VIDEO: Steve Miller Band previews 50th Anniversary US tour with Peter Frampton

The Steve Miller Band are streaming a live performance video of the Elmore James track, “Stranger Blues”, with Peter Frampton as a preview to the pair’s summer US tour.

The duo teamed up on the late bluesman’s 1962 single in Costa Mesa, CA on a joint trek last year that went so well that they decided to head out again in 2018.

"Music is ethereal – it moves back and forth between the past and the future," says Miller. "I'm very excited to announce that 2018 is our 50th anniversary of recording and touring together as the Steve Miller Band, and we plan to travel between the psychedelic sixties through the future with a vengeance!"

Frampton will again join Miller onstage for some mid-set jamming for the three-month summer 2018 tour, which will begin in Evansville, IN on June 12.

Ahead of the summer series, Miller and Frampton will perform a handful of shows in western Canada and the US that also includes Miller’s appearance on the final day of New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on Sunday, May 6.

The Steve Miller Band are celebrating their landmark anniversary with the May 18 release of a vinyl box set entitled “Complete Albums Volume 1 (1968-1976).”

The set presents remastered editions of the group’s first nine studio records - from 1968’s “Children Of The Future” to 1976's “Fly Like An Eagle” – on 180-gram vinyl; they’ll also be available individually on the same day of the project’s spring release.

The albums have also been newly-remastered for HD digital audio (96kHz/24-bit and, since February 16, are being released weekly in chronological order ahead of the box set’s arrival.
