EAGLES rocker Joe Walsh is gripped with nerves ahead of the band's first planned concerts in China next year (11) - because he has "no idea" what to expect from his first shows in the country.
The 1970s rockers' Long Road Out Of Eden tour will continue well into 2011, with new dates planned in Shanghai and Beijing for 9 and 12 March, respectively.
And the guitarist admits he's riddled with anxiety wondering what kind of reception they will receive on their first trip to China - 40 years after the band formed.
He says, "I am really looking forward to that... I don't know it they are going to sit there and look at us, or clap or if they will know any of the words. We will just go and play and an Eagles concert like we do and see what happens."
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
