David Ellefson Announces “Basstory” Storytelling Tour

David Ellefson "Basstory"Megadeth bassist David Ellefson has been in the game for over 30 years, so you know he’s got some stories to tell. In addition to his recently announced second memoir, More Life with Deth, he has announced a personal storytelling tour called “Basstory: An Intimate Evening Of Riffs And Repartee With David Ellefson.”

“I have always done clinics, and a few years ago did an amazing spoken-word tour in Australia to support my book My Life With Deth, and have always welcomed the opportunity to be able to meet and connect with fans on a more intimate level,” Ellefson says. “These important parts of my professional life converged to create ‘Basstory’. Not only will fans get to hear some of their favorite bass riffs, but the stories behind them. It’s not often I get to get into small, intimate rock clubs, the way this all started, and I’m excited for fans to get to experience this show.”

The outing kicks off September 20th at Dante’s in Portland, Oregon before heading to Washington for a pair of dates and Texas for another pair. VIP tickets to the show include an autographed photo plus hang time with Ellefson himself prior to the show. Tickets and more details are available on the David Ellefson Basstory website.
