Anthrax’s Scott Ian has an impressive bio. Thrash metal inventor, metal/rap cross over initiator, author, horror movie expert, TV star and son-in-law to Meat Loaf.

As one of the metal world’s most iconic figures, Ian has just announced he will be in Australia for a series of spoken word events this September in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.  

Experiencing Ian in an entirely new way, fans will be able to revel in all the debauchery and hear wild on-the-road stories from an almost 40-year career.  

Speaking about the tour, Ian said, "One Man Riot is what I call my talking show because the pretension of saying I am doing a 'Spoken Word' show is too much to bear”.

“This isn’t a poetry reading. This isn't an evening of sensitive discourse. It's an evening of ridiculous truth.  

“It's me talking (swearing) about this insane life I've led over the last 38 years, the people I've met and the shit that's happened.

“And when I'm done swearing, you can ask me anything you want, the floor is yours.”

Tickets are on sale tomorrow morning so make sure you hit up theGuide for all the details.
