HALFORD/PAINMUSEUM guitarist "Metal" Mike Chlasciak and HALFORD/PAINMUSEUM/ICED EARTH drummer Bobby Jarzombek will be joining former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach on his upcoming European tour as the support act for GUNS N' ROSES. The group's touring lineup will be completed by bassist Rob De Luca (ex-SPREAD EAGLE) and second guitarist Johnny Chromatic.
Commented Mike: "In the world of rock nothing is certain, except one thing: last-minute changes are the only thing that you can count on. And sometimes you do make changes, you turn around schedules at the drop of a dime, you make some people happy, and some not. There are also opportunities that arise which are very rewarding for a musician. Such opportunity is the GUNS N' ROSES tour that SEBASTIAN BACH band is to partake in.
"I admit that touring with one of the best bands in the world will be nothing short of killer. I have witnessed GUNS at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City and they were pretty damn amazing. For me this is one of those 'F**ck yeah' moments, same immense feeling as the times when HALFORD toured with IRON MAIDEN, played the [Madison Square] Garden, Rock In Rio, Red Rocks Amphitheathre, or when Bruce Dickinson and Geoff Tate joined HALFORD on stage in the U.K. to sing 'The One you Love To Hate'. I'm very fortunate to have had many of these moments, and damn straight that every single memory is well trasured. I can almost taste the air when we play Poland, a country I was born in and grew up in until I was 14 ... it has been always one of my dreams to go back there and play my ass off.
"So, not to turn this into a f**cking novel .... PAINMUSEUM's June 11th Big Bop Concert Hall concert date is sadly postponed, as myself and Bobby Jarzombek had to rearrange our schedules to leave early for Europe to join up with Bach for the tour. But, we do promise our Canadian maniacs that we will return as soon as we get a chance. Ticket refund questions should be directed to the place you have purchased them."
