Following on from a successful run of dates as support to STIFF LITTLE FINGERS earlier in the year, RICKY WARWICK and his band THE FIGHTING HEARTS have announced their first ever headlining tour.
Touring in support of the two albums released in February through Nuclear Blast - When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues) and Hearts on Trees - the ALMIGHTY and BLACK STAR RIDERS frontman is joined in the band by bassist Robbie Crane (Black Star Riders), guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite (THE MISSION, PETER MURPHY) and drummer Gary Sullivan.
Supporting on the tour are rejuvenated Bristol punks VICE SQUAD. Ricky comments: "We can't wait to get back out there and play a full length set and I am delighted that my old friends Vice Squad will be special guests. I've been a fan of Beki and the boys since their debut album No Cause For Concern. It's gonna be a hell of an evening."
