IN reading up on the forthcoming Ugly Kid Joe and Skid Row gig on 29th October one couldn't but notice that vocalist Johnny Salinger has been with the band for 14 years - almost four years longer than Sebastian Bach.
And with Bach having made few friends if any in Northern Ireland there is a temptation to saying that this will be the 'real' Skid Row.
The joint headlining show in the Limelight1 will see Skid Row play 'classic' tracks we as well as débuting material from new album United World Rebellion - Chapter One.
It'll be a similar deal with Ugly Kid Joe - classic tracks like Cat's the Cradle, Everything About You plus newer material.
Which, all in all seems a good deal for those ready to see a combo of such 80s pedigree still going striong!
Tickets, priced at £21 are on sale now. No Bach included...thankfully
