Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian announced that he has launched a Pledge Music campaign for his "Speaking Words In Glasgow" DVD as he prepares to bring the show to North America later this month.
Ian will be kicking off his North American "Speaking Words" tour on February 20th in Chicago at Mayne Stage and concluding the trek on March 8th in Portland, ME at Port City Music Hall.
During each show, Ian will also take part in a special Q&A session with the audience. The DVD was captured during Glasgow stop on his previous UK Tour.
Proving that he is a man of many words, Ian had this to say about the project, "I've always loved musicians like Jello Biafra and Henry Rollins, who have the balls to do spoken word performances. It's just them and the mike. There's no band to make them look good or cover up their mistakes. They're alone, naked. It's seemed like a really cool thing to do, but I'm not especially political and while I'm interested in a lot of different subjects from good food to great comic books, I'm not enough of an expert in any one area to get onstage and talk about it like I know any more than anyone else."
