One Hell Of A Night US tour sees Bad Company and Joe Walsh in first road trip together
Bad Company and Joe Walsh have confirmed their first-ever tour together after weeks of speculation.
Paul Rodgers’ band will hit the road with the Eagles man for 25 shows, starting on May 12 in Texas and ending on July 3 in Tennessee. The outfits will take turns headlining.
Rodgers says: “I’d always hoped we would do something together, and so here we are. It’s taken us this long, so I wouldn’t miss this – unless you want to wait 30 more years for our next tour in 2046.”
Walsh adds: “Paul and I agreed it would be a hell of an evening of music, one that will be memorable for everyone who comes, and us. And that’s important in this day and age.”
Tour support comes from Rodgers’ son Steve.
Bad Company this week announced the release of a double-length live album recorded in 1977 and 1979.
