Produced by Live Nation, The Big Rock Summer Tour features legendary rock acts Ratt, Cinderella’s Tom Keifer, Skid Row and Slaughter, four bands that have combined to sell more than 60 million albums, including dozens of radio hits and smash videos. Every night of the tour will feature more party anthems and power ballads than fans could hope for, with the rock n roll caravan hitting more than two dozen North American cities starting June 3rd in Farmingville, NY and wrapping September 19th in Los Angeles, CA (see dates below).

Tickets for all shows go on sale beginning March 13th at 10am local time. Visit bigrocksummertour.com[bigrocksummertour.com] for tickets and complete details. 

“We’re looking forward to layin’ it down on The Big Rock Summer Tour. The band is firing on all cylinders and more than ready for the shows with some great bands. Let the games begin,” says Stephen Pearcy of Ratt.

“We are celebrating 30 years of kick ass rock with Ratt, Skid Row and Slaughter this summer, and promise to bring a 100% live, loud, leave it all on the stage, #keiferband style rock show in every city The Big Rock Summer Tour comes to! See y’all at the show.” adds Cinderella’s Tom Keifer.

“This is more than an incredible summer tour with four killer bands and three decades of hits. It’s a traveling rock and roll circus with friends we’ve known for more than 30 years. And we are ready to tear s–t up,” says Rachel Bolan of Skid Row.

Finally, Slaughter goes on to say, “Unleash three decades of killer music and let the soundtrack of the summertime begin. We’re looking forward to lighting up the stage with all the bands and you rock and roll maniacs. Get loud. Get crazy. And get ready for The Big Rock Summer Tour. It’s gonna be one wild ride.”

    Bands with singers way past their prime tour! 🙂

    2/5 Ratt + 1/4 Cinderella + 3/5 Skid Row = Zero interest on my part.

    I hate how these, and many other, great classic rock bands limp around today using the same classic brandings of yesteryear….

    I was never a huge fan of the ” hair metal” glammy bands – some of the songs were alright I guess , I’m a led zeppelin ,black sabbath ,priest , UFO, purple and 70’s Kiss guy – so I naturally liked the bands that came after and played in that style- I agree with rattleheads and doug’s comments – although tom from cinderella still sings pretty well – I just wont go see bands if the singer has lost his voice and cant’ sound reasonably good anymore , it just ruins it for me- i’m paying money for more than nostalgic memories I want to see a great band with awesome live vocals – but I honestly believe the coronavirus outbreak is going to cause many shows to be canceled it’s already happening not only in rock but sports as well and will continue until our country figures out how bad this virus really is- I personally am not in a panic, but I am taking precautions -from what I have been reading 50 and up and elderly people are really at risk , mild symptoms generally unless it becomes an upper respiratory infection then it’s very very bad – stay safe
