Sebastian Bach Announces 30th Anniversary Tour of Skid Row’s Debut Album

0

Yet another album anniversary tour? Why the hell not! Everyone else is doing it.

Former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach has succumbed to the trend of playing classic albums in full on tour by giving fans what they most want to hear… sort of: Skid Row’s 1989 debut album performed from start to finish each night. What fans really want, of course, is Bach to get back together with the original Skid Row lineup to do the same, but that seems increasingly unlikely so this will just have to do. Perhaps sensing that this moment is the one to seize, Bach has booked himself a loooong ass tour, nine weeks total, that goes damn near everywhere in the U.S. (sorry, Montana — still shit out of luck!)

Sez Bach:

“30 years later, people still dig the music we created in a garage all those years ago. In commemoration of this 30th Anniversary digital deluxe release, my band is going to perform the first Skid Row record, in its entirety, on the road, LIVE this fall! It’s going to be fun to do something that has never been done live before! We are looking forward to seeing you all for this one time event!”
