ABOUT SKID ROW:

The first rebellion started in 1986. New Jersey kids, punk and metal attitude, determined to conquer the world. All for one, banded together with single-minded purpose. The battlefield was the stage, the songs their arsenal in an us-against-them musical coup d’état. Top Ten singles with “ I Remember You: and “18 and Life” Gold and multi-platinum sales. Their second Album “Slave to the Grind” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The world was theirs, the rebellion won and toured extensively until 1996.

Skid Row returned to the big stage — literally — opening for Kiss in 2000. Exhilarated to tour with the heroes who rallied them in the first place, the band was reinvigorated by being underdogs who needed to come out fighting to prove themselves. “When we put the band back together, we needed to reintroduce Skid Row as relevant without relying too much on past success,” explains bassist Rachel Bolan. “We wrote songs and hit the road. We sunk our heart and soul into it, letting people know we weren’t doing it for lack of anything better to do.” Their rebellion continues. United World Rebellion starts now.

ABOUT WARRANT:

At its core, WARRANT is an American rock band through and through. Hitting it big in 1989, the Hollywood, CA based band rose through the ranks of the local Sunset Strip scene to the level of multiplatinum selling, chart-topping success. The band first came into the national spotlight with their debut album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich. This album produced Radio and MTV chart toppers “Down Boys,” “Sometimes She Cries,” and the massive hit “Heaven” which reached #1 in Rolling Stone and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks in a row. The single “Heaven” enjoyed Gold sales and the Album went Platinum in Canada as well, eventually selling over 3 million copies. The band toured the globe performing 262 shows in support of DRFSR and closed the year with a Platinum Home Video.

WARRANT’s sophomore album Cherry Pie was released in September 1990. This album, which spawned the MTV & Radio hits “Cherry Pie,” “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” and “I Saw Red,” all reached the Top 10 in the United States and went on to sell 3 million copies, reaching Platinum sales in Canada and Australia. The band played 200 shows in support of Cherry Pie and finished the tour headlining sheds all over the USA and ended up being one of the top grossing tours of 1991. Over the course of their career, WARRANT has sold over 10 million albums worldwide. The song “Cherry Pie” has taken on a pop culture life of its own, being featured in countless movies, TV shows, commercials and the hugely popular video game Guitar Hero II.

WARRANT has been headlining festivals, casinos and fairs all over the country in support of their latest CD Louder Harder Faster and the 30 year anniversary of their debut album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich. The band is fired up and tighter than every musically! These rockers can’t wait to play not only ALL the hits fans know & love, but also new tunes/videos like “Louder Harder Faster” & “I Think I Will Just Stay Here & Drink.”

ABOUT QUIET RIOT

QUIET RIOT has widely been credited with breaking down the doors to heavy metal music and kicking off the sunset strip hair metal craze of the 1980’s. The band is excited to welcome legendary bass player RUDY SARZO back into the band after a nearly 18 year absence. Rudy is thrilled to be back home in QUIET RIOT and to honor his friends the late Frankie Banali and Kevin DuBrow (as per Frankie’s wishes) and is looking forward to touring and recording into 2022 and beyond.

The story of QUIET RIOT begins in 1980 when Kevin DuBrow formed a new band under his own name, working with Frankie Banali and a variety of musicians over the next few years before signing with Pasha/CBS Records, recycling the QUIET RIOT moniker, and recording the album “Metal Health” at a time when new wave was king and no other record company would consider a heavy metal band. The album “Metal Health” was released in 1983 and jumped over Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” to become the first heavy metal album to reach number one on the Billboard charts. The band became MTV darlings on rotation every half hour. The single “Cum on Feel The Noize” peaked at number five and “Metal Health” (Bang Your Head) became a monster hit. The album surpassed ten million in worldwide sales before the record company stopped counting. Their follow up album “Condition Critical” also went multi-platinum and spawned the hits “Mama Weer All Crazy Now” and “Party All Night”.

In 2007 singer Kevin DuBrow passed away. After careful consideration and with the blessing of the DuBrow estate, Banali reformed the band in 2010. The emotional journey was chronicled in the documentary “QUIET RIOT: Well Now You’re Here, There’s No Way Back” that aired on Showtime for two years starting Jan 29th 2015.

In 2019 Frankie Banali was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He selected Johnny Kelly from Type O Negative to fill in for him. Since Frankie’s passing Johnny has continued on in his place. QUIET RIOT 2022 consists of Sarzo, Kelly, vocalist Jizzy Pearl from Love/Hate and Adler’s Appetite, guitarist Alex Grossi who’s been in the band since 2004.
