Sebastian Bach has uploaded video footage of his October 1, 2019 concert at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, Georgia. The show was part of Bach's fall 2019 tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of SKID ROW's self-titled debut album.
Says Sebastian: "I really miss seeing y'all like crazy! I am sharing this footage with you because I know you are all bored & stir crazy sitting around your house and I know you miss going out to shows as much as we miss playin' 'em! I have all this footage so why not post it for you all instead of endless cell phone videos! I will upload as much as I can for everyone during this crappy time! Turn it up and rock on! Hope to see you this October 2020 for the fingers crossed tour!!!"
During the trek, Sebastian usually opened his 15-song set with "Tornado" — the LP's final track — and "Forever" before the singer performed the rest of "Skid Row" in order. As an encore, Sebastian played two songs from SKID ROW's 1991 album "Slave To The Grind": the title track and "Monkey Business".
Last June, Bach issued an "open invitation" to the other members of SKID ROW's classic lineup to "get onstage and jam" during the vocalist's recent tour. A few days later, during an interview with Finland's Kaaos TV, guitarist Dave "Snake" Sabo confirmed that he would not accept Bach's latest overture. "I'm working with my band," he said. "This is SKID ROW, and this is what I do."
Drummer Rob Affuso — who left SKID ROW in 1998 and claims to be "the only former member that keeps in contact with all former SKID ROW bandmates and is still good friends with them all" — subsequently joined Bach on September 25 at Sony Hall in New York City to play the band's classic song "Makin' A Mess".
Asked by Rolling Stone if he thinks his former bandmates are offended that he put his invitation out there publicly, Bach said: "No. I think it's an ego thing. They don't like when I get attention, and they don't get attention. It's always been like that. I can already see them getting mad, because I'm selling out shows, and they're not part of the show, and blah, blah, blah."
