The US touring spectacle Carnival of Madness is set to make its debut appearance on UK shores next week at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena.

Established in 2010, the tour has seen an array of hard rock talent join the parade in years prior, including Alter Bridge, Papa Roach, Evanescence and In This Moment.

Now it’s the UK’s turn in the spotlight with a fresh batch of bands, headlined by Kentucky rockers Black Stone Cherry, who last month headlined Stage Two at Download.

Special guests on the run are Shinedown, who will release their fifth studio album this autumn.

Rounding out the bill are hot property, Halestorm, and opening the evening will be newcomers Highly Suspect.

The show is at Nottingham on Friday, January 29.

Tickets priced £35.28 are available from the box office in person, by calling 0843 373 3000 or online at www.
