Joe Walsh announces fall North American tour

Joe Walsh has announced dates for a fall tour of North America.

The Eagles guitarist will perform 13 shows on the month-long run, which opens in Warren, OH on September 18.

The trek will reunite Walsh with one of his Barnstorm band members, keyboardist and drummer Joe Vitale; the lineup will also include guitarist Gannin Arnold, bassist Tommy Simms and drummer Drew Hester.

Walsh says he will be performing hits from throughout his career, ranging from the James Gang to his Barnstorm days, to the Eagles and his solo records…along with 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,” says Walsh. “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.”

Joe Walsh Fan Club members will be able to access pre-sale tickets starting Wednesday, July 29 at 10am local venue time.

Tickets will go on sale for the general public starting Friday, July 31.

Walsh and The Eagles are currently playing shows across the US on their “History of the Eagles” tour in support of the band’s 2013 documentary of the same name.

The band have been named as one of the recipients of the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors.

The Eagles will be inducted at the 38th Annual Kennedy Center Honors event in Washington, DC in December alongside fellow honorees singer-songwriter Carole King, filmmaker George Lucas, actress and singer Rita Moreno, conductor Seiji Ozawa and actress and Broadway star Cicely Tyson.
