SEBASTIAN BACH Storms Off Stage In Sydney

A BLABBERMOUTH.NET visitor from Australia has submitted the following report:

"Sebastian Bach stormed off the stage at his concert on Thursday night (Sep. 14) in Sydney, Australia. Frustrated with some audience members launching projectiles towards the stage, Bach made good on his threat of an early finish when a half-full plastic cup of beer was hurtled in the general direction of the band during the intro riff to 'Youth Gone Wild'. Bach threw his microphone down and stormed off, leaving a bemused crowd asking 'Youth Gone Where?'"

A member of Bach's official forum, who calls himself "davem", posted the following review of last night's performance:

"Tonight's show at Selina's in Sydney was fantastic but sadly ended rather abruptly with Seb storming off after having one too many bottle and can thrown at him. I would have liked to get my hands on whatever clowns came out tonight with apparently nothing else to do but ruin a great gig but that's the thing about pussies, They like to hide in the safety of a crowd. I was lucky enough to see SKID ROW a number of times but tonight I was with people who had not seen them and it is a shame that they were robbed of some classic stuff due to the actions of a few morons. We are seriously starved of quality gigs in this town and it pisses me off that a show this good finished the way it did. I hope that this does not stop Sebastian from returning as we need more rock n roll here."

Another forum member, named "dagz1207", added:

"He got to the last song. He warned people continuously throughout the show to stop chucking crap on stage. He walked off once at the beginning of 'Youth Gone Wild', after someone threw a can or something at at him. Came back on, and kicked the guy out. Warned us all one last time to stop it or he was gone. Started 'Youth' again and then some asshole chucked something, then he was gone! I was up top watching one guy getting hassled that he stopped the show. He ran out of the building pretty darn quick!!! Great show, though! Best frontman ever!! Bas rocks!!!!"

As previously reported, an 18-minute audio interview with Sebastian Bach, conducted recently by Andrew Haug of Triple J's "Full Metal Racket" (based in Australia), can be downloaded at this location.
