Steve Harris’ British Lion Announces European Tour and Live Album

Steve Harris' British Lion

Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris is taking his band British Lion on a European tour throughout November and December. The trek, which is their most extensive outing to date, will focus on the club circuit while visiting countries they’ve yet to play. It will also include new music from the band.

“It’s been great fun taking British Lion out on the road over the past three years and I’m delighted we have the opportunity to play some more shows in 2016,” Harris told Blabbermouth. “On this tour, we’ll be making our first visits to Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Southern and Northern Ireland, as well as a number of different cities in countries we’ve visited on previous tours. Due to the routing, we’re not able to get to Scandinavia this time around, but will definitely see our fans there next time. We’ve got a really strong show lined up, including plenty of songs not on the [first] British Lion album.”

Harris went on to say that they will be recording sets on the road to contribute to an upcoming live album. The to-be-announced release will be the follow up to their 2012 self-titled debut.
