Playing to more than 15 million people over the last twenty years, the Steve Miller Band is delving into their deep catalogue of hits from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s for their 2017 summer tour. A mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended American culture in the late '60s, Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously articulated a compelling vision of what music-and society-could be in the years to come.
Then, in the '70s, Miller crafted a brand of rock 'n' roll music that was polished, exciting and irresistible, and that has dominated radio through today. Hit followed hit in an endless flow: "The Joker," "Livin' in the USA," "Take the Money and Run," "Rock'n Me," "Fly Like an Eagle," "Jet Airliner," "Jungle Love," and "Abracadabra" among them. To this day, these songs are instantly recognizable when they come on the radio-and impossible not to sing along with.
Previously associated with British bands, the Herd, and Humble Pie, Peter Frampton became an international hit with his album Frampton Comes Alive!, which is one of the top-selling live records of all time. He has since released several major albums, and collaborated with legendary artists including David Bowie, Ringo Starr, Jerry Lee Lewis and many others. Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history with hits such as “Breaking All the Rules”, “Do You Feel Like We Do”, and “I’m in You”.
Miller comments on Frampton; “Peter and I first met at Olympic studios in London in the late sixties when we were both just starting our recording careers,” said Miller. “He was a wonderful guitarist and songwriter then and he is even more so today. Over the years, we’ve played together in venues from theatres to football stadiums and everything in between. He always sets the musical bar high, his band always knocks me out, and I’m thrilled we are going to spend the summer together doing a great run of concerts. This is the kind of quality and talent we both strive to present and I’m looking forward to a summer of great music, exceptional performances and fun. Peter is remarkable musician.”
