Bad Company/Lynyrd Skynyrd
Bad Company

Lynyrd Skynyrd
Since both of these bands are celebrating the 40 years they've been around, they are going to be co-headling a 2013 tour together. This tour, deemed the '40' tour, will kick off on June 20, in Auburn, Washington, and move east, ending on July 27, in Bethel, N.Y.

This tour has 12 dates total. Stops include Houston, Charlotte, N.C. Cincinnati. It was thought these two should tour together because Lynyrd Skynyrd released their debut album on Aug. 13, 1973 and Bad Company formed the same year. While the bands have never toured together, Paul Rodgers has toured with Skynyrd before.

Both bands are excited; Johnny Van Zant of Skynyrd is excited, as he notes that Rodgers is one of his favorite singers. And opening 11 of the 12 shows will be Black Stone Cherry
