SEBASTIAN BACH: 'My New Band Plays Better' Than Original SKID ROW

Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach has issued the following update:

"I am extremely happy to report that last night in Sao Paulo was absolutely one of the biggest, most important shows of my whole 25-year career so far. We played to approximately 60,000 people last night in Sao Paulo with GUNS N' ROSES. I have played to (slightly) more people a couple of times, but never had a crowd response as vociferous , passionate and heartfelt as the concert last night.

"It was a very very important night for me, for one heavy reason. Sao Paulo, Brazil was the very last concert the original SKID ROW ever played. Fact is, Sao Paulo is the city where I have played my worst ever show... and 14 years later, last nite, quite possibly my best ever show. That's show biz!

"The last SKID ROW show was in 1996, with MERCYFUL FATE, BIOHAZARD, MOTÖRHEAD and IRON MAIDEN. Needless to say, it was not the bill for us and the crowd let us know it.

"Driving to the show last night I was filled with trepidation, not knowing what to expect after the 1996 show. I was not prepared in any way for the reception we received last night.

"I have played Wembley Stadium. Giants Stadium. Tokyo Dome. Skydome. Carrier Dome. Tacoma Dome. Lenin Stadium. I can honestly say last night's show kicked ass over all of those. No question.

"For those of you out there clinging to nostalgia, asking me, 'When is the old band getting back together?' ad nauseam, I'm telling you, that ain't gonna happen. Last night's show was the culmination of 14 years of me being a solo artist and trying to establish my band in its own right. Last night's show really showed us that our band, plainly put, fucking rules.

"To play the same city where the old band died and the new band took over is all I need. The fact is, my new band plays better. With 'Angel Down' and the new songs I am working on with Nick Sterling and John 5, we have our own material that is goin' over just as well as the old songs. Fact.

"Last night was the perfect show for us... and the crowd let us now it. From the bottom of our hearts, we cannot thank you enough Sao Paulo and Brasil, for your unbelievable support. You have erased a bad memory in my head and replaced it with making my dreams come true.

"Ti amo. Obrigado!!!
