The Steve Miller Band has unveiled a spring and summer itinerary that will take the classic rockers to theaters, arenas and casinos throughout North America through July.
The roadwork gets off to a slow but significant start with a Nashville concert alongside Kenny Chesney that will take place March 2 and air in the near future as part of the "CMT Crossroads" series.
Following a two-month break, the band will get down to business beginning May 21 in Henderson, NV, kicking off a 21-date outing that crosses the continent through a July 31 performance in Orange Beach, AL.

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."
