Schenectady, NY (April 28, 2023) – Rock fans will be pumping their fists, singing along, and breaking out the air guitars when Great White and Slaughter hit the Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady Event center stage on Friday, October 27, 2023. Both bands will be bringing the hits for an unforgettable night of hard rock classics.

Great White, the band behind arena hits “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” “Rock Me,” “Save Your Love,” and "The Angel Song", has grittily blended blues and rock since they first burst onto the scene in the early 80’s. Great White has sold over 10-million albums worldwide, has six Top 100 Billboard hits, nine Top 200 Billboard albums, two platinum albums, and clocked the top of MTV four times. From an early gig at the famed Los Angeles’ Troubadour, to sharing arena stages with rock’s biggest names like Judas Priest, Whitesnake, Scorpions, to globetrotting alongside contemporaries Slaughter, Vixen, Skid Row, Vince Neil and more – Great White continues to bring its exhilarating live performance to the masses.
Slaughter first struck gold in 1990 when their debut album, Stick It to Ya, went double-platinum and included Billboard Magazine’s Hot 100 hits “Up All Night,” “Fly to the Angels,” and "Spend My Life". The band followed up their hit debut with Stick it Live, a five song EP showcasing their live prowess, that quickly went gold. Slaughter then released their second studio record, The Wild Life, which entered the Billboard charts the first week of release in the top ten at #8 and was shortly certified platinum. Rocking fans for over 30-years, Slaughter continues to tour, performing 40 to 50 shows a year at casinos, fairs, and festivals throughout the world, including shows in Sweden, Japan, Mexico, and Germany.
