Bad Company Add Nine More Stops To 40th Anniversary Tour

Bad Company have tacked on an additional nine stops to their upcoming summer tour, which marks the 40th anniversary of the band's founding. The tour will launch on June 15 in Rancho Mirage, California and will wrap up on August 3 in Orillia, Ontario.

Frontman Paul Rodgers said in a press release of the 40th anniversary: "When Mick and I formed the band in the 70's we were amazed at the instant success. It didn't hurt to have Led Zeppelin behind us, and we wrote some decent songs that still resonate. This one is for fans."

Of the 22 concerts, 13 will feature co-headliner Lynyrd Skynyrd, who are also celebrating their 40th anniversary.

DiscLive Network, the global leader in the field of "instant" live content, will be recording and releasing commemorative 40th Anniversary CD sets for the band at each stop along the way. The fully mixed and mastered CD sets will be packaged in high-gloss DigiPaks.
