Bad Company and Lynyrd Skynyrd Announce Tour

skynyrdBad Company and Lynyrd Skynyrd have announced a co-headline tour that takes the bands coast-to-coast for 12 dates.  Both bands celebrate significant 40th anniversaries in 2013, with Lynyrd Skynyrd having released their debut album on August 13, 1973 and Bad Company being formed that same year.  While the pair have shared the stage and Paul Rodgers has toured with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company and Skynyrd have never toured as co-headliners together.

Paul Rodgers reveals, “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 offers, “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.”

Special guests and Kentucky-bred hard rockers, Black Stone Cherry, will be kicking things off on The 40 Tour.  Their music has been described as Southern-fried hard rock about everything from being proud of where you come from and true to who you are.
