivals in Europe, the Woodstock Festival Poland on July 31.

And then the highly anticipated new EP, United World Rebellion - Part 2, is scheduled to hit the streets on August 5. The band members themselves are as excited about this release as the fans are, and with the maturity of song writing combined with the raw fuel of their roots, United World Rebellion - Part 2 won't disappoint.

Tireless touring, new music, and on-stage butt-kicking...what more could a metal fan ask for?

And Chicago area Skid-fans are in for a triple treat this time around - the band will take down Home Bar in Arlington Heights on July 12, the Watseka Theater in Watseka on July 13, and the Illinois State Fair in Peoria on July 17. Be sure to hit one of these shows...or all three!
