Rocker Sebastian Bach has axed a string of shows in South Africa because of "scheduling conflicts".

The former Skid Row frontman was due to play with the band Kings Of Chaos next month (Jun13), but he has pulled out of the dates to record his next album and focus on his Tv commitments.

A post on his page reads, "Due to scheduling conflicts with the recording of his forthcoming studio album and the production schedule for a new major network television show, Sebastian Bach will not be able to perform with Kings Of Chaos in South Africa this June. He hopes to tour with them in the very near future and wishes them the best with these dates. Look for news on Bach's new album and Tv show very soon!"
