Event Details

As one of rock's legendary voices, Brian Howe exploded onto the scene when he partnered up as lead vocalist with multi-platinum artist Ted Nugent for the 1983 album, Penetrator. As the front man of Nugent's live show, the album’s tour took Howe around the globe – his first opportunity to share his killer rock vocals internationally, and it wouldn't be long before the world would take notice of Howe’s ascension to super-stardom with his next venture - Bad Company.

After 5 albums in as many years, and frequent touring, Bad Company wrapped up the 70's in a decline. At this point the band decided to take some time off which proved to be professionally disasterous. Maybe it was a new decade, and a new wave of artist, the importance of MTV, or simply that the band could not find it's stride again since their last suceesses in the 70's. Whatever the reasons, the group wound up releasing the album Rough Diamonds in 1981 which continued their downward spiral, resulting in the band perfoming at much smaller venues and consequently, the departure of Paul Rodgers - leaving remaing members to re-evaluate the group's future.

Enter Brian Howe - Bad Company courted Brian to take the helm as lead vocalist in 1984. He accepted the offer, launched the group back into sold out arena tours, and the rest is history. Subsequently, Brian created, wrote, recorded and toured with Bad Company for the next ten years, headlining every major venue around the globe. In 1991 Brian Howe was reunited once again with Ted Nugent when Damn Yankees were brought on to support Brian and Bad Company in what was credited as one of the top 5 grossing tours of that year.

In addition to Bad Company's highly acclaimed, (and long–awaited) 1993 live CD What You Hear Is What You Get - The Best of Bad Company – Live, Brian wrote and sold 19 million additional albums highlighted by such radio and MTV music video hits as Holy Water, If You Needed Somebody, No Smoke Without A Fire and How About That.

Today, Brian and the band continue to perform around the globe and recently released his latest album CD entitled “Circus Bar” to rave reviews. In addition, Rhino Records are currently working on a date for the up-coming Bad Company double album release with Brian on vocals.
