Steve Miller Band, Peter Frampton Plot Summer Tour

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and “Show Me the Way” guitarist team for 32-date jaunt

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Steve Miller Band will hit the road this summer with special guest Peter Frampton for a 32-date trek.

The jaunt launches June 15th in Holmdel, New Jersey and stretches from Florida to Washington State before concluding two months later in Murphys, California on August 13th.

In a statement, Miller praised Frampton, a frequent tourmate over the past five decades. “Peter and I first met at Olympic studios in London in the late Sixties when we were both just starting our recording careers. He was a wonderful guitarist and songwriter then and he is even more so today. Over the years, we’ve played together in venues from theatres to football stadiums and everything in between,” Miller said.

“He always sets the musical bar high, his band always knocks me out and I’m thrilled we are going to spend the summer together doing a great run of concerts. This is the kind of quality and talent we both strive to present and I’m looking forward to a summer of great music, exceptional performances and fun. Peter is remarkable musician.”

“Steve Miller was in a recording studio vocal booth stacking incredible harmonies the first time we met in London, circa 1970,” Frampton said in a statement. “From that moment on, I have been a huge admirer of his multiple talents: singing, writing and of course his amazing guitar playing.”

Miller was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016 and, soon after the ceremony, notably lashed out at Rock Hall organizers for the way he was treated leading up to and during the event.

“The whole process needs to be changed from the top to the bottom,” Miller told Rolling Stone after the induction ceremony. “Starting from who you can invite, what you can do, how long you can play, what you can say. The whole thing is sort of an amateur production and doing this is harder than doing a 20-city tour.”

Miller also called the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a “private boys’ club” of “fucking gangsters and crooks” and lamented how the Black Keys, a group he never met, inducted him into the Rock Hall.

“I never was introduced to the Black Keys,” Miller told Howard Stern. “I didn’t know who they were personally. I walked in through security, and there’s this guy [Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach] looking at me, making goo-goo eyes at me or something. I walk up to him, and I go, ‘What are you doing tonight?’ And he says, ‘I’m reading your speech.’ I say, ‘Oh, great. I can’t wait to get the fuck out of here.’ And I didn’t know who he was!”
