Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian will be hitting the road this year for a spoken word tour, stemming from a successful one-off date he performed last year.
Ian will perform 16 dates in the U.K. in May and June for Metal Hammer magazine.
"I've seen [Henry] Rollins do it all these years," Ian told Decibel magazine. "I saw Rollins, maybe on the first time he ever did a tour I went to see what it was going to be about . . . it's something that I always wanted to do and I finally had the opportunity this year."
Ian said that that one-off spoken word date in London went so well that he jumped at the chance to do more.
"Y'know it's weird, I know a lot of people are terrified but I don't find public speaking terrifying for some crazy reason. Maybe there is something wrong with me!"
