Sebastian Bach To Perform Skid Row Debut Album On Tour
Canadian rocker Sebastian Bach will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Skid Row’s debut album by performing it in its entirety on tour later this year.
The band’s self-titled album spawned four hit singles – “Youth Gone Wild," "18 and Life," "Piece Of Me" and "I Remember You."
In a message shared on Facebook, Bach wrote: “Thirty years later, people still dig the music we created in a garage all those years ago.”
The singer noted that neither he nor Skid Row have ever performed the full album in concert so it will be a unique live experience.
Bach has made every indication over the past several years that his preference was to reunite with Skid Row for the 30th anniversary tour, but his former band mates have repeatedly declined the opportunity to work with him — including in 2017 when the band was looking for a new lead singer.
Bach's split from Skid Row in 1996 was acrimonious, but he's expressed a willingness to put that all behind him. Guitarist Dave Sabo told Eddie Trunk in '17 that the band briefly considered the idea before realizing that “whatever it was that tore us apart years ago still existed.”
With the 30th anniversary of Skid Row in mind, Bach reached out to all the current members of the band last summer, asking if there was anyway they could celebrate the milestone together. He didn't get a single response, he said.
“I don't know what to do," Bach said. "It's very sad. I understand how the fans feel. I get it. I'm a fan too.”
The tour runs Aug. 29 to Nov. 2 and, so far at least, doesn’t include any Canadian dates.
