Guitar icon Zakk Wylde, leader of BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, has announced An "Evening With Zakk Wylde", a solo 13-city tour across Canada featuring intimate versions of some of the band's most popular songs, as well as songs from Wylde's best-selling solo album Book of Shadows and Southern rock band PRIDE & GLORY.

"This is a special Thank You to the Canadian fans for making "Ain't No Sunshine" top 20 - Top 20 people!" said Wylde. "I love Canada! They always welcome BLS and are so supportive. To do a more intimate, stripped down show, especially in cities where you're so embraced - is just the ultimate. You can take a song that you've played thousands of times, rearrange it and suddenly its something totally fresh and new. Acoustically, the songs are just as powerful and heartfelt. Even transposing them and performing them on piano, they are no less raw and familiar."

Zakk also has a special message to his Canadian fans: "Thanks to the Canadian chapter of the almighty Black Label for the success of Unblackened and the single, "Ainít No Sunshine"!!! I am looking forward to an special evening with our Canadian family."

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY have established themselves at the forefront of Heavy Metal with a series of hard riffing and hugely successful albums alongside worldwide tours that have cemented their reputation as one of the most powerful live bands of their generation. On September 23, 2013, the band released the 2-CD set Unblackened, finding BLACK LABEL SOCIETY in a mellower mood in a performance taped at Club Nokia in Los Angeles earlier this year. The concert showcases the band's songs with a greater use of acoustic instruments but without losing any of their power and intensity. Zakk Wylde leads from the front as always, performing here on both guitar and piano and demonstrating the subtler side of his music alongside the blistering solos that his fans know and love.

For over 20 years he served as Ozzy Osbourneís guitarist, a collaboration that produced a string of multi-platinum albums, including Osbourneís biggest selling album No More Tears (Wylde wrote all of the music) and Ozzmosis. He has won nearly every guitar award imaginable, and is a major influence on a new battalion of rock guitarists currently popular today.

The last few years have seen Wyldeís life radically altered. Doctors recently discovered blood clots in his leg. "The doc was like, 'you have, what, a drink a day? Six? 12? A case?' Iím like, 'Itís a liquid diet,'" says Wylde, laughing. "I mean, Iíd drink beer while lifting weights. Thatís BLACK LABEL SOCIETY style for you right there. But the doc told me if I kept this up, Iíd be dead by the time I was 50. So I stopped drinking. No big deal."
