Alter Bridge announce European tour

Alter Bridge have announced dates for a fall tour of Europe.

Following the recent sell-out of a UK and Ireland run – that opens with two nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall in early October – the band will perform a dozen more shows across Europe in support of 2016’s “The Last Hero.”

The group plan to deliver a totally different set list than they played on a recently-completed summer run in the region.

“Europe, are you ready for the final installment of The Last Hero Tour?!” says the band.

Tickets – including VIP Meet & Greets and guitar clinics with Mark Tremonti – will go on sale July 19 at 10am local time.

The fall European run will follow the September 8 release of a new collection, “Live At The O2 Arena + Rarities”, via Napalm Records.

The 3-CD package captures the group in concert at the London venue on November 24, 2016, alongside a disc of 13 rarities from their career.

While the first two discs feature the live performance, the third disc delivers 13 rarities from their career, including never-before released tracks "Cruel Sun" and "Solace” that were recorded during the sessions for their 2004 debut, “One Day Remains”, as well as the song “Breathe” from the same time which has only ever been available as a US retail exclusive via Best Buy.

These tracks join seven other songs that have only been released in Japan until this collection.

“Live At The O2 Arena + Rarities” will be available as a 3CD set, and limited deluxe editions – including a 4-LP set and a CD/DVD Earbook – which also include an exclusive Alter Bridge documentary featuring extensive interviews with the band, their crew, and family, giving an amazing glimpse behind the scenes of the group’s biggest UK show.
