Steve Miller Band announces summer tour with Peter Frampton

The Steve Miller Band has announced dates for a summer tour of North America with Peter Frampton.

The 32-show run of mostly amphitheaters – with more concerts to be added – will launch in Holmdel, NJ on June 15 and is currently set to end in Murphys, CA on August 13.

"Peter and I first met at Olympic studios in London in the late Sixties when we were both just starting our recording careers,” says 2016 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Miller. “He was a wonderful guitarist and songwriter then and he is even more so today. He always sets the musical bar high, his band always knocks me out and I'm thrilled we are going to spend the summer together doing a great run of concerts. This is the kind of quality and talent we both strive to present and I'm looking forward to a summer of great music, exceptional performances and fun. Peter is remarkable musician."

"Steve Miller was in a recording studio vocal booth stacking incredible harmonies the first time we met in London, circa 1970," adds Frampton. "From that moment on, I have been a huge admirer of his multiple talents: singing, writing and of course his amazing guitar playing.

“Steve has already asked if I will come and jam on a few tunes during his set. ‘YES PLEASE!’ was my very quick answer! Music is all about having fun and playing from the heart. I can guarantee you much fun will be had by all on this tour. Can’t wait to get out there and do it again!!”

On sale dates for tickets to the 2017 tour vary by city, with some shows going on sale as early as February 3; check for further details.

The summer run follows a 2-week series of spring US dates by Miller in late March and early April.
