BAD COMPANY ANNOUNCE  FIRST APPEARANCES ON THE EUROPEAN CONTINENT SINCE 1975

PAUL RODGERS CHARITABLE RELEASE "WITH OUR LOVE"
RECEIVES INSTANTANEOUS WORLDWIDE  SUPPORT FROM RADIO

One Hundred Percent of The Proceeds Directed To The Racehorse Sanctuary & Rocking Horse Children's Charity and Seraphim 12 Foundation

The original line-up of Bad Company has announced a short run of European festival dates for this summer.  Commencing on June 9, the legendary ensemble will take the stage at the Sweden Rock Festival in Solvesborg.  Additional appearances will include five German Rock The Nation Festival performances in Berlin (6/11), Stuttgart (6/12), Augsburg (6/14), Trier (6/15) and Monchengladbach / Cologne (6/16).  Bad Company is Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs, and Simon Kirke.   This excursion marks the first time that Bad Company has performed on the European continent together in 37 years.  The April, 2010 release Bad Company Live at Wembley (DVD / Blu-Ray, Eagle Rock) has been a chart staple worldwide for the past year.

In December, Bad Company front man and main songwriter Paul Rodgers released a new studio recording titled "With Our Love."  The song was  shared with fans and the public on his 62nd birthday, with one hundred percent of the proceeds earmarked for the charities The Racehorse Sanctuary & Rocking Horse Children's Charity and Seraphim 12 Foundation.   The composition was co-written and performed with Perry Margouleff.

All of these charities are organizations Rodgers has offered significant support to in the past, in fact he is a Patron of one while Perry Margouleff is a Senior Board Member of the other.  Rodgers shared, "Horses are such a powerful part of human development and have been since the early ages. We humans owe them so much.  My wife Cynthia and I have visited both sanctuaries and can't imagine any of these healthy vibrant beings being sent off to slaughter.  Blues great Willie Dixon believed that 'Once we know better we can do better'...so now that we know better, let's do better."

Upon arrival at radio, worldwide support has been witnessed at the rock format.  The song "With Our Love," can be found on-line here: http://cdbaby.com/cd/paulrodgers and at all digital retailers.
