paulrodgersA while back we reported on rumors that a Bad Company tour with Paul Rodgers was in the cards. Well, it seems that rumor has now become a reality.

According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Joe Walsh and Bad Company will co-headline some dates in the summer. The One Hell of a Night tour begins May 12th in Dallas.

About the stint, Rodgers says, “I had always hoped that we would do something together, and so here we are 30 years later finally touring together. 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 has been one subtraction and addition to the tour. Founding guitarist Mick Ralphs has decided not to join the band for the One Hell of a Night Tour. On his decision Ralphs said, ““I’ve decided to sit this upcoming U.S. tour out. The travel required to do these dates is something I’m just not feeling up for at the moment. I’m glad the band found Rich to take my place for this run, I’m sure he’ll be great.”

The “Rich” he’s talking about in the quote is Rich Robinson, formerly of The Black Crowes. In a press release, Robinson has said, ““I’m excited to be joining Bad Company as their special guest on tour this summer. One of my favorite bands growing up was Free. I’ve been a big fan of Paul Rodgers and his work throughout his career – from Bad Company and beyond – and Simon Kirke is one of my all-time favorite drummers. To be able to play with Paul and Simon is such an honor.”
