    BAD COMPANY featuring PAUL RODGERS, MICK RALPHS & SIMON KIRKE ANNOUNCES 10 EXCLUSIVE SUMMER CONCERT TOUR DATES FOR 2009
    NEW “BAD COMPANY – HARD ROCK LIVE” DVD AVAILABLE THIS SUMMER!

    Los Angeles, CA – March 30, 2009 – The original members of Bad Company have announced they will reunite for a series of 10 exclusive concerts in the U.S. this summer. The opening show will take place at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, FL on June 17 with select dates on the tour featuring The Doobie Brothers. Previously, founding members Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke (original member Boz Burrell passed away in 2006) performed a one-off concert at the very same venue on August 8, 2008, recording a live concert DVD before a sold-out crowd. The DVD, titled “Bad Company – Hard Rock Live” will be available exclusively at shows during the concert run and is tentatively set for official release this summer, August 8, via Image Entertainment. Prior to their one performance in 2008, the band had not performed together in nearly a decade.

    Rodgers, celebrating over four decades as a writing and recording artist (Free, Bad Company, The Firm, Queen + Paul Rodgers), released his debut solo DVD “Live in Glasgow,” which would go on to chart #1 and become certified Gold in Canada, as well as chart # 3 in the US and # 4 in the UK. Rodgers also released a new studio album titled “The Cosmos Rocks” with Queen + Paul Rodgers and capped 2008 with a sold-out Q+PR world tour. Most recently, Rolling Stone named Rodgers one of the “Top 100 Singers of All Time” and England’s Planet Rock Radio fan poll placed him at #3 on their “Greatest Voices of Rock” list. “These dates are to thank the fans for keeping the music alive,” said Rodgers. “I invited my friends The Doobie Brothers because I’ve always loved their music and them as people.”

    “It's great to be back with Paul and Simon,” said Ralphs. “We made great music together and had the time of our lives doing it. I'm really looking forward to getting back out there this summer.” Ralphs has announced plans to participate in five reunion shows with 70s rock band Mott the Hoople at the Hammersmith Apollo in London this October.

    “We had such a ball playing together again that we have decided to do some selective shows this summer,” said Kirke. “We’re also looking forward to the release of our live DVD.”

    Bad Company’s multi-platinum hits such as “Can’t Get Enough,” “Feel Like Makin Love,” “Rock Steady,” “Movin’ On,” “Shooting Star,” “Rock & Roll Fantasy” and “Bad Company” helped propel them to the forefront of the 70s arena rock movement. Rodgers’ concept to write a song titled the same as the bands’ name and album was a first. To this day, the multi-platinum Bad Co. album arguably remains one of the most accomplished debuts in rock history. Throughout the 70s Rodgers’ and Ralphs’ songwriting continued to yield hit after hit including “Seagull,” “Run with the Pack,” and “Burnin’ Sky,” making Bad Company one of the biggest concert attractions of the decade. The group’s multi-platinum award-winning greatest hits set 10 from 6 has become a record collection staple.

    That'll be a great time. Bad Company is an incredible band, and that debut album is a joy.

    I saw Simon Kirke come out from behind the drum kit and perform "Shooting Star" on acoustic guitar with 5,000 people singing along, during the "Holy Water" era. Stunning performance, and who knew the drummer could take over the show like that?

    Not a big Doobie Brothers fan and could really care less for that part of it, but definitely looking forward to hearing Paul Rodgers belt out the classics. I kind of wish it was just him doing a solo tour so we could maybe hear a variety of tunage. Free, The Firm and other solo material.

    I remember getting the notice about them playing at the Hard Rock down in Hollywood, but just couldn't bring myself to drop the coin.

    There really isn't a whole lot being offered this year that I am interested in seeing. At least not in my area. Lou Gramm will be in town next month and I
    thought about checking that out. Foreigner was the first band I ever saw live (Foreigner 4 tour).

    I hear ya, it seems as though NE Florida is in a black hole, as we're lucky to get what we do. I'd probably hit more of the shows that require more of a drive if the groups weren't getting as much money as they are for shows these days....makes me feel like I'm getting kicked in the nuts.

    I really like Bad Company. I like all their music. Problem is I came up in the late 80's and early 90's and I really liked the stuff they did with Brian Howe(Smoke Without a Fire, How Bout That, If You Needed Somebody, Holy Water) along with all the classic 70's and early 80's. Just wish they would play some of Howe stuff, but I don't think they have before with Paul and that probably won't change. Kinda like the situation with Van Halen.

    I would so love to see Bad Co and the Doobies. In my opinion, Paul Rodgers has one of the best voices in rock!

    Bad Company rocks. I have the first six albums with Paul Rodgers, I've never heard anything post Rodgers though.

    What is it with the classic six pack before a change of singer??
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    Absolutely LOVE the Bad Co.

    And the BEST part about being a 21st Century Bad Co. fan is SCOTLAND PA.

    If you don't know what I'm talking about, check into it...it may take a little work to achieve this particular slice of heaven, but it is WELL worth it...period.

    Bad Company cover by Five Finger Death Punch.

    Not as good as the original version. To me the singer voice sounds like the singer in the Crash Test Dummies.

    Bad Co w/Paul Rodgers is supposed to be coming to the Hard Rock Casino in Tulsa. Count me there!
