While talking about the tour Rodgers referenced when the band’s records were distributed through Led Zeppelin’s Swan Song Records.

“When Mick and I formed the band we were amazed at the instant success,” Rodgers said. “It didn’t hurt to have Led Zeppelin behind us, and we wrote some decent songs that still resonate. This one is for the fans.”     

The coheadline dates are scheduled June 20-23, July 11-14 and July 17-27. The new gigs include the first and last stops on the tour as well as a handful of gigs in between.
