ANTHRAX’s Scott Ian: “Speaking Words: Live In Glasgow” DVD Trailer Now StreamingWednesday, 22nd January 2014
At this point, it’s no surprise to anyone that legendary heavy metal musician, author, and television personality Scott Ian has a lot to say. After decades-worth of international touring with ANTHRAX, bumping elbows with illustrious (and sometimes ridiculous) characters all over the media spectrum, and undergoing general “you won’t believe this” experiences – Scott Ian certainly has some hilarious and surprisingly personal stories to share.
Following the resounding success of the UK leg of his Speaking Words tour, Scott is picking up the mic again for a 15-city North American leg, kicking off in Chicago, IL on February 20th. An official Speaking Words tour teaser, featuring professional footage from his upcoming Speaking Words: Live In Glasgow DVD (pre-order coming soon), can be seen below:
Don’t mistake this for your run-of-the-mill spoken word tour. In Scott Ian’s own words, “it ain’t no poetry reading” either. Speaking Words is an honest look at the insane life that Scott has led for the last 31 years, the people he’s met, and the events that coincide. During each show, Scott will take part in a special Q&A session with the audience.
Scott adds, “England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, Germany; I’ve been Speaking Words all over the world. My friends in the US and Canada, you asked for it and now I finally get to bring it home! I’m looking forward to talking with ya, talking at ya and telling you some amazing tales of drunken debauchery and ridiculousness. No punches pulled, no swear word left unturned, and no question avoided in the Q&A. Let’s do this!”
A special opportunity to join a VIP meet & greet at each date is available now via Scott Ian’s webstore. This unique and limited event will allow you to spend time with Scott like never before. It’s a veritable post show hangout with a metal legend – one that’s sure to enrich your knowledge of not only all-things Scott Ian, but Anthrax and metal history in general.
