Ratt, Skid Row, Slaughter, Tom Keifer announce summer tour

The four bands will celebrate 30 years of hits

Four of hair metal’s finest have announced the Big Rock Summer Tour 2020. Ratt, Skid Row, Slaughter and Cinderella’s Tom Keifer will visit more than two dozen cities throughout North America. Every night of the tour will feature more party anthems and power ballads than fans could hope for.

The trek kicks off June 3rd in Framingville, NY and wraps in Los Angeles on September 19th. Quiet Riot will fill in for Slaughter and Keifer at a September 5th stop at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island, NE. They will also perform the next night in place of Keifer in Denver.

“We’re looking forward to layin’ it down on the Big Rock Summer Tour,” Ratt frontman Stephen Pearcy shares in a news release. “The band is firing on all cylinders and more than ready for the shows with some great bands. Let the games begin!”

Keifer shares as much enthusiasm. “We are celebrating 30 years of kick-ass rock with Ratt, Skid Row and Slaughter this summer, and promise to bring a 100 percent live, loud, leave it all on the stage, #keiferband-style rock show in every city the Big Rock Summer Tour comes to! See y’all at the show!”
