The Winery Dogs announce fall UK tour dates

Trio returns to the area in October

Due to popular demand, The Winery Dogs are returning to The UK in October 2023. The power trio are performing three shows in England this summer as part of their 202III World Tour and has added five more shows for the fall. The newly announced dates start October 3rd in Newcastle and span Glasgow, Manchester and Bristol before wrapping October 8th in Norwich.

The band assures additional October and November European dates are forthcoming.

The group’s extensive tour is currently underway in the US. They’ll head to Latin America for three shows next month before playing a handful of California and Las Vegas dates in May. In June, they’ll play a run of 11 dates through The UK and Europe before returning in the fall.

The power rock trio of vocalist Richie Kotzen, bassist Billy Sheehan and drummer Mike Portnoy released their third studio album, III, last month via the band’s Three Dog Music label with distribution by Burnside Distribution/The Orchard. Following in the footsteps of their first two albums, III was once again self-produced by The Winery Dogs and mixed by longtime band associate Jay Ruston. The album’s first single and video, “Xanadu,” was released in December with “Mad World” following in January.

III is the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed and Billboard-charting album, Hot Streak, which was released October 2, 2015 on Loud & Proud Records via RED, a division of Sony Music Entertainment. After landing in the top five on many of Amazon’s pre-order charts, including No. 1 on the Amazon BestSellers/Hard Rock chart and No. 1 on the Amazon Pre-Orders/Hard Rock Albums charts, it sold 30% more than their 2013 self-titled debut, landing them on various Billboard album charts including No. 2 on Top Current Alternative Albums, No. 5 on Top Current Hard Music and Top Hard Music Albums, No. 6 on Top Current Rock Albums and Album Core/Genre Rock,” No. 15 Top Current Physical Albums, No. 16 Top Current Albums, and No. 30 on the Top 200 Albums chart.
