Megadeth bassist and EMP Label Group founder Dave Ellfson is launching a new solo tour.

Ellefson, who also runs Ellefson Coffee Company, will embark on what he has dubbed the “Basstory” starting September 21 in Portland, Oregon.  The tour is being labeled as an intimate “storyteller” type of presentation in which Ellefson stories of his years in the music industry along with solo bass performances.

The tour is currently very short with only five confirmed dates including two dates in Texas and two more in Washington state.  The tour’s current schedule is noted below.

9/20 Portland, OR – Dante’s
9/21 Spokane Valley, WA – The Roadhouse
9/22 Fife, WA – Louie G’s
9/28 San Antonio, TX – Fitzgerald’s
9/29 Houston, TX – BFE Rock Club

Tickets and VIP packages are available now here.

Ellefson said of the new tour dates and format that he has been looking forward to the outing.

“I have always done clinics, and a few years ago did an amazing spoken word tour in Australia to support my book My Life With ‘Deth, and have always welcomed the opportunity to be able to meet and connect with fans on a more intimate level.  These important parts of my professional life converged to create BASSTORY,” Ellefson said.  “Not only will fans get to hear some of their favorite bass riffs, but the stories behind them.  It’s not often I get to get into small, intimate rock clubs, the way this all started, and I’m excited for fans to get to experience this show.”
