News > Bad Company / Queen Vh1

Added on 07-Apr-2008

Bad Company hasn’t performed together since 1999 but this summer, they’ll play a one-off show together at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida. Paul Rodgers spoke to Billboard saying, “It’ll be great to see the guys and play and go back down that road again just for one night.” We spoke to drummer Simon Kirke last year who seemed all for getting back together. “I feel pretty good about them. We had a great run, 30 odd years, very odd years. I’m not saying we’re dead in the water yet. There’s always a chance we’ll do another tour. We’ll see. I know Mick (Ralphs), the guitar player, wants to do something and I’d like to, I don’t mind. If the music is good and if we get on decently”.As for why the one show, Rodgers explained, “What I’m doing is protecting the legacy that we have built… By doing this one night stand with Bad Company, we will be cementing our right to the trademark ‘Bad Company’ for touring, and anyone who attempts to challenge us and tour misusing our trademark and misleading the fans will be liable to legal action”. The show, which’ll take place on August 8th, will be recorded for a DVD that will accompany a Bad Company compilation album set to hit shelves later this year. Don’t expect more from the band though, Paul is busy working with Queen as well as on his solo career. He’s got a new album tentatively titled The Cosmos Rock due out this fall.
