Black Star Riders will also begin working on a new studio album later this year. The follow up to 2013's "All Hell Breaks Loose" will be produced by Joe Elliott and Ronan McHugh.

On the new record, Ricky Warwick said: “Joe and myself have been best friends for years and as fans of the first BSR record, it was only natural to have Joe and Ronan work with us on the follow up.

"Joe & Ronan did a great job on the Thin Lizzy reissues a couple of years ago with Scott, so its great to have the dream team back together. We are very excited about what we can achieve with the new record and its great to play back in the UK again just before we head into the studio”

Support on all dates comes from the emerging Bristol-based band Tax The Heat, who said: "We're extremely excited to be supporting such a great band. We're all big fans of BSR and Thin Lizzy, so it's a great opportunity!"
