In January, ex-Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach announced plans to tour the U.S. this fall to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his old band’s 1991 album, Slave to the Grind, which he planned to perform in its entirety.  Now we have details of that trek, which will kick off in the fall.

Announcing the tour on Facebook, Bach writes, “The music was crushing when we made it then and 30 years later it still stands the test of time…None of us could believe the day Slave to the Grind came out and became the First heavy Rock album to debut at Number One on the Billboard Album chart.”

“The band were naturally ecstatic as were the record company and all involved…As well as my father and my family,” Bach continues, noting that his late father, David Bierk, created and painted the album cover.

He adds, “I look forward to playing Slave to the Grind in its entirety in the USA this fall for the 30th Anniversary and for the first time offer a look behind the scenes into the creation of the album cover artwork.”

Bach further explains that during the shows, he plans to incorporate “never-before-seen-photos” taken during the creation of the album cover, “which used actual live models playing out the scene in my Dad’s studio back in 1990-1991.”

The tour begins September 24 in Waterloo, New York, and is scheduled to wrap December 17 in San Diego. Visit for the itinerary and tickets.

Bach previously launched a 30th anniversary tour for Skid Row’s 1989 self-titled debut album in 2019. He’d planned for the tour to continue in 2020, but those dates were postponed due to the pandemic.
