Alter Bridge Announce Tour with Black Stone Cherry and Saint Asonia

0

As loud as I’ve been shouting from the pointy spired rooftop of The MetalSucks Mansion for years that Alter Bridge are friggin’ great, a national treasure that metalheads ought to appreciate despite the fact that the band plays hard rock, I’ve somehow yet to catch the band live. It’s just one of those things where I’ve always got a conflict or I’m out of town whenever they roll through.

And I’m sad to report that trend will most likely continue on their recently announced tour with Black Stone Cherry and Saint Asonia. It’s not that I don’t like either of those bands (which I don’t), but the Long Island and New Jersey venues the tour hits are both mentally far from Brooklyn, even if they’re only an hour’s drive. New Yorker mentality, if I can’t get there on the subway = I’m probably not going. I’m a lazy piece of shit fan… sorry! Much love to Myles and Mark, though.

However! You should go. So I’ll drop those dates, which serve to connect a handful of festival appearances, below. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 21 at 10am local time with pre-sales beginning today (Wednesday, February 19). You can keep an eye on tickets here. Be sure to @ me on Twitter from the show and tell me why I’m a fool for refusing to get in the car.
