Walsh says he’s looking forward to playing more intimate venues and interacting with fans.

He’ll be joined on tour by his band – Gannin Arnold on guitar, Tommy Simms on bass and Drew Hester on drums. Plus, Walsh is bringing along keyboardist/drummer Joe Vitale, who was a member of his early ‘70s act, Barnstorm.

“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,” Walsh said. “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.”
