Runaway Tours announces rock icon Joe Walsh as the latest addition to its incredible 2017 calendar of exclusive fan experiences. With a goal to “superserve the superfan,” each Runaway Tours event offers a once-in-a-lifetime vacation package combining intimate concert performances and artist meet and greets with unique destinations.
The newest three-day event takes place on Saturday, May 6, Sunday, May 7 and Monday, May 8 at the newly renovated Graceland in Memphis, TN. In addition to a private acoustic storytellers performance, Q&A and special photo opportunity with Joe Walsh, the weekend also includes welcome and after parties, a tour of Elvis Presley’s Graceland and accommodations at the brand-new Guest House at Graceland hotel. The hotel recently opened in October 2016, while a new 200,000-square-foot entertainment complex across the street from the famous Graceland mansion was unveiled in March, offering attendees one of the first chances to enjoy the new attractions.
A MESSAGE FROM JOE WALSH:
"This is something I've always wanted to do: Take an evening, invite an audience and just be me. What you can expect is me playing music, answering almost all questions anyone would ask (except the ones that may incriminate me), a big screen power point presentation put together and narrated by me, guitar shop talk, slide guitar 101, true stories of road craziness and a discussion of how to destroy hotel rooms and of course playing more music. I’m particularly excited to talk about my Elvis experiences—what he meant to me and what I meant to him. We’ll conclude with a Town Hall Meeting, including a strategy and platform discussion for my candidacy to run for President of the United States in 2020 and sing ‘God Bless America’ or something else (Elvis would want that).”
“This is unlike any VIP experience you may have heard of or participated in,“ adds Runaway Tours President Matt Bongiovi. “We bring together some of the biggest names in entertainment along with their most loyal fans for unforgettable memories in some of the world’s most unique destinations.”

HOUSE OF BLUES WELCOMES: JOE WALSH
A SERIES OF INTIMATE SHOWS AT HOUSE OF BLUES LAS VEGAS
Shows run select dates Jan. 11 – 21, 2017
Best known for his powerful guitar licks the legendary Joe Walsh maintains a legion of fans around the world with huge success over the past four decades as a bona fide solo artist, and as a member of the Eagles and James Gang. The multi-GRAMMY Award winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee hits include “Funk #49,” “Walk Away,” “Life’s Been Good,” “Rocky Mountain Way,” “Life in the Fast Lane” “In The City,” “Ordinary Average Guy” and “Analog Man,” just to name a few.
On his most recent solo ‘Walsh Toor,” Joe has said his current band is “the best band I’ve played with in a long time” and Walsh is clearly at the top of his game, his playing is transcendent and he is more comfortable than ever as a performer. His shows spotlight songs from throughout his career and pack in his hits alongside fan favorites like “Turn To Stone,” “Mothers Says” and “The Bomber.” A recent review in the Charleston Gazette Mail touted, “..what a privilege it is to see a rock and roll great like Joe Walsh in such an intimate setting….a well spent and memorable evening” and Nepa Scene raved, “Joe Walsh jokes and shreds – there is always a good bit of comedy at a Joe Walsh concert but don’t let that fool you – when it comes to playing guitar, he’s dead serious and he’s a monster.” This will be a show Las Vegas fans won’t want to miss.
