SEBASTIAN BACH ANNOUNCES U.S. SPRING TOUR WITH AN INTIMATE TWIST, “18 AND LIFE ON SKID ROW” MEMOIR GETS A NEW RELEASE DATE
In anticipation of his upcoming book, 18 and Life on Skid Row,” iconic rocker Sebastian Bach will embark on a US Spring Tour that will incorporate an intimate acoustic set followed by a full electric live show.
“‘An Evening with Sebastian Bach.’ No, that doesn’t mean we’re going to end up in the back of a police car. It means that for selected shows on the upcoming tour, we want to do something brand-new. Let’s bring the music back to its purest form. We have been touring a lot in the last few years so it’s time to do something different. You’re going to get two sets for the price of one. We’re going to open up the show with some stripped-down tunes, re-set the stage, and then come back with the Big Guns,” says Bach. The tour begins on April 27th in Jacksonville, FL and wraps up in Salt Lake City on June 3rd. Tickets go on sale Friday March 4th, at 10AM local time. VIP package upgrade will be available at sebastianbachlive.com.
His upcoming memoir 18 and Life on Skid Row will be released on June 28th through Dey Street books.
“Pushing the book gives us the opportunity to really finish it properly. The publishers asked me for 30 pictures. I gave them 150. There are easy ways to do memoirs, simple ways to do biographies. What separates these books is the archival content. 18 and Life on Skid Row could also be called the Skid Row Archives. I am giving you my personal collection, photos, & documents none of you have ever seen. A lot of them. I look forward to the book release and the book tour following the book release. If I am going to go on a tour of book stores, I have to really be into the book. June 28th release date gives us an extra month to pay attention to detail. In a project of this scope there are many details.”
In his memoir, Bach recounts lurid tales of excess and debauchery as he toured the world with Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Mötley Crüe, Soundgarden, Pantera, Nine Inch Nails and Guns N’ Roses. Filled with never before seen photos from his own personal collection, 18 and Life on Skid Row is the story of hitting it big at a young age, and of creatively reeling from a band that broke up in its prime.
From a man who achieved his wildest dreams, only to lose his family, and then his home, this is a tale of perseverance, of wine, women and song, and of a man who has made his life on the road. 18 and Life on Skid Row is not your ordinary rock memoir, because Sebastian Bach is not your ordinary rock star.
