STEVE MILLER BAND CONFIRMS NORTH AMERICAN SUMMER TOUR

CELEBRATES ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTION 

CEREMONY SCHEDULED FOR APRIL 8TH, 2016

 

Steve Miller Band has confirmed their 2016 North American summer tour. Beginning June 17 in Northfield, OH, at Hard Rock Live, and ending September 4 in a co-bill date with Santana, Journey and Doobie Brothers in San Francisco, CA at AT&T Park, the tour confirmation comes on the heels of Miller being voted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  The multifaceted songwriter, singer, guitarist, producer will be inducted after being nominated for the first time this year. Miller will join fellow inductees at the 2016 induction ceremony, scheduled for April 8th, 2016. The complete 2016 summer tour itinerary is below.

 

 Steve Miller was a mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended American culture in the late '60s. With albums like Children of the Future, Sailor and Brave New World, 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.

 

Running through Miller's catalogue is a combination of virtuosity and songcraft along with melodic vocals and signature guitar riffs. His parents were jazz aficionados -- Les Paul was his godfather -- so as a budding guitarist and singer, Miller absorbed valuable lessons from their musical tradition. When the family moved to Texas, Miller deepened his education in the blues, meeting T-Bone Walker and learning to sing and play listening to him and Jimmy Reed.  Miller then moved to Chicago where he played with Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Lightnin' Hopkins, Buddy Guy and Paul Butterfield.

 

Miller is also contributing his time to serving on the welcoming committee of the Department of Musical Instruments of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and as a board member of Jazz at Lincoln Center, where he curates and hosts shows at both institutions celebrating the bridge between blues and jazz music and early American music.
