Here’s a tour we’d love to see in Victoria. We’ve seen both acts perform in Esquimalt in past years and both were phenomenal concerts.

Bad Company and Joe Walsh have announced plans for a 25-date co-headlinining tour this summer. So far, the closest gig to Vancouver Island is in California.

The tour begins May 12 In Dallas under the banner One Hell of a Night, with the acts rotating the headlining slot. In the press release announcing the shows, Walsh joked that he told Bad Company singer Paul Rodgers, “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, says Rodgers, who refers to Walsh as “a unique person and an uber-talented singer, songwriter and musician” and says, “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.”

Fingers crossed Walsh and Bad Co. add more dates along the way. Read more about the tour via Ultimate Classic Rock online.
