Black Star Riders have lined up an extensive March 2017 tour in support of their eagerly awaited third studio album ‘Heavy Fire’ which includes a date at Ironworks, Inverness on Wednesday March 7th!
Ricky Warwick, Scott Gorham, Damon Johnson, Robert Crane and Jimmy DeGrasso will play a total of 16 shows in the UK and Ireland after a yearlong hiatus from touring.
Support will come from Scottish hard rock bastions Gun and The Amorettes!
Vocalist Ricky Warwick enthuses: “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 Black Star Riders.
“Our third album will be out just prior to the dates so its going to be great to play tracks from that along with favourites 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!”
Black Star Riders are currently holed up in the studio in Nashville, Tennessee with esteemed Grammy-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush, Alice In Chains) putting the finishing touches to ‘Heavy Fire’.
Scott Gorham says: “It’s great to be back with Nick, after such a great job on The Killer Instinct it was a no brainer to continue the relationship and this album is going to blow everyone away.”
