Grand Funk Railroad's "Some Kind Of Wonderful Tour" joined Kid Rock's "Bad Reputation Tour" this week playing two back to back shows in California. Kicking off in Wheatland, CA just outside Sacramento at the Toyota Amphitheater 9/30, GFR had the massive crowd on their feet the entire show.

With a short flight to Ontario, CA 10/1, Grand Funk again played an amazing set to a SOLD OUT Glen Helen Amphitheater in lovely San Bernardino. This was GFR's 12th show this year with Kid Rock, and the Michigan Rock & Roll combination was incredible.

Grand Funk Railroad kicked off their Some Kind Of Wonderful 2022 Tour 1/7/22 at the historic Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, NJ. Having played this iconic venue 24 years ago, it seemed very familiar. Originally opened in 1926 and named after the famous Jazz pianist Count Basie in 1984, it has been through many renovations and today hosts national touring acts of all musical genres.

GFR rocked the house on January 7 and despite the Covid Pandemic and the audience wearing masks, everyone had a great time revisiting the Grand Funk Hits.

Got some good pics to share!
