UNCASVILLE, CT (July 27, 2015) – On September 18, 2015 Joe Walsh will launch his Fall solo tour that will carry on through October 17th. Mohegan Sun Arena will host Walsh for an 8:00pm show on Friday, October 16th. The tour also hits Ohio and Ontario, but primarily showcases dates on the eastern seaboard, with New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina all set to welcome the Rock legend.

Tickets are $39.50 and go on sale Friday, July 31st through Ticketmaster at 10:00am.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, August 1st, subject to availability.

This tour will reunite Joe with one of his Barnstorm band members, keyboardist and drummer Joe Vitale.  Additionally Walsh will be supported with band members Gannin Arnold on guitar, Tommy Simms on bass and Drew Hester on drums.

Joe will be performing hits from throughout his career, ranging from the James Gang to his Barnstorm days, to the Eagles and his solo records right through to 2012’s ANALOG MAN, and some surprises:

“I’m going back in the catalog to dig out some songs that I haven’t ever played live, but everything everyone’s coming to hear will also be in the show,” Joe said.  “I’ve got a great band and I’m excited to play with my old friend Joe Vitale again. I also love being able to go into smaller venues. I’ve missed it…The interaction with the audience is much better, everybody has a good seat and it reminds me of the old days. I think I play my best in a small venue when the bass drums are kicking me in the pants. I’m really looking forward to it all.”

ABOUT JOE WALSH:

Best known for his powerful guitar licks, Joe Walsh has entertained the masses and captivated his peers for more than three decades with such classics as “Funk #49,” “Walk Away,” “Life’s Been Good” and “Ordinary Average Guy.” In 1969 Walsh found success with The James Gang, followed by a stint with Barnstorm, a trio he founded.  In 1973 Joe released his first solo album, which proved him a legitimate solo act with a limitless career on the horizon. By 1975 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. And 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 Grammys with Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Dave Grohl and at the 2012 MusiCares event honoring Paul McCartney. That June Walsh released Analog Man, his first solo album in 20 years, performing solo shows around the world to support it throughout that year. In 2013 the award winning The History of The Eagles showcased at Sundance, the two part authorized documentary and in February it aired on Showtime. In conjunction with the April release onto DVD the Eagles began their extensive The History of The Eagles World Tour. On February 9, 2014, Walsh was featured in several songs on the CBS Special The Night The Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles. In 2014 Walsh played select solo shows as well as with the Eagles on The History of The Eagles World Tour, with new dates continuing throughout 2015.  In April 2015 Walsh performed with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr for Starr’s Induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, later broadcast on HBO. In May 2015 Walsh joined Eddie Vedder and Pete Townshend for an All Star Celebration of The Who’s music to benefit Teen Cancer America.

Mohegan Sun Arena’s rescheduled concert date:

Monday, September 7th at 7:00pm

Following a string of scorching performances, Trainor’s show promises to be one of the hottest tickets of the summer. Don’t miss it!  For all the latest updates on The Mtrain Tour, visit meghan-trainor.com.

Mehgan Trainor’s first tour entitled, That Bass Tour, was hugely successful and critically acclaimed. About the tour, Billboard claimed, “Trainor stretched her set in ways that felt authentic,” while The Hollywood Reporter wrote, “The lifelong performer took advantage of the venue’s intimacy while also seizing the opportunity to serve a spectacle.” The Chicago Tribune said, “After a year that set the 21-year-old on an unexpected Pop star path, Trainor hit the stage in Chicago and showed that she had the verve and talent to justify her rise,” The Washington Post added, “Trainor’s voice sparkled almost as much as the bejeweled mike she poured it into,” and The OC Register claimed, “Her brand of Doo-Wop and Bubble Gum Pop, infused with bits of Funk and Hip-Hop, coupled with a sassy attitude and lyrics about female empowerment, have quickly made her a star.”

As soon as Title became available, it vaulted to the top of dozens of charts worldwide. With first-week sales of 237,511 units in total music consumption (albums/singles/streaming), the album ranks as the biggest-selling debut for a female artist’s first full-length album in more than five years; and the biggest-selling debut for a solo artist’s first full-length album in more than three years. Title has dominated iTunes Overall and Pop album charts in the U.S. at #1 since its release on January 13th, with #1 peaks reported from 67 countries worldwide.

Early critical reaction to Title was unanimously positive, with Rolling Stone magazine hailing Meghan’s “sass and self-empowerment,” and People proclaiming “she’s an It girl with staying power.” The New York Times profiled Meghan with references to Amy Winehouse and Adele; while Entertainment Weekly awarded the Title album an A-, declaring “right now, no Pop star is better than this 21-year-old singer, songwriter and producer at playing the sassy best friend.”  Billboard summed up, “You can’t miss this young artist’s skill with melodic and rhythmic hooks…along with her fluid, flexible voice.”

“All About That Bass” is a juggernaut in and of itself. Meghan’s phenomenal two-time Grammy®-nominated debut single spent eight weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and has been certified 6-times RIAA platinum in the U.S. alone. The song has worked its way into Pop culture with numerous cover versions and homages, including NBC’s Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon (with collective YouTube views of more than 40  million).

Globally, ”All About That Bass” has hit #1 in 58 countries, generated more than 10 million downloads, over 275 million streams, and nearly 700 million YouTube views to date. The follow-up single ”Lips Are Movin”  has been certified RIAA double platinum, has reached the top five on the Billboard Hot 100, top five at Top 40 radio and has over 180 million video views.
