Coming off an extraordinary 2017, Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Steve Miller is looking forward to his summer 2018 tour, including a stop at the Majestic Theatre. “2017 was an amazingly beautiful, creative, and rewarding music experience for our band and our audience,” says Miller. “The band and production crew are working on creating an even better concert experience for 2018 and plan on wading even deeper into the musical waters. There is so much to explore and we are really look forward.”
Last September, Miller produced and personally directed the curation and creative process for two new, career-spanning Steve Miller band Ultimate Hits collections (Capitol/UME). Ultimate Hits is available in a 1CD and digital edition featuring 22 essential Steve Miller Band tracks, including three previously unreleased rarities, and in an expanded 2CD and digital deluxe edition with 40 tracks, including the acclaimed band’s top hits, live tracks, and eight previously unreleased recordings from the studio and the stage. Both editions are also available on 180-gram vinyl in 2LP and 4LP deluxe packages.
The Steve Miller Band has played more to more than 20 million people in the last 20 years. In addition to touring with his band, Miller is also contributing his time to serving on the visiting committee of the Department of Musical Instruments of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and as a board member of Jazz at Lincoln Center, where he curates and hosts shows at both institutions celebrating blues, jazz, and early American music. From 2015 – 2017, Miller and guitar legend Jimmie Vaughn presented seven sold out shows at JALC: “Ma Rainey Meets Miles Davis,” “T Bone Walker – A Bridge from Blues to Jazz,” and, with harmonica virtuoso Charlie Musselwhite, “The Blues Triangle: Memphis, Texas, and Chicago.”
This performance is part of the Bud Light Concert Series at the Majestic Theatre.
