Black Stone Cherry arrived in Australia hot on the heels of their tour down under earlier this year with Steel Panther, where they wowed full houses early on. That was the band’s maiden voyage down under and they returned ASAP to cement their place in Australian audiences’ hearts.
Australian crowd-favourites blues-rock legends CHASE THE SUN joined the tour as special guest support – and they themselves will have a new album out in time for this good-times, rough-and-tumble rock tour.
Drummer for the Southern-Rock outfit, John Fred Young , is excited for the speedy return to the land down under. “We had such a kick-ass time in Australia with Steel Panther, that we just had to back it up straight away. There’s not many places in the world where we have had as much fun playing to such receptive audiences and we met a whole bunch of people that we just want to get back there to see you all again. We can’t wait.”
The band’s many singles and albums have inspired rock radio success in the UK and US, including “White Trash Millionaire” and “Please Come In”; all driven by the vocal charisma and lead guitar shred of Chris Robertson , the dynamic crunch of guitarist Ben Wells , the rhythmic pulse of bassist Jon Lawhon and the always-in-the-pocket groove of drummer John Fred Young.
