Four Hair Metal Bands Rumored to be Planning Major Summer Tour
I just spoke with a couple of industry folks about a big concert tour being planned for the summer of 2020. At this time nothing is confirmed, but I'm told promoters have been contacted and a tour is being routed as we speak.
The package doesn't have a name, but unofficially the roster would look like this:
- Cinderella lead singer Tom Keifer
- Skid Row
The "Skids" and Slaughter round out the bill and I would imagine certain cities would opt for a local opener to kick everything off. Here in Cedar Rapids a band like Skin Kandy or Slap 'N' Tickle would fit perfectly with the other bands on the bill.
I guess we will have to wait and see when this becomes official and what cities will be included. I'm really hoping Eastern Iowa lands a concert date and I would be the first person in line for tickets!
If you ask me, Hawkeye Downs on the SW side of Cedar Rapids would be a great spot to host this tour. A big stage, plenty of parking, a nice grandstand and ice cold beer.
Let's hope a promoter reads this blog and gives us a shot here in "The City of Five Seasons."
Until then, keep your fingers crossed!
