Thanks to the Rock n’ Roll Diary we learned that today marked the live, concert debut of Bad Company at Newcastle City Hall, U.K. on March 8, 1974. The response in their homeland for the already established rock stars was so overwhelming, their arrival in the U.S. was inevitable.
Paul Rodgers said: “…the response to Bad Company was overwhelming, night after night. When we started out on tour, the album had just broken into the charts. Three months later, we were at number one. We were received with open arms.” Click below to watch them in action from this early period of their career. Gotta love that warm, rainbow glow from the stage lights.
