Anthrax Legend Scott Ian Announces 2018 Australian Speaking Tour

Anthrax member and thrash metal legend Scott Ian has announced his return to Australia, but this time it’s part of his ‘One Man Riot’ speaking tour.

Setting up in venues across Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane between September and October, Ian — the only remaining founding member of Anthrax — will be chatting with fans about anything and everything, including his time in bands like Stormtroopers Of Death and The Damned Things.

“‘One Man Riot’ is what I call my talking show because the pretension of saying I am doing a ‘Spoken Word’ show is too much to bear,” says Ian.

“This isn’t a poetry reading. This isn’t an evening of sensitive discourse. It’s an evening of ridiculous truth.”

VIP Meet And Greet tickets will also be available, and will include a pre-show meet and greet, a copy of Ian’s new book ‘Access All Areas’, an after-show ‘beer with Scott’ and more.

Catch all the tour dates and ticket details, below.

Anthrax last performed in Australia as part of Soundwave Festival (RIP) in 2013 alongside Metallica and Slayer, and since then there’s been talk that the ‘big four’ metal bands (Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax) could still play more shows together.

Anthrax released their latest album For All Kings in 2016.
