Paul Rodgers Announces Spring Tour

Paul Rodgers has a new album out, and he’s ready to take it on the road.

The legendary singer’s work with Free and Bad Company is never far from the classic-rock radio airwaves, but for his latest project, Rodgers was interested in paying tribute to a different legacy — specifically, the one established by soul singers such as Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Ann Peebles and Albert King. Recorded in the Memphis studio famous for helping establish many of their careers, ‘The Royal Sessions’ found Rodgers singing live with some of the same musicians who played on the original tracks.

“We kicked off with ‘That’s How Strong My Love Is,’ they found out this guy can sing, we looked at each other and it was plain sailing, so convivial,” Rodgers recalls in the March 2014 issue of Mojo. “Mind you, I don’t want to overemphasize singing. It’s about the musicians.”

Rodgers, who has pledged to donate proceeds from the album to local Memphis music-education programs, will begin a series of dates on April 28 in New Jersey, concluding (for now) on May 31 in Nevada. Check out the complete list of dates below, and sample a track from ‘The Royal Sessions’ right here.
