Following their jaw-dropping set at Download Festival this weekend, US rock giants Alter Bridge have announced their return to the UK for two very special headline shows on October 2nd and 3rd. And once again, the curse of not living in London hits many of us as these look like incredible shows to be at.
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 favourite hits, drawn from their acclaimed five album catalogue. 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 10am on Friday 16th June. Pre-sales begin 10am Wednesday 14th June via O2 and 10am Thursday 15th June via Live Nation and the Royal Albert Hall box office on 0207 589 8212.
Alter Bridge will also release a new live album and rarities collection, Live At The O2 Arena + Rarities, on September 8th via Napalm Records. One of the biggest moments of the band’s career to date was the monumental show at London’s O2 Arena on November 24th, 2016, which was captured in its entirety.
The Rarities disc adds another ten rare/never released before songs. This incredible selection will be available in multiple formats. In addition to a standard 3-CD audio version, fans can pick up one of the 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 at the O2 Arena show.
