Black Star Riders - All Hell Breaks Loose Tour - 2013 - UK - promo flyer

As reported on the Facebook of BLACK STAR RIDERS:

BLACK STAR RIDERS will be embarking on a full-scale UK and Ireland tour this November/December with Special Guests The Dead Daisies and support from Western Sand on all dates except Nov 29th.

THE DEAD DAISIES formed around the nucleus of Australians Jon Stevens (Noiseworks/INXS) and David Lowy (Red Phoenix/Mink), the powerful musical collective is completed by a lineup that speaks volumes. They include Charley Drayton (The X-pensive Winos/The Cult), Richard Fortus (Guns ‘N’ Roses/Thin Lizzy), Darryl Jones (The Rolling Stones) and Dizzy Reed (Guns ‘N’ Roses).

Marco Mendoza: “We came across The Dead Daises when we were touring Australia and what a great band they are. I was lucky enough to play with them on their Aus tour with Aerosmith and again on the Uproar Tour in the US. It’s a pleasure to have them out with us in the UK!”

Ricky Warwick: “We are all looking forward to having The Dead Daisies out with us. It’s also going to be great to be on the road with Richard Fortus again.”


WESTERN SAND are a four-piece southern hard rock revival band from Bournemouth, UK.

BLACK STAR RIDERS featuring THIN LIZZY members Ricky Warwick, Damon Johnson, Scott Gorham and Marco Mendoza together with drummer Jimmy DeGrasso (Alice Cooper / Megadeth), will be touring in support of All Hell Breaks Loose which was released in the UK via Nuclear Blast Entertainment on the 27th May 2013.

The Gloria Story’s official website is:

The Gloria Story is a mashup of punk rock attitude with 70’s hard rock energy – always with a dark twist and a catchy analogue sound. Their debut album “Shades of White” instantly hit the #1 spot on Swedish rock charts upon its release in 2011. The band has also been awarded with a platinum disc for their hit single “OH NO (2010)”. On their latest effort “Born to Lose (2013)” you will find a dirtier, more bass driven and heavier sounding The Gloria Story. No ballads, no fillers, no AOR. Just catchy punk rock melodies over chewy riffing. The concept of mixing party oriented, lo-tech rock and roll with pure entertainment has made The Gloria Story into one of the most promising Swedish touringmachines in recent years. It’s all about reinventing the sounds of the 70’s, and stopping at nothing to give their audience a great show.
