BLACK STONE CHERRY ANNOUNCE APRIL 2017 AUSTRALIAN TOUR
Hard Rock Heroes BLACK STONE CHERRY have had a dynamite year. They’ve dropped their latest record KENTUCKY worldwide, they’ve toured Australia with Steel Panther and they have done the biggest show in the world, Wembley Arena earlier in 2016.
The Good ol’ boys from Kentucky, USA are today announcing their April 2017 Australian tour, via promoters MJR Presents. The tour will go on fan pre-sale 20th September 2016 and on general sale 21st September at mjrpresents.com.
The tour takes in amazing, iconic and vibing venues in Brisbane’s The Triffid, Sydney’s The Factory Theatre , Melbourne’s Corner Hotel and Perth’s The Capitol.
Black Stone Cherry will be arriving in Australia hot on the heels of their tour down under earlier this year with Steel Panther, where they wowed full houses early on. That was the band’s maiden voyage down under and they are returning ASAP to cement their place in Australian audiences’ hearts.
Australian crowd-favourites blues-rock legends CHASE THE SUN are joining the tour as special guest support – and they themselves will have a new album out in time for this good-times, rough-and-tumble rock tour.
Drummer for the Southern-Rock outfit, John Fred Young , is excited for the speedy return to the land down under. “We had such a kick-ass time in Australia with Steel Panther, that we just had to back it up straight away. There’s not many places in the world where we have had as much fun playing to such receptive audiences and we met a whole bunch of people that we just want to get back there to see you all again. We can’t wait.”
The band’s many singles and albums have inspired rock radio success in the UK and US, including “White Trash Millionaire” and “Please Come In”; all driven by the vocal charisma and lead guitar shred of Chris Robertson , the dynamic crunch of guitarist Ben Wells , the rhythmic pulse of bassist Jon Lawhon and the always-in-the-pocket groove of drummer John Fred Young.
AUSTRALIA MEDIA LOVE FOR BLACK STONE CHERRY:
“For our money Black Stone Cherry came out on top by a wide margin, and it was great to hear singer Chris Robinson declare that they were already planning a return visit. Hopefully then they’ll be headlining, as they deserve after such an epic set.” 100% ROCK MAGAZINE
“Tonight Black Stone Cherry did that thing where a support act finishes their set with more fans than they had when it started. It’s hard to believe that these guys have been releasing albums for a decade now, but five records and 15 years into their career, they’ve finally made it to Australia. ” – AUSTRALIAN GUITAR
“[ Black Stone Cherry ] threw themselves all over the place, putting everything they had into their performance. Overall, BSC made their first impression to Melbourne a memorable one, and I’m more than certain they have managed to earn themselves a lot of followers.” – SCENESTR
“… southern US rockers Black Stone Cherry hit the stage and crash into Me and Mary Jane . Definitely Southern, and certainly bluesy, but with some alt-metal nuances, this is a band I have been a fan of for years, and they never fail to deliver a powerful live show.” – LIFEMUSICMEDIA
“…it’s incredibly safe to say that Black Stone Cherry will have won a few fans over with their dirty, deep south groove that’s spliced with a heavy dose of alt metal. From the chunky opening riff of Me And Mary Jane , to the fist pumping White Trash Millionaire , the band give it 110%.” – AMNPLIFY
