Steve Miller Band 7/9/19

The Steve Miller Band has just rolled out a three-night Las Vegas run for the fall. The band, which is currently on tour with Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives, will hit Wynn Las Vegas’ Encore Theatre on October 2nd, 4th, and 5th. The announcement publicizing the trio of “Sin City” dates reads in part: “Enlivening the music scene for more than half a century, Steve Miller Band will bring beloved hits from albums such as The JokerFly Like An Eagle, and Book Of Dreams to the stage.”

Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 12th at 10 a.m. PDT, with prices ranging from $59.50 to $250, plus applicable fees.

Although, Steve Miller had originally planned on spending his time off earlier this year to begin recording a new album, but instead turned his focus onto a joint live project with frequent touring mate Peter Frampton, who is currently in the midst of his final tour after discovering he’s suffering from a degenerative muscle disease called Inclusion-Body Myositus (IBM), that slowly weakens the body’s muscles.

Miller shed light on the upcoming duo project, which features the various blues duels the pair performed together over their 2017 and 2018 summer tours: [“Y’know, we did 89 shows together, and we went through all the live recordings that we did and we pulled out, I think, 11 tracks. So, we’re putting the record together now with Peter and I, and he’s playing so beautifully, and he’s working so hard — I think he’s already recorded four albums, so far. I think he’s playing better than he’s ever played. People say that a lot, but, y’know, but really and truly, after doing those 89 shows with him, I’ve gotten to know his playing so well — he’s really a great guitar player.”] SOUNDCUE (:30 OC: . . . great guitar player)

So far there’s been no title or release sate for the Steve Miller / Peter Frampton live set.
