Four popular metal acts from the ’80s and ’90s — Ratt, Cinderella‘s Tom Keifer, Skid Row and Slaughter — are teaming up this year for a big rock summer tour called, you guessed it, The Big Rock Summer Tour.
The U.S. trek, which currently includes 19 concerts, kicks off June 3 in Farmingville, New York, and is mapped out through a September 19 show in Los Angeles. Quiet Riot will come onboard for two of the tour dates, replacing Keifer on the lineup on September 5 in Grand Island, Nebraska, and September 6 in Denver. Slaughter won’t be on the bill for the September 5 performance.
Tickets go on sale starting this Friday, March 13, at 10 a.m. local time. Visit BigRockSummerTour.com for full details.
“We’re looking forward to layin’ it down on The Big Rock Summer Tour,” Ratt frontman Stephen Pearcy says. “The band is firing on all cylinders and more than ready for the shows with some great bands. Let the games begin!”
Adds Keifer, “We are celebrating 30 years of kick a** rock with Ratt, Skid Row and Slaughter this summer, and promise to bring a 100% live, loud, leave it all on the stage, #keiferband style rock show in every city [the trek] comes to!
Meanwhile, founding Skid Row guitarist Rachel Bolan declares, “This is more than an incredible summer tour with four killer bands and three decades of hits. It’s a traveling rock and roll circus with friends we’ve known for more than 30 years! And we are ready to tear s*** up!”
Slaughter adds in a joint statement, “We’re looking forward to lighting up the stage with all the bands and you rock and roll maniacs! Get loud! Get crazy!”
