The Deal

  • $13 for one general-admission ticket (up to $26.10 value)

Skid Row

  • Singles from Skid Row’s self-titled album that rocketed up the charts: “I Remember You,” “18 and Life,” “Youth Gone Wild”
  • What would happen if everyone who bought that album got together: They’d just about fill Singapore (pop. 5.3 million), then have to annex another island to house their hairdressers.
  • Title they earned at the 1990 American Music Awards: Favorite Heavy Metal/Hard Rock New Artist
  • Where 1991’s Slave to the Grind landed on the Billboard charts: No. 1
  • Slave to the Grind’s biggest hits: “Wasted Time,” “Monkey Business”
  • The axemen: original members Rachel Bolan (bass) and Dave “The Snake” Sabo and Scotti Hill (guitars)
  • The lead singer: Johnny Solinger, replacing singer Sebastian Bach, who was presumably tired after 250 years of writing music

Great White

  • When the hard-rock layman first laid ears on Great White: in 1989 with the smash-hit cover of Ian Hunter’s “Once Bitten, Twice Shy”
  • What gripped listeners: the pull-no-punches riff, the earworm chorus of “my, my, my”
  • What veteran hard-rock fans already knew: Great White had been playing their own gritty version of blues rock and making their own chum since the late ’70s
  • What to expect from the show: decades of hits and new barnstorming rockers, played with panache by original members Mark Kendall, Michael Lardie, and Audie Desbrow, alongside new singer Terry Ilous
