Black Rebel Motorcycle Club announce March 2013 UK tour
Story by Jack Foley
BLACK Rebel Motorcycle Club have announced six UK dates next year as part of their massive world tour and will follow the release of their seventh studio album due in March.
Robert Levon Been, Peter Hayes and Leah Shapiro’s new album is the first since 2010’s Beat The Devil’s Tattoo.
Since the band’s debut release in 2001 Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have released six albums all to critical acclaim, released two live DVD’s including 2010’s Live in London and saw them tour across the world.
On the new album and tour dates Robert said: “This album has taken every last ounce of us to bring to life, and if it wasn’t for you guys keeping us going, we don’t know if it would’ve ever seen the light of day.
“It’s going to be a joyful day indeed when we get to see you all again and share these songs with you. Peter, Leah and myself are dying to get out of this studio right now and back into the fight. It’s taken us a long while getting back on our feet, but the time has come.”
The UK tour dates are (all March 2013):
24 – Manchester HMV Ritz
25 – Glasgow O2 ABC
26 – Birmingham HMV Institute
27 – London O2 Academy Brixton
29 – Nottingham Rock City
30 – Leeds O2 Academy
Tickets are £19.50 (£22.50 London) and go on sale on Wednesday, November 21 at 9am.
