Joe Walsh, Bad Company Tour
Longtime Eagles guitarist Walsh and Bad Company will switch off as headliners for the One Hell of a Night tour. Opening for the veteran classic rock acts will be Bad Company singer Paul Rodgers’ son Steve Rodgers.
“I told Paul, if it’s a long bus ride (from the previous tour stop), I go first!” Walsh told the San Diego Union-Tribune. “I have a huge amount of respect for Paul, of course, and the band and we get along great. Paul and I agreed it would be a hell of an evening of music, one that will be memorable for everyone who comes, and memorable for us, and that’s important in this day and age.”
Rodgers, in his own statement, added, “I had always hoped that we would do something together. And, so, here we are 30 years later finally touring together. It has taken us this long, so I wouldn’t miss this. Unless you want to wait 30 more years for our next tour in 2046!!! There is only one Joe Walsh, he is such a unique person and an uber talented singer, songwriter and musician.”
The One Hell of a Night tour will kick off in Dallas, Texas May 12. It will wrap up July 3 in Nashville, Tenn.
Tickets for the tour go on sale, Saturday, March 12.
