One of the “Greatest Guitarists of All Time”, Joe Walsh of the Eagles performs solo tour at Caesars Windsor Sept 19Book A Room
Windsor, ON – Joe Walsh, of the legendary classic rock band the Eagles, is launching his solo tour, making his 2nd and only Canadian stop at the Colosseum on Saturday, September 19 at 9 pm.
This tour will reunite Walsh with one of his Barnstorm band members, keyboardist and drummer Joe Vital, supported with Gannin Arnold on guitar, Tommy Simms on bass and Drew Hester on drums.
Hear him perform his greatest hits 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.
Walsh said, “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.”
“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.”
Named one of Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”, Walsh has entertained the masses and captivated his peers for more than three decades with such classics as “Funk #49,” “Walk Away,” “Life’s Been Good,” and “Ordinary Average Guy.” In 1973 Walsh released his first solo album, which proved him a legitimate solo act with a limitless career on the horizon. By 1975 he joined the Eagles, bringing a harder rock sound to the group with the acclaimed, Grammy-award winning Hotel California, known as one of the best albums of all time, selling more than 32 million copies worldwide.
Witness the legendary musicianship of Walsh, live and on stage, performing songs from his solo career as well as your favourite Eagles hits.
