Having already stormed the UK album chart at no.6 with Heavy Fire in February and played a sold out European tour, the UK autumn shows will be another highpoint in a triumphant 2017 for Black Star Riders. The Planet Rock Presents tour opens at Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall on Wednesday 8th November and calls in at Edinburgh, Warrington, Hull, Middlesbrough, Sheffield, Leicester and Cambridge before wrapping up at Portsmouth Pyramids on Sunday 19th November.
“There’s nothing more exciting than playing live”, says singer Ricky Warwick. “Black Star Riders are absolutely thrilled to get back out in the U.K. A wonderful way to round out a great year!”
And as if the prospect of seeing Black Star Riders in their blistering live glory wasn’t enough to tempt you, the sensational support bill boasts Blue Pills, Tax The Heat and Dirty Thrills.
Ricky and Damon recently sat down to chat about the forthcoming tour and the bands that are supporting them on this run of dates. Watch the trailer above
