This year, Miller aficionados will be regaled not only with powerful sets from both the SMB and Frampton’s band, but also by the highlight of Miller bringing Frampton onstage mid-set to create some of the most compelling jamming of the season."Music is ethereal it moves back and forth between the past and the future. I'm very excited to announce that 2018 is our 50th anniversary of recording and touring together as the Steve Miller Band and we plan to travel between the psychedelic sixties through the future with a vengeance," 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. Peter Frampton and I enjoyed last summer. There is so much to explore and we are really looking forward.” Frampton adds, "Having had such a fantastic tour together last summer, Steve and I decided to keep going this year! Jamming together each night during Steve's set is one of my favorite moments of the evening. Can't wait to get back out there."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).
