Steve Miller Band to play the Orpheum Theatre

, Staff

The Steve Miller Band have revealed plans to hit Massachusetts this fall in support of their latest release, Let Your Hair Down. The classic rock favorites will play Boston’s Orpheum Theatre on Friday, October 14. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $49 and $69, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

Let Your Hair Down, which was released in April, follows their 2010 album Bingo!It was recorded at the same times at Bingo!, which was released 10 months earlier.

Bingo!, which was recently nominated as blues rock album of the year by the Blues Foundation, was the first studio release from the Steve Miller Band since 1993’s Wide River. Let Your Hair Down features the last recordings by harmonica virtuoso Norton Buffalo, Miller’s “partner in harmony” for thirty-three years. Buffalo has since been replaced by Jacob Peterson for the band’s live shows.

“It’s always fun,” said Miller in a video previewing the tour on his website.”We’ve made little changes here and there and improved things. Changed the set around and I think it looks better.”

Fans can expect a set of classic greatest hits alongside a handful of new tunes from Let Your Hair Down and Bingo!, and possibly even some new material.

Later this month, Miller will join California’s Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra for a pair of special performances dubbed “Rock Symphony”. The shows will take place at the Steve Miller Amphitheater at the Fender Center in Corona on September 17 and 18. The stage was named in Miller’s honor for his decade of dedicated work on behalf of the Fender Center’s Kids Rock Free music education program.
