Europe, Black Star Riders to tour UK


Europe and the Black Star Riders will tour the UK together in March next year, they've confirmed.

The bands will tie up for a dozen shows together – and they’re both determined to make each night one to remember.

Europe frontman Joey Tempest says: “This is going to be amazing – it’s going to be the tour of the spring.”

BSR guitarist Scott Gorham adds: “When the idea of touring with Europe was presented, we jumped at the chance. I can’t think of a better way to kick off our second album’s touring schedule.”

His band are gearing up to record the follow-up to debut release All Hell Breaks Loose with Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott producing. Europe are also expected to release a follow-up to 2012’s Bag Of Bones early next year.
