The '70s hitmaker Steve Miller is bringing his classic band to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater on Feb. 13. Tickets to see the space cowboy (though some people call him Maurice) are $49.50-$89.50 and go on sale Dec. 1 at the hall's ticket office and rutheckerdhall.com.
Miller is coming off three of the busiest, most productive years in his career. He was the headliner chosen to inaugurate the new $2.5 million TV home of Austin City Limits and he collaborated with country star Kenny Chesney on the Country Music Television special, Crossroads.
He released not one, but two new albums – the 2010 blues album, Bingo that hit No. 1 on the blues charts, and its successor, Let Your Hair Down. The two albums featured artwork by noted Pink Floyd artist Storm Thorgerson and the final recordings of longtime Steve Miller Band member Norton Buffalo, who died from cancer in October 2009.
Miller's trademark blues-rock sound made him one of the key artists in classic rock radio, selling more than 30 million records in a 40-year career (The Joker, Fly Like an Eagle, Abracadabra).
