Joe Walsh

UPDATE: This is an ALL AGES show with 19+ beverage areas.

Joe Walsh and Kim Mitchell are on the bill at Bullen Park next week.

Best known for his powerful guitar licks, Walsh has entertained the masses and captivated his peers for more than three decades with classics Funk #49, Walk Away, Life’s Been Good, and Ordinary Average Guy.

This summer Walsh will release Analog Man, his first solo album in 20 years and will tour in support of the new record throughout 2012, both in the U.S. and abroad.

His is a long and storied musical career. In 1969 Walsh found success with The James Gang, followed by a stint with Barnstorm, a trio he founded. In 1973 Walsh released his first solo album, which proved him a legitimate solo act and in 1976 he joined The Eagles, bringing a harder rock sound to the group with the acclaimed Hotel California, The Long Run and Eagles Live.

In 1994, after a 14-year hiatus and several solo albums, The Eagles released Hell Freezes Over, which reached #1 on the Billboard charts and sparked one of the most successful tours in music history. In 1998 The Eagles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the first year they were nominated. Walsh performed at the 2012 Grammy’s with Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Dave Grohl and at the 2012 MusiCares event honoring Paul McCartney.

Walsh and Mitchell perform in Bullen Park, 1151 Esquimalt Rd. (behind Archie Browning arena) Aug. 28.

Gates open 5 p.m.  Tickets $69.50 to $95.50 are available online at www.hightideconcerts.net, Esquimalt Recreation Centre (527 Fraser St.) Lyles Place (770 Yates St.), Ditch Records (784 Fort St.) and McPherson box office at 250-386-6121.
