Scott Ian is ready to bring his spoken-word show over to this side of the Atlantic. The Anthrax guitarist embarked on his one-man "Speaking Words" tour in the U.K. earlier this year, and now he's announced plans to bring it on the road in the U.S.
The trek is scheduled to start February 20th in Chicago, and will feature a total of eight stops in the northeast corner of the country.
Ian says he always felt people would enjoy hearing some of the things he's experienced after more than 30 years in a metal band. But he adds that it's also really fun for him to connect with people in a new way.
Ticket information for the "Speaking Words" trek is available at Scott-Ian.com.
