In news that a lot of us have been eagerly awaiting, Alter Bridge have announced their return to the UK with an arena tour scheduled for October 2013. The boys have been busy with their other projects, with Mark Tremonti releasing a cracking solo album (All I Was) and Myles Kennedy fulfilling his other main duties as front man for Slash’s band, as well as Mark, Flip and Brian doing some shows with Creed, but they’re now back to what everyone loves best, reuniting as Alter Bridge.
Alter Bridge are hard at work on their fourth studio album, with Myles Kennedy tweeting over the Easter Weekend that they are almost ready to go into pre-production. AB IV, as it’s currently referred to, will hopefully be out by the time this tour rolls around. The tour will see Alter Bridge play six arenas across England, Scotland and Wales, kicking off in Nottingham and finishing in Manchester with shows in Birmingham, Glasgow, Cardiff and their old haunt of Wembley Arena where they filmed their DVD eighteen months ago in-between.

Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy is extremely excited to be coming back to the UK for this tour, as you can see for yourselves:
Thrilled to be returning to the UK with SHINEDOWN and HALESTORM later this year! I’m looking forward to reconnecting with the part of the world that embraced ALTER BRIDGE from the start.
Alter Bridge are not coming alone as they’ve announced some very impressive support for the tour in the shape of Shinedown and Halestorm. The two bands, who toured the UK with each other in early 2012 will provide impressive support for Alter Bridge with both bands (Halestorm in particular) having enjoyed a very impressive 2012.
