JEFF BECK, PAUL RODGERS, ANN WILSON STARS ALIGN TOUR: A TALE OF THE TAPE

The Stars Align tour is truly a show in which three “heritage” acts take the stage with something to prove.

Jeff Beck is two years removed from his most recent album (2016’s Loud Hailer), on which he wails like a man a third of his age, and he’s brought together another band that should challenge as well as accompany him each show. At 68, Paul Rodgers has spent time in the last year or so breathing new life into classics — embarking on a tour honoring his first big band, Free, then rejoining his mates in Bad Company for a short run of dates to put “Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy,” “Can’t Get Enough” and “Good Lovin’ Gone Bad” in front of audiences again. Lately, Ann Wilson has been showing off her skills as an interpreter; recent set lists show a preponderance for cover tunes over Heart classics.

Current Lineup:

Jeff Beck: Jeff Beck (guitar), Jimmy Hall (vocals), Rhonda Smith (bass), Vinnie Colaiuta (drums), Vanessa Freebairn-Smith (cello)

Paul Rodgers: Rodgers’ most recent band consisted of Pete Bullick (guitar), Rich Newman (drums), Ian Rowley (bass) and Gerard “G” Louis (keyboards)

Ann Wilson: Ann Wilson (vocals), Craig Bartock (guitar), Andy Stoller (bass), Dan Walker (keyboards) and Denny Fongheiser (drums).
