Joe Walsh confirmed additional tour dates that will directly follow up his co-headline tour with Bad Company. The “Walsh Toor 2016” will kick off in Ohio, birthplace of the James Gang, with dates in West Virginia, up and down the East Coast, as far north as Maine and down to South Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee. Special guests JD & the Straight Shot will be opening.

Walsh will be joined by his Barnstorm bandmate Joe Vitale on drums as well as Chad Cromwell, Waddy Wachtel on guitar, Larry Young on bass, Jimmy Wallace on keyboards and DJ Clayton Janes. Singers Leslie Fuller, Lois Mahalia, Windy Wagner and Rickey Washington will provide background vocals.

“I decided to round up great players that I’ve played with in the past, like Joe, Waddy, Chad and Ricky. These guys know my music and I’m very comfortable playing with them. I think this band is the best I’ve had in a long time. I didn’t feel that the One Hell of a Night Tour should be the end based on how we are all playing.”

Drawing from an extensive catalog of hits throughout his four-decade career, the set list will include “Rocky Mountain Way”, “Walk Away”, “Life’s Been Good To Me So Far”, “Funk 49”, “Life In The Fast Lane”, “In The City”, “Over and Over”, “Life of Illusion”, “Turn To Stone”, “Ordinary Average Guy”, “Analog Man” and more.

Walsh has been busy and recently contributed an original song, “No Man’s Land” to the documentary, Citizen Soldier, about an Oklahoma National Guard unit which was called up to active duty and fought heroically in Afghanistan. Walsh has also been working with Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and original James Gang guitarist Glenn Schwartz.

    As much as I would love to go, I can't bring myself to support a band that includes Waddy Wachtel. His past indiscretions with child porn are inexcusable. Although it's been several years since the issue, some things are just not forgivable. I can't help pay his salary. Come on Joe! You're better than this!

    This announcement made me happy to see Alabama mentioned, however, there is not a single ALABAMA DATE?!?!? You just driving through Alabama or something on your way from Charleston to Memphis?

    I won the Joe Walsh Analogman contest an few years again. I'm looking forward to seeing your show in Lancaster, PA this year at the American Music Theater. The AMT has got great sound and your band should like it! I'll planning to buy meet and greet tickets!
