David Ellefson Announces “Bass Chronicles” Storytelling Tour

David Ellefson's Bass Chronicles

David Ellefson has plenty of stories to tell. He’s written two memoirs and toured a show called “Basstory: An Intimate Evening Of Riffs And Repartee With David Ellefson.” Now that live events are beginning to open up, he’s announced a new storytelling tour called “Bass Chronicles.”

The concert series is kicking off this fall with four shows in September. Ellefson will be joined by vocalist Andre Vanchot, drummer Christian “Opus” Lawrence, and guitarists Dave Sharpe and Drew Fortier. Together, they’ll perform a chronological set from the Megadeth bassist’s career including some deep cuts.

“I’m excited to head out and hit the stage again as we’re preparing a special list of songs, including some rarities which have never been performed live,” he states. “People are excited about live shows again so we’re approaching these events like a traveling pop-up experience where you can catch a show, see a flick, buy some merch, and even break bread with the band at the VIP dinners. So, get ready for a full night out!”

Tickets for the shows, including VIP Dinner purchases, are available now through Ellefson’s website.

    Too bad Ellefson was accused in a sex scandle and thrown out of Megadeath. This will not help his upcoming Chronicals tour eiether.

      What happens between two consenting adults is nobody’s business. I hope he has shows a little closer to New York
