About Steve Miller Band
The announcement of the 2013 touring season by the Steve Miller Band follows four 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 returning for his second tour of Europe in two years last year or headed off on his New Zealand Australia tour in spring 2013.
Miller’s broad appeal crosses boundaries, from headlining the 2011 opening of the new $2.5 million TV
home of “Austin City Limits” to collaborating with country superstar Kenny Chesney on the Country Music Television special, “Crossroads.” His triumphant 2012 return to Europe was highlighted by a smashing, sold out, critically-acclaimed performance at London’s historic Roundhouse. He starts the 2013 touring season, after a handful of warm-up dates in Florida, with the band’s appearances in New Zealand and Australia to follow.
Miller has 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 (“cause for celebration,” said the Huffington Post). The two albums featured artwork by noted Pink Floyd artist Storm Thorgerson and the final recordings of longtime Steve Miller Band member Norton Buffalo, Miller’s “partner in harmony” for thirty-three years, who died from cancer in October 2009.
In 2010, Miller went back to Europe for the first time in more than twenty-five years for a hugely successful round of dates culminating in a sold out Royal Albert Hall concert in London, before rock royalty such as Jimmy Page and David Gilmour, raising demand for his return last year to Europe, where Demon Records released new editions in 2011-12 of almost the entire Steve Miller Band album catalog on digipak CDs that won praise from reviewers, bloggers and fans alike.
One of rock music’s all-time greats, the Steve Miller Band has sold more than 30 million records in a career
spanning more than 40 years. His trademark blues-rock sound made him one of the key artists in classic rock radio. The Steve Miller Band is brand name rock that millions have come to trust.
