Joe Walsh & Bad Company Announce ‘One Hell Of A Night’ Co-Headlining North American Tour

Posted Mar 3 2016 by User

25 Shows Kicking Off On May 9th In Dallas, TX 

Joe Walsh and Bad Company (Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs, Simon Kirke) announce their ‘One Hell Of A Night’ tour which begins in Dallas, Texas on May 12 and ends in Nashville TN on July 3rd. As co-headliners they will rotate the headlining spot each show. As for who will headline in what city Walsh playfully quipped: “I told Paul, if it’s a long bus ride I go first!”

"I had always hoped that we would do something together and so here we are 30 years later finally touring together, Bad Company lead singer Paul Rodgers commented. “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."

“I have a huge amount of respect for Paul of course and the band and we get along great,” added Walsh. “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.”

“I’ve loved Joe Walsh since I first heard the James Gang many years ago, looking forward to playing with him again!” remarked Bad Company guitarist Mick Ralphs.

"Getting back on stage with Mick and Paul is always a thrill for me,” added Bad Company drummer Simon Kirke. “And knowing that I get to see Joe Walsh every night makes it that much better..."

The tour will also include a special VIP ticket package for sale. This is something both co-headliners are really excited about. “We wanted to open it up, meet our fans and give back something special to as many people as possible who have been supporting both our bands all these years,” said Walsh.

As for set lists this really will be “One Hell Of A Night” and just to name a few you of course you can expect songs like: “Rocky Mountain Way,” “Walk Away,” “Life’s Been Good To Me So Far,” “Funk 49,” “Life In The Fast Lane,” from Joe and “Shooting Star,” “Feel Like Makin Love,” “Bad Company,” “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love,” “Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy,” from Bad Company plus many more.

Performing with Joe Walsh will be some of his backing band members from his record-setting solo Walsh Tour 2015, including Joe Vitale, his Barnstorm bandmate on drums and adding Chad Cromwell on drums; Waddy Wachtel on guitar; Larry Young on bass and Jimmy Wallace on keyboards. Leslie Fuller, Connie Jackson, Windy Wagner and Rickey Washington will be background singers and Clayton Janes on samples.

British singer, songwriter and recording artist Steve Rodgers will open each show acoustically, playing original songs from his new album.

Bad Company will be making some announcements in the coming weeks about several new projects they have in the works including a classic live album release.

    I have been hoping to see you in concert again (I saw you with the Eagles in Concord, CA in 2003 - the best concert I could have ever imagined.. I so wish I could see this upcoming show at the Concord Pavilion, but sadly, funds have gotten too low, because of my meds...but I definitely would if I could. I know you'll put on an excellent show. I love your 2012 cd. I play it quite often, Awesome lyrics. I also love your older tunes as well. ...When I was a dj at my high school radio station in 1979-1980, I played a lot of your solo stuff, along with the Eagles and others. Thanks for sharing your gift of music. Being a musician, I know how awesome it is to make people happy when you play for them. Much peace to you...and my deepest condolences about fellow Eagle, Glenn Frey. To say it was a shock is an understatement. Take care!

    I know it says if you are a fan club member you can purchase tickets before the general public but, how do you do that? Should we log into your website, and be able to buy them from there? or do we have to go to another site to buy them? And how do you find out the prices of the tickets, VIP packages and availability? Please can someone get back to me, I really really don't want to miss out on this opportunity. Thanks !
