Black Stone Cherry have announced a UK tour.

The 14-date run of shows will take place across November and December and have been lined up in support of their fifth studio album Kentucky, which launched in April this year.

The band say: “We have been very fortunate to play some incredible shows in the UK the past few years. After headlining two arena tours and being a part of some amazing festivals, we wanted to bring it back to an atmosphere that we know our fans will enjoy and truly deserve.

“This tour is a way for us to bring the show to them and to play venues that allow us to deliver a very special night featuring two sets of music, like we’ve never done before. No other bands – just the four of us and our fans.

“We are truly thrilled to bring this unique Black Stone Cherry experience to the UK. We have never done anything like this before and we knew the UK was the only place to do it. That’s all we’re gonna say about it.”

Tickets for the UK shows go on sale on July 29 via LiveNation (opens in new tab).

Last week, the group released a video for their track The Rambler starring Billy Ray Cyrus. The band continue their US tour in support of Kentucky this week.
