Blackmore's Night has announced their first U.S. tour dates of 2018. The medieval folk-rock duo, fronted by iconic British guitar whiz Ritchie Blackmore and multi-talented wife Candice Night, have announced several shows to run throughout July.
The ex-Deep Purple star made the announcement on April 23 via Facebook and other social media. Blackmore dropped the news on the heels of wrapping up a mini-tour of European with Rainbow on April 20 in Prague, Czech Republic.
The U.S. trek will launch July 19 in Glenside, Pennsylvania, at Keswick Theatre. The summer trek will focus primarily along the East Coast with stops in Huntington, N.Y. and Washington, before wrapping up July 29 in Montclair, N.J. at The Wellmont.

Blackmore's Night celebrated their 20th-anniversary last year with the release of the compilation To The Moon And Back: 20 Years And Beyond, which dropped Aug. 27, 2017 via Minstrel Hall Music. The two-disc set features re-recorded favorites plus three news songs and is available here in CD, digital and streaming formats.
The husband-wife team has been on hiatus since wrapping up their 20th-anniversary tour on Oct. 7 in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, allowing Blackmore to re-team with his current line up of Rainbow. Along with their recent European show, the veteran metal band recently released “Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow: Memories In Rock II,” which is available here in 2CD+DVD, digital, vinyl formats via Minstrel Hall Music.
