Sebastian Bach Slave to the Grind 30th Anniversary Tour took place at Culture Room in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on November 6, 2021. The former lead singer of Skid Row sang every song from the Slave to the Grind album with an intensity that brought the house down. He also included classic tunes like “I Remember You,” “Youth Gone Wild,” “18 and Life” as well as “Get the Fuck Out.” The band performed a medley featuring the music of Metallica, KISS, Poison and Mötley Crüe.
Throughout the evening Sebastian Bach regaled fans with stories from the past. He talked about recording Slave to the Grind at New River Studios in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and Scream Studios in Studio City, California. Bach fondly recalled how he would buy pizza for the kids who came out to the studios to meet the band.
One of the highlights of the concert happened when Sebastian Bach payed tribute to musicians who passed away. He, of course, remembered Eddie Van Halen and Neil Peart. After honoring the progressive drummer, Sebastian and his bandmates launched into a solid rendition of “Tom Sawyer.” It’s no surprise that Skid Row had many fans. One of them was Dimebag of Pantera and Damageplan. Sebastian Bach revealed the late guitar player’s favorite song from the Slave to the Grind album was “in a Darkened Room.”
Fans in attendance got to see Sebastian Bach deliver an unforgettable performance. His voice was commanding and stage presence captivating. Despite the audience’s eagerness to get closer to the frontman, Sebastian Bach apologized for not shaking hands or fist bumping while on stage. He opted, instead, for a socially safe concert experience.
