Alter Bridge announce European tour

Alter Bridge have announced a series of headline dates and festival appearances as part of a summer tour of Europe in support of their latest album, “The Last Hero.”

On the heels of a just-announced spring US trek, shows will begin in Germany with gigs at Bavaria’s Rock Im Park on June 3 and Nurburgring’s Ram Am Park on June 4.

Recorded in Orlando, FL with producer Michael 'Elvis' Baskette, Alter Bridge’s fifth record debuted at No. 8 on the US Billboard 200 upon its release last fall.

The set was launched with the first single, “Show Me A Leader.”

“With this record in particular, there was a lot going on,” singer Myles Kennedy revealed last fall. “It’s definitely a snapshot of a short window because the lyrics were put together as we were arranging the record during the first few months of 2016. And there was a lot going on, watching the news, paying attention to campaigns and race relations, and just the environment around us.

“This record was definitely influenced more so than anything by the current state of affairs. So this record kind of tells a story about that. We’re certainly not pushing any sort of agenda or political views by any means, but we’re definitely diving into and taking the pulse of the world around us.”
