Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale to sing live with Skid Row following Erik Grönwall’s departure

Lzzy Hale is temporarily joining Skid Row as their live

The Halestorm hero is taking the spot of departing frontman Erik
Grönwall, who joined in 2022 but is sadly leaving due to the need to focus on his health.

In a statement announcing his departure, Erik explains, “I got
the opportunity to join this incredible band six months after my treatment
against leukaemia. And one month after that I was on a world tour with Skid
f**** Row. Wow! It was a dream come true.

“However, it proved challenging touring the world with an
impaired immune system, which is a result of my bone marrow transplant. I
respect and understand that Skid Row is a touring band but since I can’t
prioritise my health being in the band, I have decided that it’s better for me
to step aside.

“I love Skid Row, I have nothing but respect for the guys in the
band but I love and respect my health more. I’m getting stronger and healthier
every day but after consulting my doctor I need to allow myself more time to
recover, which I can’t do as the lead singer of Skid Row. That’s why I have
reached the tough decision to move on. I want to thank the guys for this
incredible opportunity. And I want to thank all the Skid Row fans who accepted
me as the lead singer of this iconic band. Health first!”

Lzzy will be taking Erik’s spot for some live dates in May and
June, enthusing: “I’m stepping in for a few dates as the lead
singer in Skid Row! What an honour to call them my friends and a privilege to
be sharing the stage with them! Erik, I wish you all the magic on your next
adventure. Now… which leather pants to wear?!!”
