This Friday the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino will feature a double dose of ‘80s glam metal. Kix will serve as the lineup’s opener. Its release “Blow My Fuse” spawned two stellar hits that included the ballsy “Cold Blood” and the quintessential ‘80s power ballad “Don’t Close Your Eyes.”

Headliner Skid Row will provide the climax to this ‘80s metal flashback. This New Jersey band brought a little darkness to the world of glam metal through the release of its 1989 self-titled debut. Rockers fell in love with songs such as “Youth Gone Wild” and “18 and Life.” Skid Row’s current lineup features original members Rachel Bolan, Dave “The Snake” Sabo and Scotti Hill. New additions include drummer Rob Hammersmith and vocalist ZP Theart of DragonForce fame.
