Dirty Honey love Europe so much they are back in two months time

Dirty Honey will be back in Europe in 2023. Their headline tour kicks off in Norwich on 21 January 2023, closing in Southampton on 31 January 2023. The band then head into mainland Europe until March.

It was a busy year for Dirty Honey, releasing their Dirty Honey EP/LP and touring throughout Europe through June and July 2022. They had slots with Guns’ N’ Roses, KISS and Rival Sons alongside festival dates and their own headline shows.

The first UK gig was this year’s Download. “We knew it was gonna be a special gig for us because of the hype,” Marc LaBelle told MetalTalk. “But we couldn’t have expected the welcome we received. There were 7,000 people there at 11 a.m. It was crazy.”

Dirty Honey rolled into the UEA as part of their first European dates, and Norwich loved the band. MetalTalk’s Paul Monkhouse said, “you can bet that they’re headed towards the arenas, their name soon to be twenty feet high on billboards and marquees.”

“There were definitely some Dirty Honey fans already here at the start of the night that were really excited to see us,” Marc LaBelle told MetalTalk. “Whenever you look out, and you see some of your own t-shirts at a support slot gig, you know that’s obviously very flattering. But we’re out here to prove ourselves and to prove that the state of rock ‘n’ roll is alive and well, especially in America.”

Their self-titled debut album was released last year, which MetalTalk described as “a beautiful compendium of thumping enraged hard rock stompers and melancholic ballads.”

The future of proper rock is here, and they’re wearing battered hats and sunglasses.
