“I’m really excited about this Unplugged tour! It’s going to be such a different experience from my normal W13 shows. This tour will see Roman and Jack on guitar, along with myself of course, for these shows. I’ve had this idea for some years and I always thought it would be cool to do ‘An Acoustic Evening with…’, along with the stories behind the songs and interacting with the fans. I will be playing music from my entire musical catalogue, from Frankenstein Drag Queens, all the way through Murderdolls and into my solo material.”
[NOTE: I’m crossing my fingers for some Bourbon Crows material – Mosh]
