Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steve Miller Band is hitting the road this summer with special guest Peter Frampton for a 32-date tour.
The joint tour kicks off in June in Holmdel, NJ and wraps up in Murphys, CA on August 13. The tour will make stops across North America, including dates in Tulsa, Philadelphia, Toronto and Los Angeles.
Fans will get the rare opportunity to see these two guitar legends play on the same stage.
This isn’t the first time these rock veterans have teamed up with industry peers for a summer tour. The Steve Miller Band in 2015 toured with Journey. Peter Frampton in 2016 toured with Gregg Allman and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Both will join Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at the Mountain Jam festival.
Formed in 1966 in San Francisco, CA, the Steve Miller Band is known for hits like “Abracadabra,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jet Airliner,” “The Joker” and “Mercury Blues.”
The band recorded their debut album Children of the Future in 1968 and would go on to produce several other records, including Brave New World, Sailor, Number 5, Your Saving Grace and Rock Love. In 1978, the band’s Greatest Hits 1974-78, was released. The album achieved massive commercial success, selling more than 13 million copies.
The band last released an album in 2011 with Let Your Hair Down.
Miller continues to play to sold-out crowds, and frontman Steve Miller was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016.
The Steve Miller Band has sold more than 60 million records and released 18 studio albums.
English-born Peter Frampton is a rock musician, songwriter, singer, guitarist and producer. He was formerly associated with the bands The Herd and Humble Pie.
Frampton achieved international success with the release of his live album Frampton Comes Alive! in 1976, which sold more than 8 million copies in the U.S. alone. The album spawned the hits “Do You Feel Like We Do“ and “Baby, I Love Your Way.“
His 2007 album Fingerprints won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album.
Frampton’s latest album “Acoustic Classics” was released in 2016.
The musician just finished an acoustic tour that ran from March through April 2017. Frampton was accompanied by his son Julian on the guitar. The tour made stops in markets on the East Coast that Frampton missed on his 2016 tour.
