MEGADETH BASSIST DAVID ELLEFSON ANNOUNCES EUROPEAN DATES FOR HIS BASSTORY TOUR
Written by Mike Bertoli on August 7, 2018
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 9/21 in Portland, OR, USA.
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.”
