Along with classics from the band's impressive repertoire, shows will also include new material from an upcoming album that the group recorded in 2008 at George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch. The still-untitled effort, for which no release date has been announced, will contain blues and R&B songs selected from the more than three dozen the band recorded in the studio.
"This is the frat-rock album of all time," Miller stated on the group's website.
The classic rockers made it big in the 1970s with the No. 1 songs "The Joker" and "Rock'n Me," along with fellow fan favorites "Take The Money And Run," "Fly Like An Eagle" and "Jet Airliner." Their last No. 1 hit came in 1982 with "Abracadabra."
