ALTER BRIDGE recently announced its special Royal Albert Hall shows for early October, which sold out extremely fast, followed by additional U.K. and Ireland dates. Due to the great demand to get them back to Europe's mainland, the band now can proudly announce "The Last Hero" tour all across Europe. Starting in Paris at the Elysee Montmartre, the trek leads ALTER BRIDGE from France to the Netherlands, from Germany over Austria to Poland, Hungary, Switzerland all the way down to Spain and Portugal, where they also ended their last tour just a couple of days ago.
In case you saw ALTER BRIDGE live on this past tour or at any of the summer festivals, the band's upcoming tour will see them playing a totally different set.

ALTER BRIDGE will release a new live album and rarities collection, "Live At The O2 Arena + Rarities", on September 8 via Napalm Records.
One of the biggest moments of the band's career was the monumental show at London's famous O2 Arena on November 26, 2016. That landmark performance was captured in its entirety. The two-CD, nineteen-track recording documents what an enormous presence ALTER BRIDGE have become on concert stages around the world.
In addition, this latest release includes an exclusive full-length rarities CD sure to excite fans everywhere. The disc features the never-before-released tracks "Cruel Sun" and "Solace" that were recorded during the "One Day Remains" sessions, as well as the song "Breathe" from the same time which has only ever been available as a U.S. retail exclusive via Best Buy. These tracks join seven other songs that have only been released in Japan until this collection.
This selection of ALTER BRIDGE gems will be released in multiple formats. In addition to a standard three-CD audio version, fans can also pick up one of the limited deluxe editions (including a four-LP set and a CD/DVD Earbook) which also include an exclusive ALTER BRIDGE documentary featuring extensive interviews with the band, their crew, and family, giving an amazing glimpse behind the scenes of this legendary show at London's O2 Arena.
