Rock fans unite! The one and only Sebastian Bach is returning to Fort Wayne for a performance at The Clyde Theatre on Thursday, Nov. 18. 

The late 1980s iconic frontman for mainstream heavy metal/hard rock act Skid Row remains one of the most relevant rock figures in pop culture today. Although Bach has been solo for quite some time, he will revisit his Skid Row past on this tour, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the band’s Slave to the Grind album. 

The double-platinum selling album was the first heavy metal album to chart at number one on the Billboard 200 thanks to singles “Monkey Business,” “Wasted Time,” and the title track. The tour will run from September through December and will see the singer performing the album in its entirety. 

Joining Bach at The Clyde will be Detroit rock veterans Kaleido

Tickets can be purchased online at as well as at the Clyde box office, Neat Neat Neat Records, all Wooden Nickel locations, and the Sweetwater concierge desk. You can also call (800) 514-3849.

Pedal to the metal for Chevelle 

In more big tour news, multi-platinum rockers Chevelle will be heading back on the road this fall in support of their ninth studio album, NIRATIAS, which stands for Nothing Is Real And This Is A Simulation.
