The Steve Miller Band‘s 2016 itinerary kicks off with a February 28 concert in Panama City, Florida, and will be followed be three more shows in the Sunshine State.

Then, after Miller gets inducted into the Rock Hall on April 8 in Brooklyn, New York, he and his band will head west for a trio of mid-April gigs.  Fans can expect many more shows to be added to the group’s schedule.
