Grammy award-winners, The Kentucky Headhunters, will be touring the UK this October in support of their latest album On Safari with Bad Touch riding shotgun as support.
According to the RIAA, The Kentucky Headhunters have sold over 11 million albums of their particular brand of southern rock worldwide but did not tour the UK until July 2016. Support on that tour were Bad Touch, and it’s because both bands got on so well that they have decided to do so again.
“We first met Bad Touch when they were chosen as our support act after my son John Fred’s young band, Black Stone Cherry, convinced us to do our first ever UK tour in 2016,” said Kentucky Headhunters ’ guitarist/vocalist Richard Young. “In a mere week of touring, The Headhunter‘s and Bad Touch became like a band of brothers. There is a certain charm and charisma between the two bands that transcends to the fans of both bands, on stage and off. We’re proud to announce their return for this year’s October UK dates. Simply put, it wouldn’t be the same without them.”
