We talk to Blackberry Smoke frontman Charlie Starr ahead of the latest six-date UK tour from the Georgia-based southern rock five-piece.
Blackberry Smoke on their upcoming tour
The southern gents preview next year’s new album, as well as old favourites.
This will be Blackberry Smoke’s third visit to the UK in less than a year.
We’re out to make up for lost time. That first show [at London’s Barfly] was so crowded and hot, it felt just like a lot of our earlier gigs in the States.
You’ve been going for a decade. You must have feared you’d never get to play over here?
No, I knew that we would. We’d toured [continental] Europe three times; it was just a case of when our booking agent could bring us to the UK.
