Paul Rogers’ son Steve was the opening act for Bad Company in New York last night. In 2016 Paul and Steve released the song ‘This Place Called Home’.
Steve’s solo album ‘Head High Up’ was released in 2018.
Paul is touring the USA with a new Bad Company lineup featuring founding member Simon Kirke together with Howard Leese and Todd Ronning. Leese, formerly of Heart, has been a member of the Paul Rodgers Band since 1998 and a member of Bad Company since 2008. Ronning, also from Rodgers solo band, joined Bad Company in 2012.
The Bad Company setlist is structured around the first four albums with Rodgers giving a nod to his former band Free with ‘All Right Now’ and Kirke showcasing his 2017 solo album in the show.
