Few bands can say that they’ve had as big of an impact on popular music over the last century the way The Yardbirds can. The group that launched the careers of Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton, in addition to inspiring guitar bands of the 1970s like Aerosmith, Queen and KISS, is still going strong all these years later.
The band, led by its only remaining original member in drummer Jim McCarty, will be heading out on a previously announced spring tour starting late next month, and have now added an additional date to the mix with a show in Las Vegas at Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on June 1.
Following a few concerts back in March, the band’s 11-show run across the U.S. will start back up again on May 27, and will keep them on the road until July 7. The lineup has certainly changed over the years, but the songs on the setlist each night remain dear to the fans of their British Invasion era catalog. The band’s last studio album, Birdland, came out back in 2003, and featured a mix of new songs with updated versions of their older, 1960s material, with cameos from Slash, Steve Vai and Brian May.
