Black Star Riders bring their Coming Under Heavy Fire tour to Hull.

Following a sold out European Tour in early 2017, Black Star Riders return to the UK for a headline tour in November 2017. They bring a stunning bill featuring, Blues Pills, Tax The Heat and Dirty Thrills.

Black Star Riders

Off the back of the release of their third studio album “Heavy Fire”, that received widespread critical acclaim, Black Star Riders embarked upon a sold out European Tour in early 2017. Their album went to #1 in the UK Rock & Indie charts, #3 in the UK Vinyl chart and #6 in the UK National chart.

Blues Pills

Very few modern bands are lucky enough to have such a unique, individual and inimitable style as well as being blessed with such an incredible voice at the forefront. They’ve toured non-stop for the past few years playing with the likes of Deep Purple, Rival Sons and Kadavar as well as headline shows. Their organic blend of blues, classic rock and soul winning audiences the world over.

Tax The Heat

Just out of the studio, they have been recording their follow up to the critically acclaimed debut album “Fed to the Lions”. The highly anticipated, as yet unnamed, second album is scheduled for release by Nuclear Blast Entertainment in early 2018.

Dirty Thrills

London based Dirty Thrills open the bill, with a set containing songs from their debut album “Heavy Living” which is scheduled for release on 15 September, via the Frontiers label.
