Heading up the Carnival... invasion on the other side of the pond will be Kentucky rockers, BLACK STONE CHERRY, who announce this news as they ready to headline Stage Two at this year’s Download Festival.

BLACK STONE CHERRY embrace returning to The UK once again, commenting “We are beyond excited and honoured to return to the UK to headline the UK’s first ever Carnival Of Madness Tour! The UK is a very special place for us, and to be able to return in this way after our first arena tour in 2014 is a testament to where our fans have taken us. We don't take it for granted! With HIGHLY SUSPECT, HALESTORM and SHINEDOWN rounding out this incredible bill, you will for sure get your ass kicked like never before! Seriously... we're comin’ for ya! Much love from your favorite Kentucky gentlemen!”

It’s a tour near and dear to our hearts in The US, and we can’t wait to share the stage with our close mates from BLACK STONE CHERRY, HALESTORM and HIGHLY SUSPECT! It’s going to be one hell of a show!”

It's an outlet for creativity and energy, something both bands and fans can do together! We've enjoyed being a part of this ride for many years, and are thrilled to be coming over alongside our friends in SHINEDOWN, HIGHLY SUSPECT and BLACK STONE CHERRY. Carnival… will continue raising the bar in 2016 in The UK! Let's make 'rock show' a verb!"
