PRETORIA, GAUTENG, 26 March 2019 – A night of rock ‘n roll, that took you back to the times of the 80’s where Led Zeppelin and AC/DC ruled the world…sold out BLACK BONE LAGER beer, dancers, creative lights and pyrotechnics, Black Bone Nation surely pulled out all of the stops for their BLACKED OUT international tour kick-off show on 22 March 2019 at Railways Cafe – Centurion, Pretoria.The band has only been playing live for over a year now, and have already punched the South African music scene in the gut with their old school rock sound, with modern influences and stage production concepts, redefining the way club shows are produced and performed.

The 22 March kick-off show propelled the boys into their year-long international BLACKED OUT tour, seeing them travelling throughout South Africa, Europe and the USA, with more dates being added as the band’s presence spreads across the globe.

Zakk Styles, frontman of Black Bone Nation had the following to say; “…the first show was a blast, we double sold out as we had to make more tickets available on the evening for people wanting to watch the show! We had such a great time with everyone, and they made us feel very special…we hope to carry that South African spirit overseas with us during the tour…” 

Now with their very own lager beer, branded “Black Bone Lager” (Which sold out on launch night as well), the band is expanding on its brand identity as a rock ‘n roll freight train, as well as releasing their second studio album ‘Born To Rock’ in late 2019.
