This summer, Anthrax and Black Label Society will bring some of the finest thrash and heavy metal to 24 North American cities when they kick off a five-week tour on Tuesday, July 26 at Van Buren in Phoenix, Arizona, wrapping in Philadelphia at the Fillmore on Sunday, August 28. Both bands will play headline sets. Hatebreed, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Perseverance album, will special guest.
Black Label Society and Anthrax have shared festival stages and one-off shows numerous times, but this marks the very first time these two bands will tour together.
A special Blabbermouth presale will begin on Wednesday, April 20 at 10:00 a.m. EDT and end on Thursday, April 21 at 10:00 p.m. local time. General on-sale will be Friday, April 22 at 10 a.m. local time. Citi is the official card of the Anthrax and Black Label Society tour. Citi card members will have access to presale tickets beginning Monday, April 18, at 12 p.m. ET until Thursday, April 21 at 10 p.m. local time through the Citi Entertainment program.
“Zakk [Wylde, Black Label Society leader] has been a friend and an inspiration to me as a guitar player, songwriter, and beard grower since we met in 1988,” said Anthrax’s Scott Ian.
“We’ve had the privilege to share festival stages with Zakk and BLS around the world, and it’s always been a head-banging mutual admiration society between the two bands. Now we get to share the stage every night on what is easily going to be the heaviest tour of 2022 — the ultimate pounding one-two combination of bands. Oh, and did I mention we’ve got f_king Hatebreed with us as our special guests? Holy crap, it’s going to be the night of 1000 crushing riffs. I can’t wait to see you all on the road.”
