They’ll play at Blossom on June 26.

"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 says in a press release. “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,” adds 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.”

The tour’s press releases promises you can can expect to hear the hits. Walsh will play songs such as “Rocky Mountain Way,” “Walk Away,” “Life’s Been Good To Me So Far,” “Funk 49” and “Life In The Fast Lane.” Bad Company will deliver “Shooting Star,” “Feel Like Makin Love,” “Bad Company,” “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love” and “Rock 'n’ Roll Fantasy.”

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