They recently announced they’d inked a record deal with Napalm Records, and now Alter Bridge have announced they’re returning to the country who’ve given them their greatest success so far. Mark, Myles, Scott and Brian will be back in the UK starting in late November for 7 huge arena shows, including Alter Bridge’s first time headlining London’s biggest arena The O2 in Greenwich. This follows on from two previous arena tours including the iconic show at Wembley Arena in 2011 which was filmed for the band’s most recent live DVD.
Alter Bridge by themselves would be enough to excite most people on this but they’ve lined up an absolutely insane supporting cast as well. Joining them in the special guest slot are Danish rockers Volbeat, who’ve recently released yet another acclaimed album in the form of Seal The Deal & Let’s Boogie. Also on board are French metal titans and recent Metal Hammer cover stars Gojira, who’ve just released their most adventurous work to date with Magma. Rounding off the bill are New Zealand rockers Like A Storm, who are coming halfway round the world to be a part of this fantastic trek.
