Late Night FDL: Life’s Been Good
Joe Walsh just keeps on going…
Joe Walsh won’t be home for long after the Eagles finish their summer tour.
Walsh has announced a run of solo tour dates that will keep him on the road for at least a month this fall, starting with a Sept. 18 performance in Warren, Ohio, and continuing through Oct. 17 in Boston. Fans who turn out can reportedly expect a career-spanning set that will include favorites from Walsh’s solo records as well as his outings with the James Gang, Barnstorm and the Eagles.
“I’m going back in the catalog to dig out some songs that I haven’t ever played live, but everything everyone’s coming to hear will also be in the show,” says Walsh in a press release. “I’ve got a great band and I’m excited to play with my old friend Joe Vitale again. I also love being able to go into smaller venues. I’ve missed it. … The interaction with the audience is much better, everybody has a good seat and it reminds me of the old days. I think I play my best in a small venue when the bass drums are kicking me in the pants. I’m really looking forward to it all.”
Along with Vitale, Walsh will be touring with new guitarist Gannin Arnold, as well as bassist Tommy Sims and Foo Fighters percussionist Drew Hester on drums. Tickets are scheduled to go on sale to the general public starting July 31, after Joe Walsh Fan Club members get first dibs via a pre-sale that’s set to begin on July 28.
