Megadeth bassist announces spoken word tour

Megadeth bassist David Ellefson has announced a spoken word tour of Australia for March 2015.

"An Evening With David Ellefson” will feature stories from life on the road and about life as a founding member of Megadeth, as told through his 2013 memoir, “My Life With Deth.”

Written with Joel McIver, the book chronicles the story of Ellefson's fall into addiction during the band's early years, followed by his subsequent recovery and the return to faith which championed the band's rise to fame over the past several decades.

The spoken word events will also feature a bass demonstration and audience Q&A.

Ellefson will make appearances in five Australian cities in March, including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

Megadeth drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick recently issued separate statements announcing that they have left the band to pursue other projects.
