Bad Company Reunite For One-off Gig
Rock supergroup Bad Company are to reunite for one night only.
New Queen frontman Paul Rodgers has confirmed the Feel Like Makin' Love rockers will play their first show in almost a decade at the Seminole Hard Rock + Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
Rodgers tells Billboard.com, "It'll be great to see the guys and play and go back down that road again just for one night.
"(We're) protecting the legacy that we have built... cementing the rights to the trademark Bad Company for touring.
"I can't really go into that because it's kind of in the hands of our lawyers at the moment. But there are a lot of things that make it necessary to reinforce our rights here.
"By doing this one-night stand with Bad Company, we will be cementing our right to the trademark 'Bad Company' for touring, and anyone who attempts to challenge us and tour misusing our trademark and mislead the fans will be liable to legal action."
Rodgers, guitarist Mick Ralphs and drummer Simon Kirke will take the stage in Florida on 8 August (08).
The show will be dedicated to the memory of Steve Weiss, the longtime attorney for Bad Company and Led Zeppelin, who died last month (Jun08) in Florida.
