Bad Company Review

Hard Rock Live, Hollywood, FL.

By Bill Hernandez

Since 1973, Paul Rogers and Bad Company have enjoyed commercial success in the music industry and has put an indelible stamp on rock n’ roll with a straight-ahead, no-frills approach that has resulted in the creation of some of the most timeless rock anthems ever. Bad Company rolled into the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Tuesday night to prove they still have it after all of these years, and that they did!

Last night's performance has got to be one of the best that I have seen within the last five years. Paul Rogers and his motley crew of amazing musicians took over the venue and never let go. Hard Rock Live was filled to capacity, which is a hard thing to do on a Tuesday night, especially when it is also the day before Valentines Day. The crowd was pumped and excited and the band took to the stage and rocked out the first song with “Can’t Get Enough”

It only took the first song to get this audience on their feet for the first of many standing ovations. The noise lever that rang throughout the venue was one that I haven't’ heard at Hard Rock Live in quite awhile. Before the crowd could quiet down, Rogers went right into “Live For The Music”, “Gone, Gone, Gone”, and “Feel Like Makin’ Love”. The vocals of the audience over-took Rogers vocals as the crowd began to sing to him at the top of their lungs. Rogers obliged and let the fans take over.

This concert was a greatest-hits show. Every major release that Bad Company charted was played here tonight. No one was left disappointed, only wanting more. “Honey Child”, “Burnin’ Sky”, “Rock Steady”, “Shooting Star”, and “Rock n’ Roll Fantasy” closed out the set before the band left the stage for the first of three encores.

With deafening roars that shook the ceiling, the crowd cheered and yelled with absolute delight for their rock heroes to return to the stage. Entering stage-left, Rogers makes his way to the ebony-colored piano and with the pressing of just a few keys, we already knew what was coming, and the fans went wild. While Rogers sang “Bad Company”, we all paid homage to this great band by providing back-up vocals as the band played on. Finishing the song, the band exited the stage once again and performed “Deal With The Preacher”. For the final encore of the night, Bad Company performed the Mott The Hoople cover “Ready For Love”.

Theses are the kind of concerts Hard Rock needs to continue to bring. Walking out of the venue, you could hear the conversations people were having about how great this performance was and the smiles are probably still on their face this morning. If you missed this performance, you have another chance to catch Paul Rogers when he comes to West Palm Beach with Jeff Beck and Ann Wilson of Heart on August 25, 2018.
