The American band Skid Row toured extensively in 2023 with their new singer Erik Grönwall promoting their latest album “The Gang’s All Here”, their first one since 2006. However, the group was forced to reschedule their next tour dates to give time for Grönwall to recover. The musician explained that he made a stem cell transplantation in 2021 and that his immune system is partially impaired at the time.
The shows alongside Buckcherry and Sierra Pilot were postponed to March, 2024.
“Skid Row announce a necessary adjustment to their upcoming tour schedule for October. Due to utmost concern for the health and well-being of one of our own, Skid Row’s lead vocalist, Erik Grönwall, the band has made the decision to move the third leg of their highly anticipated US and Canada tour originally scheduled for October 2023 to March 2024.”
“‘I want to apologize to all the fans, promoters, Buckcherry and the Skid Row team and to my band mates. Due to the stem cell transplantation I did on August 12, 2021 my immune system is still partially impaired, which can result in longer time before clearance of infections and also impaired fitness during infections. It will get better with time and all I can do until then is roll with the punches and ensure I have a better balance in terms of touring,’” Erik Grönwall said.
“The new tour dates will now take place in March 2024, the 4th leg of The Gang’s All Here Tour in December with Buckcherry is still scheduled as planned. See below for full North America upcoming and rescheduled concerts. Both Skid Row and Buckcherry deeply value the support of their fans, promoters and everyone involved in the shows, and understand that this change may inconvenience some people. To those who have purchased tickets, we kindly ask for your patience as all tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Refunds will be available for those who cannot attend the rescheduled shows. Thanks for your understanding and continued loyalty. You are truly the best!” the band said.
