Rock News for Monday 24th May, 2010

Bad Company North American Tour Dates
Well, well, well ....
I guess the guys in Bad Company may have had many of us believing, that the US tour they undertook last year, may well have been it, but that appears to be wrong. I'm sure to the delight of many who didn't manage to catch any of those 10 exclusive dates?!

As of this moment though, their website: is only displaying just 5 dates scattered over July / August, but I think the above banner tends to indicate that there will be a few more I'm sure!

Those dates announced so far are as follows:
July 2010
Friday July 16, 2010 Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, CA
Saturday July 17, 2010 Orange County Fair, Costa Mesa, CA
Tuesday July 27, 2010 Bank Of America Pavilion, Boston, MA
August 2010
Sunday August 1, 2010 Outlaw Jam, Frederick County Fairgrounds, Frederick, MD
Wednesday August 4, 2010 Casino Rama Entertainment Center, Rama, Ontario (Toronto)

Bret Michaels Personal message to fans ...
Over at the Poison frontman, Bret Michaels has issued the following statement today:

Personal note from Bret...
With all of my heart, soul and the remaining organs I have left (lol) I would like to thank each and every one of you for all of your support and awesomeness.
All the good vibes and well wishes gave me the strength to go back to New York and win Celebrity Apprentice. I am not at 100% yet but I have every intention of trying to continue the tour starting Friday in Biloxi. I hope to see your rockin rollin, smiling faces on the road that is the best medicine I can think of right now. You rock my world.
Love and respect,
Bret Michaels

New York, NY: Lynyrd Skynyrd will release Live From Freedom Hall on June 22 as both a CD/DVD set and as a stand-alone DVD. Live From Freedom Hall not only captures the band in its most natural state – on stage- but is also one of the last concerts to be recorded with longtime members Billy Powell and Ean Evans, both of whom passed away last year. The release is a tribute to and a celebration of Skynyrd.

The track listing for Live From Freedom Hall is as follows:
“Travelin’ Man”
“What's Your Name?”
“That Smell”
“Simple Man”
“Down South Jukin’”
“The Needle and the Spoon”
“Ballad Of Curtis Loew”
“Gimme Back My Bullets”
“Tuesday’s Gone”
“Red White and Blue”
“Gimme Three Steps”
“Call Me The Breeze”
“Sweet Home Alabama”
“Free Bird”

Lynyrd Skynyrd’s latest, Gods & Guns, was released via Roadrunner/Loud & Proud, debuting on the Billboard Top 20 at #18, representing their highest debut since 1977. Throughout the past year, the band has been enjoying continued success and increased visibility, appearing on The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien, The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, FOX News Channel’s Huckabee, Hannity, Fox & Friends, PBS Soundstage and more.

The band was recently inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Their classic and beloved American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” has surpassed the two million mark in downloaded ringtones. With a catalog of over 60 albums and sales beyond 30 million, Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a major cultural icon that appeals to all generations.

Lynyrd Skynyrd will return to the road for the next several months, touring with Bret Michaels and 38 Special in June before embarking on the Hannity Freedom Concert Series in August.
