Of all the "should have been huge" bands of the '70s, Angel were near the top of that list. They seemingly had all the right boxes checked to make them household names, but it was not to be.

After a long stretch of silence, guitarist Punky Meadows released his first solo album, Fallen Angel, last year. Now, he and his band are hitting the road for a handful of live dates. The short run starts on March 8 with a trio of shows in Las Vegas, San Diego and Los Angeles. Several weeks later, on April 21, he'll play Poughkeepsie, N.Y., before wrapping up on April 29 in New York City. You can see all of the dates and venues below.

Meadows will be joined onstage by singer Chandler Mogel, guitarist Danny Farrow, keyboardist Charlie Calv and drummer Bob Pantella. Bassist Felix Robinson recently had surgery, so he may be replaced if he's not able to perform.

Along with material from his album, Meadows will play highlights from Angel's catalog. “Can't wait to get on the road and play for all the fans again,” he said in a press release announcing the tour. “We're coming to a town near you and we're going to tear the place up!! It's going to be one bad ass party, so don't miss it, and let's rock!!”
