Summer Nights With Joe Walsh

Joe Walsh is having such a great time on the road with his backing band that he’s following up the “One Hell Of A Night” Bad Company co-bill with a July-September solo tour.

The Eagles guitarist is bringing along Barnstorm bandmate Joe Vitale on drums, Chad Cromwell and Waddy Wachtel on guitar, Larry Young on bass, Jimmy Wallace on keyboards and DJ Clayton Janes. Backing vocals are provided by Leslie Fuller, Lois Mahalia, Windy Wagner and Rickey Washington.  

“I decided to round up great players that I’ve played with in the past, like Joe, Waddy, Chad and Rickey,” Walsh said. “These guys know my music and I’m very comfortable playing with them. I think this band is the best I’ve had in a long time. I didn’t feel that the One Hell of a Night Tour should be the end based on how we are all playing.”
