Former THE ALMIGHTY frontman Ricky Warwick will be opening for Bob Dylan at Stormont Castle, Northern Ireland on June 26.
Commented Ricky: "This is unbelievable to be sharing the same stage with the great man, a mile from where I was born and spent the first fifteen years of my life, the venue is also breathtaking, (Stormount is where the Northern Irish Government sit....when they're not arguing, an amazing building in beautiful grounds). To be sharing a stage with Bob Dylan and 3 weeks earlier be on the same bill as METALLICA, I am blessed!"
In other news, Warwick will be headlining the "Lonesome Highway Night", a "cool alternative country club" run by the legendary Steve Avrill (from seminal Irish punk band THE RADIATORS FROM SPACE) at the Holiday Inn on Pearse Street, Dublin on May 11.
