Beck, Wilson, Rodgers

Jeff Beck, Paul Rodgers and Heart’s Ann Wilson have announced a North American summer tour.

They’ll play a total on 19 dates on the Stars Align Tour, kicking off in West Valley City on July 18 and wrapping up in Tampa on August 26.

Beck says: “I always enjoy touring the US in the summer and joining with Paul and Ann Wilson should make for quite an exciting night.”

Rodgers adds: “This is going to be a knock out combination of music and musicians. I’ve always been a Jeff Beck fan, who isn’t? He is in a league of his own.

“Ann Wilson has an amazing voice and is a brilliant songwriter. 2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of Free and I hope we can touch your spirit with the Spirit Of Free.”

Wilson says she is “thrilled” to join the tour and adds: “They are both long-time favourites of mine! They are masters at their craft and it is an honour to share the stage this summer.”
