Bad Company and Jacksonville, FL southern rockers LYNYRD SKYNYRD have announced a co-headlining tour celebrating 40 years of rocking. The trek will consist of 12 dates which will be boosted with individual headline dates that are yet to be determined.
Bad Company singer Paul Rodgers (FREE, QUEEN) comments: “The Skynyrds and I go back to the 70’s and the days and nights at the Hyatt House on Sunset in LA aka the Riot House. In the 90’s, the band introduced me to my wife Cynthia, and that’s why I am so damned happy and healthy these years.”
Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Johnny Van Zant adds: “Every member of Skynyrd has been fans of Bad Company from the get go. Personally, Paul is one of my favorite rock singers. We have a deep appreciation for Bad Company’s music and look forward to being on the road with them and sharing the stage.”
