Las Vegas Concert Photography: Warrant and Skid Row Take Over Fremont Street

Do you remember the 80's metal hair bands Skid Row and Warrant?  Believe it or not, both of these groups are still around and rocking out.  Both bands still have most of the original members, but both also have a new lead singer; Skid Row ousted front-man Sebastian Bach, replacing him with Johnny Solinger, while Warrant chose Robert Mason after the untimely demise of Jani Lane in 2011.  


For someone listened to these two bands while growing up, it's hard to picture anyone other than Sebastian Bach and Jani Lane belting out the lyrics, but both Solinger and Mason have both stepped up and helped drive their respective bands in a new direction.  As a matter of fact, if you never saw these bands perform with their original lead singer, or maybe only heard them a few times on the radio, you'd probably think that Solinger and Mason have always been the front-men.   


Recently, both bands took the 1st Street Stage on Fremont Street for the Rock of Vegas summer concert series.  Both bands revisited their hits from the late 80's that made them famous--Warrant ending their set with" Cherry Pie", and Skid Row closing out with "Youth Gone Wild."   Needless to say, the show rocked.  It was loud.  It was hard rock music.  And the crowd loved it!
