Black Star Riders announce first US dates

Black Star Riders have announced their first US live dates.

The Thin Lizzy-offshoot will play a pair of co-headlining shows with Skid Row in Southern California in mid-May, including the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills on May 15 and the Coachouse in San Juan Capistrano on May 16.

Black Star Riders are touring in support of their debut album, “All Hell Breaks Loose.”

The band recently announced that Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott will produce their sophomore album when they hit the studio in Dublin, Ireland in October.

“Joe Elliott's passion, enthusiasm for music, as a fan, artist and friend is unquestionable and Ronan McHugh is a phenomenal engineer,” says singer Ricky Warwick. “Personally having worked with these guys before, it was a no brainer when they said they would like to produce the new BSR album. We are confident that this will be a huge leap forward in the evolution of BSR.”

“Having worked with Scott on the Thin Lizzy remixes a few years ago & having produced Ricky’s 1st 2 solo albums, I’m looking forward to taking our musical journey together even further,” added Elliott. “We’re aiming to make a serious leap forward with the next album & I’m proud to be able to contribute to the next chapter in the BSR story."
