Hard rock outfit Black Label Society have extended their 2018 tour campaign with 23 more shows now scheduled to take them across North America throughout the summer months. The popular rock band revealed their next batch of concerts earlier this week, which are scheduled to pick up at the Cadott Rock Fest in Wisconsin on July 14 and continue for a month before coming to an end with a show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, N.J. on Aug. 11. The newly revealed concerts will look to pick up right where the band leaves off on their current spring tour across Europe, which is scheduled to run until early April.
The band, which notably includes Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde, celebrated the release of their 10th studio album this past January with Grimmest Hits. The loud quartet had toured North America throughout the fall and into the new year, with their winter leg wrapping up just recently with a show at Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre back on Feb. 27. For their upcoming return to the States and Canada this summer, the band will once again be joined on select dates by support acts Corrosion Of Conformity, EyeHateGod and Telekinetic Yeti. Fans can reference the band’s social media post below for nightly lineup details throughout the tour.
Contrary to its unusually dark title, Grimmest Hits is not a compilation album from the veteran rock band, which formed back in the late 1990s.
"People ask me, 'Grimmest Hits, is this a greatest hits record?' I go, no, in order for it to be a greatest hits record, you've got to have hits. We don't have any of those," Wylde jokingly admitted in a recent interview. Wylde will also be part of Ozzy’s band when the Prince of Darkness heads out on his upcoming farewell tour starting with a run of South American and European dates this spring and early summer. Ozzy's overseas leg will come to an end just before the start of Black Label Society’s tour, so Wylde’s electrifying finger-work should be all warmed up and ready to rock by the time the band starts their mid-summer run.
Tickets for select shows will be going on sale starting this Friday, March 16, and can be purchased by clicking here.
