BRITISH LION would like to thank their agent for the exceptional work in putting together this tour at such short notice and are delighted that they will be able to play some shows this year.

British Lion withdraw from UK tour with The Darkness

Due to circumstances beyond our control British Lion are really sad and disappointed to announce that we will not be able to participate in the tour with The Darkness. Very recently we received their own protocols that are not Government protocols which are completely unacceptable to us. Therefore, we have no alternative but to withdraw from the tour.
