Fan-filmed video footage of former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach performing at the Rock Fest ’80s festival — which was held April 2-3 in Sunrise, Florida — can be seen below.

In anticipation of his upcoming book, "18 And Life On Skid Row", Bach will embark on a U.S. spring tour that will incorporate an intimate acoustic set followed by a full electric live show.

Says Bach: "'An Evening With Sebastian Bach'. No, that doesn't mean we're going to end up in the back of a police car. It means that for selected shows on the upcoming tour, we want to do something brand-new. Let's bring the music back to its purest form.

"We have been touring a lot in the last few years so it's time to do something different. You're going to get two sets for the price of one. We're going to open up the show with some stripped-down tunes, re-set the stage, and then come back with the Big Guns."

The tour kicks off on April 27 in Jacksonville, Florida and wraps up in Salt Lake City on June 3.

Bach's upcoming memoir "18 And Life On Skid Row" is now set for a June 28 release through Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. "Pushing the book gives us the opportunity to really finish it properly," Bach says. "The publishers asked me for 30 pictures. I gave them 150.

"There are easy ways to do memoirs, simple ways to do biographies. What separates these books is the archival content. '18 And Life On Skid Row' could also be called 'The Skid Row Archives'. I am giving you my personal collection, photos, and documents none of you have ever seen. A lot of them.

"I look forward to the book release and the book tour following the book release.

"If I am going to go on a tour of book stores, I have to really be into the book. June 28th release date gives us an extra month to pay attention to detail. In a project of this scope there are many details."

In his memoir, Bach recounts lurid tales of excess and debauchery as he toured the world with BON JOVI, AEROSMITH, MÖTLEY CRÜE, SOUNDGARDEN, PANTERA, NINE INCH NAILS and GUNS N' ROSES. Filled with never-before-seen photos from his own personal collection, "18 And Life On Skid Row" is the story of hitting it big at a young age, and of creatively reeling from a band that broke up in its prime.

From a man who achieved his wildest dreams, only to lose his family, and then his home, this is a tale of perseverance, of wine, women and song, and of a man who has made his life on the road. "18 And Life On Skid Row" is not your ordinary rock memoir, because Sebastian Bach is not your ordinary rock star.
