Multi-million-selling rock super-group Bad Company will return to the UK for their first tour in six years in October. Original Bad Company members Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke will take their thrilling live show to eight UK cities including Leeds, Cardiff, Nottingham, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle and London.
Bad Company burst onto the rock’n’roll scene in 1973, and were immediately dubbed a super-group by fans and press alike having incorporated musicians from Free (Rodgers and Kirke), Mott The Hoople (Ralphs) and King Crimson (Burrell). They continue to live up to that hype and are one of the most successful touring bands of today.
“With mean riffs that took no prisoners, smouldering grooves and THE voice of all British voices, these guys brought home a special unique angle to the scene. I’m excited to see them make their way back on the road, town to town.”
Special guests Richie Sambora + Orianthi (RSO) will open every show along with Steve Rodgers or Jasmine Rodgers as the first act.
“Returning to the UK with Bad Company where it all began 40 plus years ago is full circle for the band and the fans. It’s always a pleasure to play in the UK.”
