Rock supergroup head on 'Swan Song' UK tour
Supergroup Bad Company formed in 1973 by members of Free (Paul Rodgers and Simon Kirke), Mott The Hoople (Mick Ralphs) and King Crimson (Boz Burrell). They gave the world hard rock classics such as 'Can't Get Enough', 'Feel Like Makin' Love' and their calling card 'Bad Company'.
Despite multiple lineup changes over the years all four original members are back together for what we can only presume is their final UK shows, which they have dubbed the 'Swan Song' tour, which starts in Leeds on Saturday 15 October, with dates in Cardiff, Nottingham, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Newcastle before finishing at the O2 in London on Saturday 29 Oct.
Vocalist Paul Rodgers stated: '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.'
Old school rock fans are in for a treat as Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi) is teaming up with guitarist Orianthi (Alice Cooper) for their new project RSO as support on all Bad Company dates.
