Black Star Riders Star Reveals Band's Pre-Concert Rituals

(Classic Rock) Black Star Riders guitarist Damon Johnson is sharing the band's pre-show rituals ahead of a UK tour next month. Currently on the road playing shows across Europe in support of second album The Killer Instinct, the guitarist gives fans a sneak peek of what happens before they hit the stage.

Johnson says: "We have a couple of rituals. We definitely like to raise a toast before we leave the dressing room. We're pretty tight as a group of friends, so generally right before we go up the stairs to hit the stage we'll all hug each other and say, 'hey man, have a great show.'

"It's just a moment to express some gratitude that we're getting to do this, we've come this far and we're doing all right. It's good to be in a band with guys that you enjoy their company and being around as much as we are."

Black Star Riders will join Def Leppard and Whitesnake for a 10-date UK tour next month and will perform two headline shows of their own - December 11 at London's Shepherds Bush Empire and December 17 at The Wulfrun in Wolverhampton. Read more here.
