Bad Company will begin the next season of PBS’ long-running Soundstage series with an hour-long, 11-song set list boasting some of their biggest hits — including “Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy,” which you can watch above as an exclusive premiere.
Scheduled to air starting Jan. 5, Bad Company’s Soundstage episode starts a season that’s also scheduled to include appearances from rock vets Blondie and Kenny Loggins. The latest revival of the venerable series that ran from 1974-85 and again from 2003-10, it promises to make viewers “feel like they are part of the audience during these special, interactive performances with music icons and talented up-and-comers alike.”
Recorded during Bad Company’s 2016 tour, this performance was taped at the Grainger Studio in Chicago, and finds the band performing hits and fan favorites such as “Can’t Get Enough,” “Movin’ On,” “Ready for Love” and “Rock Steady.” The group is set to return to the road in early 2017 for the Rock Legends Cruise VI, which sails Feb. 15-19, 2018 with a bill that includes Sammy Hagar and former Rik Emmett. They’ll presumably be performing without guitarist Mick Ralphs, who’s lightened his touring load in recent years and suffered a stroke in early November.
“We’re very excited about this upcoming season – one of the best ever,” says executive producer and director Joe Thomas. “It’s a privilege to add the names of these iconic groups and individuals to the roster of music greats whose performances are synonymous with this long-running and beloved series.”
