Following their jaw-dropping set at Download festival this weekend, U.S. rock giants Alter Bridge have announced their return to the U.K. for two very special headline shows on October 2 and October 3. Appearing at the legendary Royal Albert Hall in London for the first time, the band will treat the audience to an array of songs never before played live as well as fan favorite hits, drawn from their acclaimed five-album catalog. In another first, the group will also be accompanied by the Parallax Orchestra — a 52-piece London-based symphony orchestra conducted by Simon Dobson — adding an impressive new dimension to their already captivating live show.
Tickets for the two nights go on general sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 16. Pre-sales begin 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 14 via O2 and 10 a.m. Thursday, June 15 via Live Nation and the Royal Albert Hall.
As previously reported, Alter Bridge will release of a new live album and rarities collection, “Live At The O2 Arena + Rarities”, on September 8 via Napalm Records.
One of the biggest moments of the band’s career was the monumental show at London’s famous O2 Arena on November 26, 2016. That landmark performance was captured in its entirety. The two-CD, nineteen-track recording documents what an enormous presence Alter Bridge have become on concert stages around the world.
Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips tear through hits like ‘Farther Than The Sun’, ‘Show Me A Leader’, ‘Rise Today’, and their masterpiece ‘Isolation’, showcasing a band at the top of their game. Other highlights include the Tremonti-sung ‘Waters Rising’, the acoustic-driven “Watch Over You” and Alter Bridge‘s signature anthem ‘Blackbird’. (read more)
