Kentucky rockers Black Stone Cherry recently graced the shores of the UK to promote the latest album ‘Between the Devil & the Deep Blue Sea’. The band played secret acoustic shows courtesy of Rock Radio, I was lucky enough to catch them up at the Glasgow session, held at the Apollo 23.
Ben, Chris, Jon and John kicked off the night with ‘Blind Man’, a track from 2nd album Folklore & Superstition; a great track to lift the energy in the venue. Followed by a new track ˜In My Blood’ (track 3 on the latest album), now this track is looking to be a fan favourite off the album, it is catchy and has those signature Black Stone Cherry southern rock riffs!The track ‘Lonely Train’, from their first album, was performed with the near majority of the venue singing along with Chris. Despite shouts from the crowd to play tracks ‘Peace is Free’ and ‘Maybe Someday’, Black Stone Cherry ended their short set with the new single ‘White Trash Millionaire’.
The Kentucky boys spent the rest of their time meeting the fans and getting their pictures taken with them. Announcing that it had been too long since Black Stone Cherry had graced the UK shores the band stated the return and likelihood of a tour later in the fall so watch this space!!
