Scott Ian (Anthrax) ‘Speaking Words’ UK Tour May/June 2013

Back in November Scott Ian of Anthrax did a one off speaking words gig at The Garage in London. It went down so well that he is now to set off on a ‘Speaking Words’ tour next May/June in the UK and Ireland.

Scott recently said:

It’s an evening of ridiculous truth. It’s me talking (swearing) about this insane life I’ve led over the last 31 years, the people I’ve met and the shit that’s happened. And when I’m done swearing, you can ask me anything you want, the floor is yours. Cheers my friends, see you in May and June.”

I’m calling it ‘Speaking Words’ because the pretension of saying I am doing a ‘Spoken Word’ tour is too much to bear. This ain’t no poetry reading. This isn’t an evening of sensitive discourse. 

Scott Ian’s ‘Speaking Words’ tour will be sponsored by Metal Hammer magazine.
