The original, founding members of BAD COMPANY — Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke — have announced that they will reunite for a series of North American concerts this summer. Tentatively set to begin July 16, the trek will include coast-to-coast dates in the U.S. and Canada throughout the summer, with more shows to be added. BAD COMPANY will also partner exclusively with Abbey Road Live to record and sell live concert CDs onsite at each venue throughout the tour.
Having recently completed its first U.K. tour in over three decades — a sold-out run culminating with a sold-out show at Wembley — BAD COMPANY‘s concerts across the pond were star-studded affairs, attracting the likes of Sting, Robert Plant, Tony Iommi and former bandmate from THE FIRM, Jimmy Page, who proclaimed, “Paul Rodgers has been, and still is by far, one of the finest talents of our musical genre…absolutely brilliant.”
“Our last show, at Wembley, was unreal, truly amazing,” said Rodgers. “I can’t remember a BAD COMPANY gig when everything from sound, lights, fans, music to musicians all peaked at the same show. That has left us all naturally high and primed to play more shows. The upcoming set list will be hit heavy with a few surprises. We have hit our stride.”
