Two legendary rock forces of the 1970s Peter Frampton and Steve Miller are teaming up for a summer tour.
"Steve has already asked if I will come and jam on a few tunes during his set. 'YES PLEASE!' was my very quick answer!," Frampton said in a statement. "Music is all about having fun and playing from the heart. I can guarantee you much fun will be had by all on this tour."
Miller returned the compliment: "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."
Last year, Frampton released "Acoustic Classics," featuring unplugged versions of his hits. Last year also marked the 40th anniversary of "Frampton Comes Alive!," his landmark double album that featured such classic songs as "Show Me the Way" and "Baby, I Love Your Way."
The Steve Miller Band is renowned for such hits as "Living in the U.S.A.," "The Joker," "Take the Money and Run," "Rock'n Me," "Fly Like an Eagle," "Jet Airliner," "Jungle Love" and "Abracacabra."
Information on tickets will be announced soon.
