Steve Harris comments,
“We’re excited to be touring the UK again especially as we’ll be visiting many places we’ve not had a chance to play before. It’s fantastic that we’ve got long-time friends Coney Hatch coming over from Canada to join us. We had great fun when they were our special guests on the British Lion Canadian shows in 2018. And we’re happy to have our old mates Airforce back out on the road with us too. Everyone is really looking forward to this tour and we can’t wait to see everyone.”
BRITISH LION last played live in the UK at this year’s Download Festival to a packed Dogtooth Stage* following a headline pub & club tour of late 2021. Their second album The Burning was released by Warner Music (Explorer1 Music in the US) in January 2020.
