Whelan’s Upstairs

“…You’re unlikely to hear a better straight ahead rock ‘n’ roll record this year. You can trace the low slung guitars of Monday Club and Roll The Dice back to The Faces and Exile-era Stones…” 7/10 – CLASSIC ROCK

“ ‘Shooting The Breeze’ is simply masterful and gives all those new rough blues rockers a run for their money”. 10/10 Album Of The Month – POWERPLAY

“Blackwater Conspiracy stand out, not because what they do is necessarily new, but because they’re supremely good at it”. 4/5 – PLANET ROCK

Northern Ireland’s Blackwater Conspiracy have announced rescheduled dates for their biggest UK and Ireland tour in September and October with new headline shows added in Leeds, Sheffield and Swansea. The now 18-date trek will once again begin in Liverpool on September 08 and ends in familiar territory at Whelan’s, Dublin on October 24. Original tickets for headline shows remain fully valid.

Joining them across the mainland UK will be blues-infused modern / new wave of rock’n’rollers These Wicked Rivers, while at home they’ll be joined by The Davy K Project in Belfast and Status Quo’s Richie Malone and his All-Star Band in Dublin.

Titled the ‘Love & Revolution Tour 2021’ in reference to their critically acclaimed second studio album release this past February, Two Tails & The Dirty Truth of Love & Revolution’ which landed at No.3 on The Official UK Rock & Metal Charts and No. 2 on The Official Independent Album Breakers Charts.

Frontman Phil Conolane adds “We’re disappointed to announce, but it’s not unexpected, we will not be visiting our friends in England, Scotland, Wales and here at home in April, May and June when we had hoped. However we will see you all in September hopefully and a particular new Hello to those of you in Leeds and Swansea. We’ve just added new shows there.” Adding further “Sadly this means we won’t be a part of Heretic Fest in Sheffield this May but we’ll play a full headline show at The Corporation in September to make up for it“.
