Simon Kirke, the legendary drummer from classic rock bands Free and Bad Company will be headlining The Kent Stage on March 15th.

Kirke is out supporting his latest solo album All Because of You.  Fans can expect to hear songs from this release as well as many other hits from throughout his career.  

Simon Kirke joined Free in 1968 as a nineteen year old drummer.  After four years and one huge hit “All Right Now,” Kirke and lead singer Paul Rodgers left the band and decided to form a new band.  After recruiting guitarist Mick Ralphs from Mott the Hoople and King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell, Bad Company was formed.  They had instant success as their first three records landed in the top five.  Today, you’re bound to hear a song that Kirke has played on after listening to any classic rock radio station after a few hours. 

Here’s your chance to see a great musician from two huge bands from the ’70s in an intimate setting.  The Empty Pockets are set to open the show.

Tickets are available at or The Kent Stage Box Office.
