Bad Company will tour the UK in October, with support from former Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora and his girlfriend and collaborator Orianthi.

Paul Rodgers says his band, featuring fellow original members Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke, are looking forward to going back to the country where they started out.

The frontman comments: “Returning to the UK where it all began 40-plus years ago is full circle for the band, and the fans. It’s always a pleasure to play in the UK.”

Entitled the Swan Song Tour, it’s Bad Company’s first run of shows in Britain in four years. Additional support comes from Steve Rodgers and Jasmine Rodgers on alternate dates.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
