GBH have announced dates for a 2023 US tour this spring, marking the legendary UK punk band’s first stateside outing in five years.
It’s been a while but the UK punk legends GBH tour kicks off a tour of the United States on May 6th in Amityville, New York, and is scheduled through a June 12th show in Charleston, South Carolina. A Live Nation pre-sale begins Wednesday (March 1st) at 10 a.m. local time using the code OPENER via Ticketmaster, with general ticket sales starting Friday (March 3rd). Fans can also pick up tickets via StubHub if shows sell out.
GBH formed in 1978, and still feature three of their classic members — singer Colin Abrahall, guitarist Colin “Jock” Blyth, and bassist Ross Lomas — along with longtime drummer Scott Preece. The band has influenced not only countless punk groups, but also a number of metal acts, including Metallica, Slayer, Bathory, and others.
The band has released 12 studio albums, the most recent being 2017’s Momentum via Tim Armstrong’s Hellcat Records.
According to various venue sites, it appears that the punk bands MDC and Niis will be providing support for most of GBH’s US outing. See the tour dates below, and pick up tickets via Ticketmaster or StubHub
