Georgia's finest Blackberry Smoke have announced a European tour for Spring 2022. The 22-date tour kicks off in Barcelona, Spain, on February 3, and climaxes in London just over a month later on March 6. Support on all dates comes from Nashville country rockers The Steel Woods, and tickets go on general sale at 9am local time this Friday June 4. Full dates below. 

Blackberry Smoke frontman Charlie Starr says, "We have been away too long, home too long, and it is past time to get back to the UK and Europe for some rock'n'roll shows with all of our brothers, sisters, friends and family there. We hope we see everyone out for these amazing shows!"

It'll be the first time the band have set foot on UK soil since they placed with Tedeschi Trucks Band at Wembley Arena in February 2020, a few weeks before lockdown. 

The news comes in the wake of the release of the band's latest studio album, You Hear Georgia, which came out on Friday. On the same day, the band released a video for foot-to-the-floor rocker All Over the Road from the album.
