HOT on the heels of their special guest slot to Guns n' Roses at Download Festival, Black Stone Cherry have announced a UK headline tour for this December, which takes in Newcastle.

The Kentucky band says: "As many people know, the UK holds a special place in the hearts of Black Stone Cherry. The culture, the history, the music, and most importantly the fans.

"We’ll be turning up the heat across eight different arenas and we plan to bring a musical experience that we hope inspires you as much as you all inspire us. Joining us on this tour are our buddies in The Cadillac Three and Monster Truck. So, needless to say it’s gonna be a southern fried, rock n' roll revival."
