Bad Company announced five U.S. tour dates for the closing months of 2018, including two appearances with Lynyrd Skynyrd and one with Cheap Trick.
The lineup features original singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke, but guitarist Mick Ralphs appears to be unlikely to return after suffering a stroke in 2016.
“The only information I have is that he has paralysis on his left side, which is all indications of the stroke,” Kirke told WMTRAM.com last year. “I don’t really want to comment any further ’cause I don’t know, but given his age, which is 72, the prognosis is not good. … We pray for him and we wish him as best an outcome as is possible at that age. In terms of a career, it’s not looking good for him, quite honestly.”
