Joe Walsh

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Joe Walsh will kick off his solo tour on Friday, September 18 at Packard Music Hall in Warren, Ohio.  Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10AM on Live Nation.

On September 18, 2015 Joe Walsh will launch his Fall solo tour in Ohio, concluding the string of dates in Boston at the Orpheum on October 17th. In addition to Ohio and Ontario, the tour will see Walsh primarily on the eastern seaboard, with dates in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.

This tour will reunite Joe with one of his Barnstorm band members, keyboardist and drummer Joe Vitale. Additionally Walsh will be supported with band members Gannin Arnold on guitar, Tommy Simms on bass and Drew Hester on drums.

Joe will be performing hits from throughout his career, ranging from the James Gang to his Barnstorm days, to the Eagles and his solo records right through to 2012’s ANALOG MAN, and some surprises:

“I’m going back in the catalog to dig out some songs that I haven’t ever played live, but everything everyone’s coming to hear will also be in the show,” Joe said. “I’ve got a great band and I’m excited to play with my old friend Joe Vitale again. I also love being able to go into smaller venues. I’ve missed it…The interaction with the audience is much better, everybody has a good seat and it reminds me of the old days. I think I play my best in a small venue when the bass drums are kicking me in the pants. I’m really looking forward to it all.”
