Richie Sambora To Honor Les Paul

Richie Sambora has announced that he will be celebrating what would have been Les Paul's 99th birthday with a trio of special performances.

Sambora announced that he will perform three gigs at The Iridium, the New York City club where Les Paul performed once a week up until he passed away in 2009. Richie is playing one show on July 22, followed by two appearances on July 23.

It has not yet been made clear if Sambora intends to play his own solo material or if this show will contain many covers, only stating that the performances "promise to be impressive nights of authentic rock 'n' roll, celebrating the electric guitar sounds and versatility made possible by Paul's inventive mind," according to Richie Sambora's website.
