Steve Miller Band
Steve Miller Band
Call him the Gangster of Love. Call him Maurice. You can even call him the The Joker or
Space Cowboy. Everybody knows that Steve Miller speaks the pompitus of love.
The announcement of the 2013 touring season by the Steve Miller Band follows four of
the most busy, productive years in the long, illustrious career of Steve Miller, an artist at
the peak of his powers, in demand around the world, whether returning for his second
tour of Europe in two years last year or headed off on his New Zealand Australia tour in
spring 2013.

Miller’s broad appeal crosses boundaries, from headlining the 2011 opening of the new
$2.5 million TV home of “Austin City Limits” to collaborating with country superstar
Kenny Chesney on the Country Music Television special, “Crossroads.” His triumphant 2012 return to Europe was highlighted by a smashing, sold out, critically-acclaimed performance at London’s historic Roundhouse. He starts the 2013 touring season, after a handful of warm-up dates in Florida, with the band’s appearances in New Zealand and Australia to follow.

Miller has released not one, but two new albums – the 2010 number one blues
album,“Bingo,” and its successor, “Let Your Hair Down” – the first new Steve Miller
Band records in eighteen years (“cause for celebration,” said the Huffington Post). The
two albums featured artwork by noted Pink Floyd artist Storm Thorgerson and the final
recordings of longtime Steve Miller Band member Norton Buffalo, Miller’s “partner in
harmony” for thirty-three years, who died from cancer in October 2009.

In 2010, Miller went back to Europe for the first time in more than twenty-five years for
a hugely successful round of dates culminating in a sold out Royal Albert Hall concert in
London, before rock royalty such as Jimmy Page and David Gilmour, raising demand for
his return last year to Europe, where Demon Records released new editions in 2011-12
of almost the entire Steve Miller Band album catalog on digipak CDs that won praise
from reviewers, bloggers and fans alike.

One of rock music’s all-time greats, the Steve Miller Band has sold more than 30 million
records in a career spanning more than 40 years. His trademark blues-rock sound made
him one of the key artists in classic rock radio. The Steve Miller Band is brand name
rock that millions have come to trust.
