Bad Company will return to the UK for their first tour in four years on their ‘Swan Song’ tour.  Original Bad Company members Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke will play eight dates in October.

One of the original stadium/arena rock bands of the mid-late 1970s, the band originally featured Rodgers and Kirke (ex-Free) and Mick Ralphs (ex-Mott The Hoople) together with the late Boz Burrell.

Special guests Richie Sambora and Orianthi (RSO) will open every show along with Steve Rodgers or Jasmine Rodgers as the first act.
