Official press release:
Grammy Award Winning Megadeth bassist, author, entrepreneur, and metal icon David Ellefson has announced more dates for his Basstory Tour, a series of limited and exclusive “Storytellers” dates, starting 9/20 in Portland.
Dubbed Basstory: An Intimate Evening of Riffs and Repartee With David Ellefson, the show combines solo bass performance with David’s celebrated brand of storytelling, as he recounts intimate details of his struggles and triumphs in the name of Rock N’ Roll.
4 new dates have been added with support from Combat Records artists Green Death, and Chicago classic thrashers Wrath.
Basstory will also include special VIP meet and greets, exclusive merchandise, and more.
“I have always done clinics, and a few years ago did an amazing spoken word tour in Australia to support my book My Life With ‘Deth, and have always welcomed the opportunity to be able to meet and connect with fans on a more intimate level. These important parts of my professional life converged to create Basstory. Not only will fans get to hear some of their favorite bass riffs, but the stories behind them. It’s not often I get to get into small, intimate rock clubs, the way this all started, and I’m excited for fans to get to experience this show.”
Tickets and limited VIPs are available for purchase at DavidEllefsonBasstory.com.
Basstory is also the launching pad for Ellefson, and partner Thom Hazaert, to announce the formation of their new booking agency, ETA – Ellefson Touring Agency, with veteran agent Keith Rowley personally booking the trek.
