Former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach has issued the following update:
"Played to almost 30,000 people in the last two nights. What a complete and utter joy it is, almost dreamlike, to play in a packed arena to 15,000 or so appreciative people. There is literally nothing else I would rather do, nowhere else I would rather be, than onstage in venues like we have been playing all this year. Toronto Air Canada Centre, Calgary Saddledome, Rexall Place in Edmonton, MTS Centre in Winnipeg, all of these shows have been some of the best of my career.
"Canada has really come out in full force and just like the Eastern Canada shows, these Western Canada shows have been so important to me for one specific reason. The bond I have shared with rock fans the world over has increased over the years. San Francisco, Tampa, Huntington WV, Worcester, Baltimore, Ottawa, Quebec City, Chicago, Ames, Minneapolis.... All of these cities turned out in full force to support our band. It is hard to describe how appreciative I am to the rock fans of these cities.
"How do you thank between 10-20 thousand rock fans in each city for making your dreams come true? Axl [Rose, GUNS N' ROSES frontman], of course, is the one who put us on the stage of every enormodome across the planet — but that does not guarantee the arena will be full for us, the opening band. But in all the aforementioned cities, each arena was packed to the gills and the people responded just as vociferously to the brand new material as they did for all our 'old' material. How truly gratifiing that is! We also have two more headline shows this year — [Saturday night, Dec. 9] at Big Easy Concert House in Spokane WA and Chico CA next week at the Senator Theatre — c'ya at the shows!!"
