Two titans of classic rock, The Steve Miller Band and Peter Frampton, will be in concert at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Friday, July 20, 2018.
Steve Miller was a mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended American culture in the late ‘60s. With albums like “Children of the Future”, “Sailor”, and “Brave New World”, Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously articulated a compelling vision of what music – and society – could be in the years to come. Then, in the ‘70s, Miller crafted a brand of rock ‘n’ roll music that was polished, exciting, and irresistible, and that has dominated radio through today. Hit followed hit in what seemed like an endless flow: “The Joker”, “Livin’ in the USA”, “Take the Money and Run”, “Rock’n Me”, “Fly Like an Eagle”, “Jet Airliner”, “Jungle Love”, and “Abracadabra” among them. To this day, these songs are instantly recognizable when they come on the radio and impossible not to sing along with.
Peter Frampton remains one of the most celebrated artists and guitarists in rock history. At 16, he was lead singer and guitarist for British band the Herd. At 18, he co-founded one of the first super groups, seminal rock act Humble Pie. His session work includes such legendary artists as George Harrison, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ringo Starr, John Entwistle and many others. His fifth solo album, the electrifying “Frampton Comes Alive!”, is one of the top-selling live records of all time.
Doors 5:30pm / Show 7:00pm
