Walsh will be joined by his Barnstorm bandmate Joe Vitale on drums as well as Chad Cromwell, Waddy Wachtel on guitar, Larry Young on bass, Jimmy Wallace on keyboards and DJ Clayton Janes. Singers Leslie Fuller, Lois Mahalia, Windy Wagner and Rickey Washington will provide background vocals.
“I decided to round up great players that I’ve played with in the past, like Joe, Waddy, Chad and Ricky. 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.”
Drawing from an extensive catalog of hits throughout his four-decade career, the set list will include “Rocky Mountain Way”, “Walk Away”, “Life’s Been Good To Me So Far”, “Funk 49”, “Life In The Fast Lane”, “In The City”, “Over and Over”, “Life of Illusion”, “Turn To Stone”, “Ordinary Average Guy”, “Analog Man” and more.
Walsh has been busy and recently contributed an original song, “No Man’s Land” to the documentary, Citizen Soldier, about an Oklahoma National Guard unit which was called up to active duty and fought heroically in Afghanistan. Walsh has also been working with Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and original James Gang guitarist Glenn Schwartz.
Best known for his powerful guitar licks, Joe Walsh has entertained the masses and captivated his peers for more than three decades with such classics as “Funk #49,” “Walk Away,” “Life’s Been Good,” and “Ordinary Average Guy.” In 1969 Walsh found success with The James Gang, followed by a stint with Barnstorm, a trio he founded. In 1973 Joe released his first solo album, which proved him a legitimate solo act with a limitless career on the horizon. By 1975 he joined The Eagles, bringing a harder rock sound to the group with the acclaimed Hotel California, The Long Run and Eagles Live.
In 1994, after a 14-year hiatus and several solo albums, The Eagles released Hell Freezes Over, which reached #1 on the Billboard charts and sparked one of the most successful tours in music history. And in 1998 The Eagles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the first year they were nominated. Walsh performed at the 2012 Grammy’s with Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Dave Grohl and at the 2012 MusiCares event honoring Paul McCartney. That June Walsh released Analog Man, his first solo album in 20 years, performing solo shows around the world to support it throughout that year. In 2013 the award winning The History of The Eagles showcased at Sundance, the two part authorized documentary, and in February it aired on Showtime. In conjunction with the April release onto DVD the Eagles began their extensive The History of The Eagles World Tour. On February 9 2014 Walsh was featured in several songs on the CBS Special The Night The Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles. In 2014 Walsh played select solo shows as well as with the Eagles on The History of The Eagles World Tour, with new dates continuing throughout 2015. In April 2015 Walsh performed with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr for Starr’s Induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, later broadcast on HBO. In May 2015 Walsh joined Eddie Vedder and Pete Townsend for an All Star Celebration of The Who’s music to benefit Teen Cancer America.
