Jason Newsted

On the heals of his announcement that he is going acoustic, former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted has revealed a handful of live dates for The Chophouse Band.

The series of shows will kick off on September 2nd in Crystal Bay, NV and also includes several additional stops in California including performances in Santa Cruz, Mill Valley, Napa and Sebastopol.

Earlier this month, Newtsted explained via an online video his change in musical direction from metal to acoustic. He said via Metal Hammer, "After 30 years of playing heavy music, I've been around the globe about five times. I've already climbed that mountain. We got Grammy awards, the Hall Of Fame and all those different things. That's as far as you can go in that kind of music. It's someone else's turn to have fun in that music now."

He added: "I can't play like Slipknot now. Those guys are heavier and faster than I could ever dream of playing now. This is how I can play, and this is what I'll do for the rest of time."
