This summer is getting a hearty dose of classic rock, as veteran guitarist Joe Walsh and rockers Bad Company are teaming up for a major tour. Spanning from May 12th through July 3rd, the “One Hell Of A Night Tour” will see the artists perform a total of 25 shows nationwide, bringing out all of the hits and more!“I had always hoped that we would do something together and so here we are 30 years later finally touring together,” said Bad Company frontman Paul Rodgers in a statement. “It has taken us this long so I wouldn’t miss this. Unless you want to wait 30 more years for our next tour in 2046! There is only one Joe Walsh, he is such a unique person and an uber talented singer, songwriter and musician.”Walsh is the longtime lead guitarist for The Eagles, and this tour marks his first appearances since the passing of bandmate Glenn Frey. Walsh was also the lead in The James Gang, which penned the hit “Funk 49,” “Walk Away” and more. Walsh said about the tour, “Paul and I agreed it would be a hell of an evening of music, one that will be memorable for everyone who comes, and memorable for us, and that’s important in this day and age.”Expect all the big hits!

Another huge loss in the music industry, Paradigm Talent Agency’s Chip Hooper passed away earlier this week at the age of 53 after a four-year battle with cancer. Hooper was the longtime personal agent for Phish, Dave Matthews Band, and as many as 2,200 other artists while overseeing 115 agents, according to Billboard, who repeatedly included him on their annual Power 100 list.Hooper’s effect on the band, the members, and the entire Phish family is one that will be felt as long as the music exists. According to guitarist Trey Anastasio, “he felt more like a brother than a booking agent” and “he was there every single step of the way.” Read Anastasio’s touching statement below:In Memory of Chip HooperChip was a genuinely beautiful soul. He had a huge smile, and a heart of gold. He was a true friend. I have so many memories of walking around the corner on the way to the stage, and there would be Chip, and suddenly we’d be cracking up about some ridiculous thing and everyone would have to wait a couple minutes to go to the stage. He was always talking about his family or his work with such pride. He cared. It really hurts that we lost him. Even at the very end, visiting with him in the hospital, he’d be laughing and commanding the room with his huge joyous presence.It’s impossible to overstate the effect that Chip had on Phish’s journey, and subsequently on the journeys of every Phish fan. He was there every single step of the way. He felt more like a brother than a booking agent. We are really going to miss him. – Trey AnastasioOur thoughts are with the family and friends of Chip Hooper. May he Rest In Peace![Photo via Phish]

The interesting musical bookings keep coming on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Since going live back in September, Colbert and musical director Jon Batiste have made sure to feature great live music over whatever is the currently popular on the radio. Last night, the trend continued, as Ryan Adams went on The Late Show to perform his classic “Oh My Sweet Carolina”, and he brought some friends with him to spruce up the performance. The Infamous Stringdusters and Nicki Bluhm were both on hand to help with the song. The acoustic song was a perfect fit for these guests, as the Stringdusters add a beautiful country twang to the track, while Bluhm harmonizes beautifully with Adams.Watch the video of “Oh My Sweet Carolina” below.
Live For Live Music is thrilled to announce a massive fall schedule with Dopapod and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong. The co-headline tour will feature full sets from both bands, covering most of the eastern half of the country and including stops at Irving Plaza in New York City, The Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville, VA, The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC, Terminal West in Atlanta, Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, NC, and more. Throughout the tour, L4LM looks forward to bringing you exclusive content, behind-the-scenes footage, creative feature pieces, video/track releases, and so much more.While Dopapod and PPPP have certainly shared some stages in their days, it’s always been in brief passing on the road. This will be the bands’ first-ever tour partnership, and we’re expecting some serious jams to come in result. “Pairing up made too much sense not to do!” explains Dopapod vocalist/guitarist Rob Compa. “We’re always crossing paths, whether it be barely missing each other along tour or at festivals. After a while it became clear that we ought to do something cool together. I’m happy that this finally came together.”Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s front man Greg Ormont jokingly adds, “We’ve always wanted to tour with a band whose name is a palindrome but ABBA and Emily’s Sassy Lime are always too busy, so we ended up with Dopapod. Fortunately, they’re great friends and even better musicians, so it should be an epic few months on the road.” Both groups recently shared the stage at The TLA in Philly, when Dopapod keyboardist Eli Winderman sat in with Pigeons on their original song, “F.U.”. Fan-shot video of the collaboration can be viewed below:Check out the full schedule below. Tickets and show information can be found at both Dopapod and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong‘s band websites.

The master producer himself, Pretty Lights, recently gave a rare interview in The Denver Post. In it, PL sheds some light on his new album, the follow up to 2013’s A Color Map Of The Sun. The way he describes it has us very intrigued.When asked what he had planned for 2017, Pretty Lights said, “I’m really excited about what I’m working on. I’ve got an album that’s almost ready. It’s slated for an early 2017 release.” He continued, “It’s not just a music record — I’m actually making a film with it as well.”Apparently, every track on the new album will have a corresponding film, such that the whole album flows together like a full length movie.“I’m trying to make a film and a record that’s really about the connection of people — the amazing things that happen between people on the same frequency. It will be an episodic thing that makes a full piece. Every song has an episode.It connects to my episodic music festival. When I was booking that tour, I wanted to call it “The Weekend’s Episodic Festivals.” I didn’t know why I wanted to call it that, but it’s all going together. Every festival, we’d have a film shoot that became the building blocks of these episodic film pieces. It’s pretty (cool).”Sounds pretty cool to us! We’ll be sure to update you once more details are announced about this fascinating project.
