Happy Saturday to you all! I have some MAJOR concert news for Sault Michigan, so here we go!

Skid Row are coming back to The Dreammaker's Theater at Kewadin Casino on March 5th, with special guests Firehouse! Tickets will be just $33.50! Sounds like a good night of hair metal mayhem, even without Sebastian Bach in the band anymore. I'm sure you'll remember Skid Row for classics like "Youth Gone Wild" and "I Remember You", and maybe you remember Firehouse for songs like "Love of a Lifetime" and "When I Look Into Your Eyes"! SooToday also posted an event page for this concert, which you can check out at this location!

Skid Row previously came to Kewadin Casino on June 17, 2006! Here's live video of the band performing "18 and Life" at that show! (All credit to YouTube user OldSkoolSoldier for the vid)

Coincidentally, both Skid Row and Firehouse both had to drop off local concerts this year, so it's kinda ironic that they're together for this show in March! Skid Row were to headline a major concert at Runway Park on June 28th with L.A. Guns, but that got cancelled days before showtime. Also. Firehouse had to drop out of a show with Poison frontman Bret Michaels at Kewadin Casino on March 15th, due to frontman C.J. Snare's wife going into labour (locals Nixxon Dixxon replaced them that night!)

While we're on the subject of major 1980s hard rock bands, there's more coming to Kewadin! On January 10th, Great White will be performing at The Dreammaker's Theater as well! Best known for their hit song "Once Bitten, Twice Shy", they will be supported by fellow 80s glam metal stars Britny Fox! Tickets for this show will also be $33.50, and both this concert and Skid Row start at 7:00! (To the best of my knowledge, this is the first Sault area show for both Great White and Britny Fox).

Did you think we were done with Sault Michigan concerts? Well, here's a bunch more! Bad Side, a Michigan based classic hard rock band that you might remember from this year's Bell Border Jam, are returning for ten dates throughout 2009 at The Rapids Lounge at Kewadin Casino! So, keep an eye out for Bad Side on February 13-14, April 10-11, September 4-5, October 2-3, and December 11-12!

OK, that should be all for Sault Michigan concerts for a while! Hopefully we'll get some news from the Sault Ontario side of things in the next while! It's nice to see so many shows across the river, but there's gotta be some more for us up here!
