As tour announcements go, quite frankly this one is pretty bad ass! Pennsylvanian rockers Halestorm are to return to the UK roughly a year since they were last here for a huge ten date UK tour.
This new tour will see Halestorm play their biggest UK shows so far, including their biggest ever UK headline show at the Roundhouse in London’s Camden Town. What’s more, they’re bringing two awesome bands with them on the tour. Fresh off a huge run of shows with The Pretty Reckless, the main support slot is going to be filled by Texans Nothing More while the opening slot is going to be taken by Detroit rockers Wilson. In our book that’s quite a touring package! Full confirmation of the dates can be found below:

Halestorm’s fiery frontman Lzzy Hale has had this to say about returning to the UK:
“We are so stoked to get back to our European Freaks in March! Thank you for all the love over the ‘net…but now we want to see your faces!!! And we have some killer friends we’re bringing along with us: NOTHING MORE and WILSON. Don’t hesitate! This is not a tour you can afford to miss!”
While Nothing More singer Jonny Hawkins also chimed in:
We just wrapped up an amazing tour of the UK and are itching to get back, so we are stoked to return to the UK and Europe with the amazing Halestorm. We first met Lzzy and Joe a few months back at one of our shows in Nashville. We felt an instant connection with them and had a feeling we’d find a way to join them on the the road at some point. Here we come!”
Not to be left out, Wilson’s vocalist Chad Nicefield also wanted to contribute:
“We are humbly honoured to be a part of Halestorm’s European tour. You can fully expect WILSON to bring the heat! This is our first time delivering our freshly baked Fuckery goods across the pond and we cannot wait to bring it worldwide!”
