An Evening with Steve Miller Band
July 29, 2013
Call him the Gangster of Love. Call him Maurice. You can even call him the Midnight Toker or Space Cowboy. Everybody knows that Steve Miller speaks the pompitus of love.
The announcement of the 2012 touring season by the Steve Miller Band follows three of the most busy, productive years in the long, illustrious career of Steve Miller, an artist at the peak of his powers, in demand around the world, whether as the headliner chosen to inaugurate the new $2.5 million TV home of "Austin City Limits" or collaborating with country superstar Kenny Chesney on the Country Music Television special, "Crossroads."
He released not one, but two new albums - the 2010 number one blues album, "Bingo," and its successor, "Let Your Hair Down" - the first new Steve Miller Band records in eighteen years. The two albums featured artwork by noted Pink Floyd artist Storm Thorgerson and the final recordings of longtime Steve Miller Band member Norton Buffalo.
