Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach has returned to the stage for a tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of the band’s double-platinum, acclaimed album “Slave To The Grind”. The trek kicked off on September 25 in Waterloo, New York and will wrap in San Diego, California on December 17.
Fan-filmed video footage of Bach‘s October 23 performance at the Theatre Of The Living Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania can be seen below.
Earlier this month, Sebastian was asked in a new interview with Rockin’ Metal Revival if he ever regrets writing such high vocal parts that he now has to reproduce live on stage three decades later. He responded: “All I can tell you is that I’ve been singing so much in the last four or months. I can’t tell you exactly what I was doing yet, but I will be able to. My voice is the same it’s always been.
“I’ve gotta say just a couple of things answering your question — a couple of things come to mind,” he continued. “For a guy like me or a guy like Bono [U2] or a guy like — I don’t know, Geddy Lee [RUSH] or somebody like that, making a record is not the same as doing a show; it’s not the same thing; it’s a different thing. Making a record is you standing in an air-conditioned room with water next to you and coffee and you’ve got the lights perfect. And you’re standing as still as you can, and you get to sing it as many times as you want until it’s perfect. [Laughs] Nothing can be more different than a show — unless you’re using [backing] tapes. But I’m proud to tell your audience that we will not be using any tapes anytime soon, so it’s a real rock show. But doing a show is more like communicating the spirit of the song and the music to the audience, and everybody gets into it. And I’m not just gonna stand there and try to be perfect. I’m gonna run all over the place and I’m gonna put on a show.
