ALTER BRIDGE Announce UK Arena Tour; Shinedown & Halestorm To Join Them!
ALTER BRIDGE are thrilled to announce they will be returning to the UK for a six-date arena tour this October. The upcoming tour marks the band’s first time back in the UK since November 2011. In the interim, guitarist Mark Tremonti released his debut solo record 'All I Was', singer/guitarist Myles Kennedy returned fronting Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, and drummer Scott Phillips teamed up with friends in Sevendust to form Projected. ALTER BRIDGE toured extensively in support of their last album 'ABIII', released in 2010. That tour was immortalized in the band’s now legendary sold-out performance at London’s Wembley Arena in November 2011 and released as the Alter Bridge: Live At Wembley DVD. Currently, the band - completed by bassist Brian Marshall - are hard at work writing/recording their new album, set for release via Roadrunner Records this September.
Frontman Myles Kennedy exclaims, "Thrilled to be returning to the UK with SHINEDOWN and HALESTORM later this year! I’m looking forward to reconnecting with the part of the world that embraced ALTER BRIDGE from the start".
