They’ll play nine shows across the country on the Coming Under Heavy Fire tour, kicking off with a set at Wolverhampton’s Wulfrun Hall on the 8th of the month and wrapping up at Portsmouth’s Pyramids on the 19th.

Special guests on the tour will be Blues Pills, Tax The Heat and Dirty Thrills.

Black Star Riders frontman Ricky Warwick says: “There’s nothing more exciting than playing live. Black Star Riders are absolutely thrilled to get back out in the UK – a wonderful way to round out a great year!”

Blues Pills bassist Zach Anderson adds: “We are very pleased that we will be opening for the Black Star Riders on their UK tour this November.

“We are really excited to warm up the stage for these legends. We hope to see a lot of familiar faces in front of stage and are really looking forward to meeting a lot of new people.”

Tickets go on sale from 9am on Wednesday, August 2, via the BSR website.
