After all the buzz and excitement from their Download Festival show which pulled in an absolutely huge crowd in direct support of Aerosmith on the Sunday night, Alter Bridge continue to ride their growing wave of momentum by announcing two massive gigs at The Royal Albert Hall this October.

Both of these shows will see the band joined by the Parallax Orchestra (a 52-piece symphony orchestra conducted by Simon Dobson) so needless to say this will be one of the major music events of the year.

Full list of dates:

2nd October - RAH
3rd October - RAH

Tickets go on general sale this Friday at 10am with those on O2 getting access to priority tickets from Wednesday 14th. Please ensure you go via the official ticket outlets when making your purchase.

Don't forget the band are also set to release a CD/DVD set covering their gig at the O2 Arena in November last year. Live at The O2 Arena + Rarities is out on 8th September via Napalm Records. Check out the trailer below:
