Walter Trout lists US, Europe and UK tour dates

Walter Trout has announced tour dates in the US, Europe and the UK – and he’s described the act of playing live as an essential part of his healing process.

He’s continuing to perform material from latest album Battle Scars, written about his brush with death while waiting for a liver transplant in 2014.

Trout says: “The songs come out a little bit different each night, as I feed off inspiration from the audience. It’s still therapeutic to play these songs about my journey to death’s door and back. Each time I share them with a live audience, I heal a little bit more.”

Battle Scars was released in October.
