Black Star Riders announce huge UK & Ireland tour for 2017

The boys are back town again…

In support of their much anticipated new album ‘Heavy Fire’, hard rockers Black Star Riders have announced an extensive UK and Ireland tour.

Vocalist/guitarist Ricky Warwick had this to say:

“It seems like ages since we did the Leppard / Whitesnake tour so we are all really looking forward to be back out on the road with BSR.  Our third album will be out just prior to the dates so its going to be great to play tracks from that along with favorites from the first two records also.  Having my old friends from Backyard Babies, Gun and The Amorettes out with us too is just icing on the cake to make a great tour!”
