Scott Ian’s Speaking Words UK tour announced for May/June 2013

By December 6, 2012 December 23rd, 2016 Culture, London, Manchester, News, York

Anthrax’s Scott Ian will be doing a Speaking Words tour across the UK and Ireland in May and June next year following the success of a one-off spoken word evening in London this November.

Scott will be speaking on the topic of his life over the last three decades, and will conclude with a Q+A session at the end of the gig.

“My first Speaking Words tour and I get to do it in the UK and Ireland? Really? Wow, how fu**ing cool is that!!! My one-off show in London went so well and now I get to speak words at you all over the place. Thank you for having a superior sense of humour.

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.”
