Black Label Society were in the midst of a late winter / early spring North American tour when they had to postpone the last 12 dates due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, frontman Zakk Wylde and company have rescheduled those shows for August.
After completing half the tour, Black Label Society pulled the plug on the trek beginning March 13th. However, the band was quickly able to map out a new itinerary for the summer, beginning August 8th in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, and wrapping up August 29th in Hartford, Connecticut.
Obituary and Lord Dying, who were supporting the February and March dates, will join Black Label Society on the summer trek, save for two of the shows.
With no touring on the horizon for the next few months, and Wylde also getting additional time off when Ozzy Osbourne canceled his summer North American tour due to health reasons, Black Label Society plan to write and record the follow-up to 2018’s Grimmest Hits.
“I’m going to do some writing, I guess, in April, and [in] May and [then in] June, we’ll [record] and have that one ready to roll,” Wylde recently told Billboard.
