Folowers of @rushonrock via Twitter have been chatting about this for a day or two now but we can confirm that Black Stone Cherry will be touring the UK in March!

The boys are about to hit our shores as special guests on the Alter Bridge arena tour with fellow Roadrunner artists Theory Of A Deadman. But questions were asked as to why the ‘Cherry had picked a support slot rather than head out on a headline tour of their own.

Guitarist Ben Wells told rushonrock: “We did debate it but it’s great to play the big arenas. And the only way ourselves and Alter Bridge can do that is by teaming up.

“So we’re doing these shows before Christmas but then we’re coming back in the spring. We’re just about to announce a full headline tour of the UK for March 2012 so keep your eyes peeled!”
