Steve Miller Band and Peter Frampton

Coming off an extraordinary 2017, Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer Steve Miller is looking forward to his summer 2018 tour. Joining Miller and his band on this tour once again will be special guest Peter Frampton.

“2017  was  an  amazingly  beautiful,  creative  and  rewarding  music  experience  for  our  band  and  our  audience,”  says Miller. “The band and production crew are working on creating an even better concert experience for 2018 and plan on wading even deeper into the musical waters. Peter Frampton and I enjoyed last summer.  There is so much to explore and we are really looking forward.”

Frampton adds, “Having had such a fantastic tour together last summer, Steve and I decided to keep going this year! Jamming together each night during Steve’s set is one of my favorite moments of the evening. Can’t wait to get back out there.”

Last  September,  Miller  produced  and  personally  directed  the  curation  and  creative  process  for  two  new,  career-­‐spanning  Steve  Miller  Band Ultimate  Hits collections  (Capitol/Ume). Ultimate  Hits is  available  in  a  1CD  and  digital edition  featuring  22  essential  Steve  Miller  Band  tracks,  including  three  previously  unreleased  rarities,  and  in  an expanded 2CD and digital deluxe edition with 40 tracks, including the acclaimed band’s top hits, live tracks, and eight previously unreleased recordings from the studio and the stage. Both editions are also available on 180-­‐gram vinyl in 2LP and 4LP deluxe packages.

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  song  craft  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.

The Steve Miller Band has played to more than 20 million people in the last 20 years. In addition to touring with his band, Miller is also contributing his time to serving on the visiting 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 blues, jazz and early American music. From 2015 -­‐ 2017, Miller and guitar legend Jimmie Vaughan presented seven sold out shows at JALC: “Ma Rainey Meets Miles Davis,” “T Bone Walker -­‐ A Bridge  From  Blues  to  Jazz,”  and,  with  along  with  harmonica  virtuoso  Charlie  Musselwhite,  “The  Blues  Triangle: Memphis, Texas and Chicago.”

The Steve Miller Band 2018 USA tour dates and further album release and compilation information will be announced early next year.
