After a successful 2017 run, Steve Miller Band and Peter Frampton will continue their North American summer tour. A few announced dates include Evansville, Indiana on June 12 and then back-to-back dates in Washington on August 25.
“Music is ethereal – it moves back and forth between the past and the future,” said Miller. “I’m very excited to announce that 2018 is our 50th anniversary of recording and touring together as the Steve Miller Band, and we plan to travel between the psychedelic sixties through the future with a vengeance!”
Beyond their typical songs, Frampton will also join Miller on stage.
