Steve Miller Band plays Stateline
Rock ‘n’ roll icon Steve Miller Band brings its collection of irresistible hits to Harveys Outdoor Arena on Thursday, Aug. 18, at 7 p.m. The group kicked off its 2016 tour of North America in June, celebrating Miller’s induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
“The Joker,” “Jet Airliner,” “Abracadabra” and “Fly Like an Eagle” are some of the many well-known songs that make up the band’s repertoire.
“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,” according to a press release from Big Hassle Media.
“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,” according to the release.
The San Francisco-based band concludes its summer tour in its hometown on Sept. 4 with a concert featuring Santana, Journey and The Doobie Brothers.
Roy Rogers & The Delta Rhythm Kings open for Steve Miller Band.
Tickets for the Thursday evening show start at $39.50, plus tax and fees.
Harveys Outdoor Arena is located at Highway 50 Stateline Avenue.
