In a unique event Megadeth’s founding member and bass guitarist David Ellefson is heading to Australia for a Spoken Word Tour. Dates (March 24th – 29th). & locations are listed below.
An evening with David Ellefson will feature stories from life on the road and about life as a founding member of one of the biggest metal acts in the world documenting all the trials and tribulations. The night will also feature a bass demonstration and audience Q&A which will allow fans to delve deeper into all things Megadeth and David’s autobiography ‘My Life With Deth’ a story about the complex history of the band.
From the Megadeth’s inception in 1983 until the band’s temporary disbandment in 2002, David Ellefson was the only constant member other than bandleader, Dave Mustaine. David was a pivotal part in Megadeth’s progression from a ferocious jazz infused thrash group to a state of the art speed metal band and into a multiplatinum, chart topping, global juggernaut.
After Megadeth disbanded in 2002, Ellefson pursued a variety of projects including playing with Soulfly and forming the band F5, amongst other endeavours. In 2010 David re-joined Megadeth for the 20th Anniversary of the band’s seminal, genre defining classic, “Rust in Peace”. Since then he has reclaimed his rightful place within one of heavy metal’s most revered bands.
Through highs and lows, David Ellefson has experienced the gamut of rock star fame, fortune and excess and lived to tell the tale. This is your only chance to get a personal insight into the history and behind the scenes of one of metal’s most iconic bands, Megadeth. Don’t miss this unique event!! A must see for every metal fan.
“My Life With Deth works on multiple levels. It’s a behind the scenes story of Megadeth , it’s a story of overcoming drug addiction and it’s the story of a man’s walk of faith. What could have easily been a life ruined and wasted turned into a life that was redeemed and restored, and Ellefson‘s story of how it all happened is extremely interesting and inspiring.” – Chad Bowar (heavymetal.about.com)
