Skid Row Cancels Tour Due To ‘Utmost Concern’ For Erik Gronwall

Skid Row announced through their Instagram that their October 2023 tour dates with Buckcherry were postponed due to the ongoing health issues of Erik Gronwall.

The band’s statement said:

“Due to utmost concern for the health and well-being of one of our own, Skid Row’s lead vocalist, Erik Gronwall, the band has made the decision to move the third leg of their highly anticipated US and Canada tour originally scheduled for October 2023 to March 2024.”

Gronwall, who became part of the band in 2022, survived cancer after being diagnosed with a type called acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and the tour delay is connected to the treatment he underwent two years ago. The singer also shared a message, stating:

“I want to apologize to all the fans, promoters, Buckcherry and the Skid Row team, and to my bandmates. Due to the stem cell transplantation I did on August 12, 2021, my immune system is still partially impaired, which can result in longer time before clearance of infections and also impaired fitness during infections. It will get better with time, and all I can do until then is roll with the punches and ensure I have a better balance in terms of touring.”

Back in May, Skid Row revealed another cancellation, affecting their Brisbane show, due to health concerns involving Gronwall’s voice, and they also extended their apologies to fans for any inconvenience caused. The band’s September shows will proceed as scheduled.
