Saturday 26 March 2022
The Kris Barras Band announce their most extensive UK headline tour to date. In March 2022, the band will be
playing 15 dates, calling through Exeter (two shows), Cardiff, Nottingham, Wolverhampton, Bristol,
Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Newcastle, Sheffield, Norwich, Southampton and London. You
can purchase tickets here.
The band were riding a wave of success before the pandemic hit. Now, they are coming out of it like a freight
train. As well as announcing the headline tour for next year, they will be joining the Kentucky heavyweights
Black Stone Cherry on their September 2021 tour; playing 16 dates across the UK beginning on 9th September
and finishing at London's iconic Royal Albert Hall on 29th September. They will also be supporting Thunder at
the SSE Wembley Arena on 22nd May 2022.
Talking about the upcoming tour, Barras says, "Like most artists, I just can't wait to get back out there and play
some shows. I've spent the lockdown period writing and recording a ton of new material, and it's going to be
great to play some of this stuff on our headline tour. Venue-wise, this is our biggest tour to date, and anyone
that has seen the band previously will know that we never bring less than 110% to every show. After being
shut down for so long, I think we will be like caged animals released into the wild! I'm hoping that we should
have some new music released by then, too, so keep yourselves posted."
2019's breakout album 'Light It Up' capped a whirlwind three years where they relentlessly toured across the
UK and mainland Europe, along the way playing with the likes of Black Stone Cherry, Rich Robinson's of The
Black Crowes band The Magpie Salute and Therapy? amongst others, as well as stunning performances at
festivals such as Ramblin' Man Fair and Planet Rockstock. Barras played to 3 million people on BBC Radio 2 –
which caused host Richard Madeley to exclaim, "that's the reason I love doing this show!" and the band also
won the 2019 award for Planet Rock Radio's Best New Band. In 2018 Barras also joined Supersonic Blues
Machine as frontman and lead guitarist alongside an all-star line-up that includes Billy F. Gibbons (ZZ Top),
Steve Lukather (TOTO), Warren Haynes (Gov't Mule), Walter Trout, Eric Gales and more.
Barras kept busy during the lockdown, knuckling down, writing new music, and found time for his popular Box
Room Sessions, playing acoustic versions of his back catalogue and covers suggested by fans, ranging from Foo
Fighters and Guns n Roses to Chris Isaak and Bon Jovi.
