Rock titans ALTER BRIDGE have confirmed an extensive European tour this winter.
The “Pawns & Kings” tour will hit 25 cities over 18 countries, kicking off on November 1 in Hamburg, Germany and wrapping up on December 12 in London, England.
Bursting with riffs, ALTER BRIDGE is currently hard at work recording its seventh studio album, the follow-up to the highly acclaimed, 2019-released “Walk The Sky”, which brought the group the No. 1 spot on over a dozen charts around the globe. The band has been sharing behind the scenes photos from the studio on their social media to whet fans’ appetites. With the as-yet-untitled album expected to be released later in 2022, those snapping up tickets for these dates will be the first in the world to hear the new songs live.
Joining ALTER BRIDGE as special guests are Grammy-winning rockers HALESTORM. The esteemed Pennsylvanian powerhouse will release their blistering new album “Back From The Dead” on May 6, which includes their latest single, “The Steeple”. Renowned as a spell-binding live music force, HALESTORM‘s set is sure to be an unmissable treat.
Getting the party started each night are none other than MAMMOTH WVH, visiting some countries for the first time in support of their much-lauded, self-titled debut record. Scooping a “Best Rock Song” Grammy nomination this year for single “Distance” and currently polishing those chops on the road with GUNS N’ ROSES, they are a band you want to make sure you get in early to catch.
ALTER BRIDGE singer Myles Kennedy states: “ALTER BRIDGE is returning to the EU/UK this winter with our friends from HALESTORM and MAMMOTH. It’s going to be a delicious sonic smorgasbord of earth-shaking rock and roll that goes to 11. Don’t miss it!”
HALESTORM frontwoman Lzzy Hale comments: “To all our European Freaks, we’ve missed you, and are so happy to announce that we are finally crossing the ocean to come and see you all again! This time around we are sharing the stage with all our friends in the legendary ALTER BRIDGE and the one, the only MAMMOTH WVH! You do not want to miss this show! I can’t wait to experience the passion of you, the Euro rock fans!!! See you front and center!”
