Los Angeles-based rockers Dirty Honey, led by lead singer Marc LaBelle of Niskayuna, will tour Europe this summer for 28 concerts supporting band Rival Sons, and opening several shows for Guns N’ Roses and KISS, it was announced this week.
The tour coincides with their 14-track debut album release, “Dirty Honey EP/LP,” set for May 20.
Confirmed dates have the band opening their European tour in Malmo, Sweden, on June 6.
“It’s an honor to finally bring our music across the Atlantic. I’ve always thought we’d be well-received in the UK and Europe, and it just felt right to release both the EP and LP together after having had to wait so long to get there,” LaBelle told All Music Magazine.
The band’s first single from the album will be “When I’m Gone.” which was the first-ever track from an unsigned band to reach the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart.
Dirty Honey will open for Guns N’ Roses on June 20 in Warsaw, Poland; July 8, in Munich, Germany; July 10, in Milan, Italy; July 12, in Bologna, Italy; and July 15, in Hanover, Germany. They will support Rival Sons on other shows.
They will open for KISS on July 9 in Zagreb, Croatia, and July 14 in Budapest, Hungary.
Dirty Honey performed at SPAC last Sept. 14, opening for Black Crowes.
