Rock on! In case you missed it Anthrax and Black Label Society to tour together in 2022, fear not as another North American tour leg is booked for early 2023, featuring special guests Exodus also included in the bill.
The trip starts in January. 17 in Boise, Idaho, making four stops in Canada along the way as the bands criss-cross the country before packing back out on the West Coast in Oakland, California, that February. 18. See all dates, cities and venues for the race listed below.
Anthrax have spent most of the year celebrating their 40th anniversary as a group and releasing their XL live album in the past year. This comes as the band continues to work towards a new studio album. Meanwhile, Black Label Society released last Doom Crew Inc. in 2021 and has continued to tour in support of the effort. Exodus also have a 2021 release to support as they mix tunes from their Persona Non Grata album with their other hits.
Anthrax says of the run: “We’re so pumped to be back on the road with Black Label Society. We had such a great time touring with them earlier this year that we’d been talking about doing it again when we were still on. the road together. And having the guys from Exodus on the bill as special guests is sure to make this a tour not to be missed.”
Black Label Society’s Zak Wylde adds, “Anthrax is one of the greatest legendary metal/thrash bands of all time. I’ve been friends with Scotty, Charlie, Frankie and Joey for over 30 years and they’re some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Jon is the best new addition Anthrax could ask for. The Anthrax + Black Label Society & Exodus tour will be one of the best tours ever!!”
Exodus guitarist Gary Holt comments, “Exodus is super excited to announce that we will be touring with Anthrax and Black Label Society. Touring with our longtime friends in Anthrax is always an epic good time, and now we get to tour with BLS and see Zakk and the company. tear it up every night too! It’s gonna be amazing and we’ll be bringing our unique brand of sonic violence to every city! Let the metal roll!”
Tickets for the race will go on sale to the public this Friday (November 4) at 10.00 local time. VIP packages will also be available. Check Anthrax’s website for ticket information.
