The last 12 months was one for the record books for Miller. Miller released his second volume box set of collected vinyl, as well as the acclaimed Welcome to the Vault box set. He performed live in over 50 cities, played “Fly Like an Eagle” with The Roots on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, did two nights at Jazz at Lincoln Center performing Cannonball Adderley and the Blues and had seven instruments on display at the record breaking Play It Loud exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Steve Miller Band was formed in 1967 in San Francisco during the height of the psychedelic scene that was happening at the time. Throughout their 45-year career, Steve Miller Band are known for massive hits like “Fly Like An Eagle”, “The Joker”, “Swingtown”, “Take The Money And Run”, “Rock’n Me”, “Jet Airliner”, “Abracadabra”, and “Jungle Love”.
Tickets are on sale at the usual outlets for all shows except Caesars Windsor, which will make an announcement soon.
