Brantley Gilbert Announces Rescheduled European Black Out Tour Dates
When Brantley Gilbert postponed his European Black Out Tour dates after November's terrorist attacks in Paris, he promised, "WE WILL BE BACK" -- and now, the singer has announced his rescheduled shows.
Gilbert will resume his European tour on May 5 at Oran Mor in Glasgow, Scotland. He will then play the Academy Two in Manchester, England, on May 6; Birmingham, England's 02 Institute 2 on May 7; and at Shepherd's Bush Empire in London, England, on May 8.
“At a time like that, there are more important things than getting up and rocking out,” Gilbert says in a press release. “We took a moment to pray, regroup, allow people time to grieve. But we said we’d be back ... and we’re coming.”
The country star adds, "This is why I play music: to bring it to the people … to bring them together. We are in this together, and these songs I write are their lives, too. For me to go to places like Germany, England, Scotland -- it makes the world bigger and smaller, and I like that. We’re not so different. People like to rock and be real; that’s what we’re finally getting to do."
Gilbert will begin the North American leg of his Black Out Tour in 2016, on Jan. 28 in Saginaw, Mich. Shows in the U.S. and Canada are currently scheduled through the end of April.
