Grammy Award-winning MEGADETH bassist, author, entrepreneur and metal icon David Ellefson, in association with Hexagon Booking, has announced a string of European dates to his "Basstory" tour, a series of limited and exclusive "Storytellers" dates, starting September 21 in Portland, Oregon.
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.
"Basstory" will also include special VIP meet-and-greets, exclusive merchandise, and more.
Says Ellefson: "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."
