Say what you will about Skid Row, but Slave To The Grind is one of the heaviest albums to hit number one on the Billboard album chart. They were also never afraid of taking out the some the best opening bands. The top ticket was for a show at the Five Flags Center in Dubuque, Iowa with Pantera as the opening band, soon after the release of Vulgar Display Of Power. Pantera completely ripped the place up with a short 30 minute set of material primarily from Cowboys From Hell, including "Heresy", "Domination", and "Psycho Holiday". The band expresses much gratitude to Skid Row for having the balls to take them on tour. Skid Row was amazing that night, too, playing all the songs from their first two albums that you'd expect. Sebastian Bach is so incredibly underrated as a singer. I didn't make it to the earlier part of the Slave To The Grind tour with Soundgarden opening, unfortunately. The flyer is for the show at Palmer Auditorium in Davenport, Iowa. The only other time I've seen Skid Row was on the Subhuman Race tour at Memorial Hall in Kansas City with Souls At Zero. Not as good a show as the first time I saw them, but excellent nonetheless.
