More Info

Steve Miller Band: Its hard to believe that 45 years have passed since The Steve Miller Band was conceived in San Francisco. During those 45 years, the band has become the archetype for classic rock. Hits like "The Joker," and "Fly Like An Eagle," have kept the band in heavy rotation on classic rock radio for decades now. Steve Miller tour dates are scheduled throughout the 2011 concert season.

After debuting their bluesy sound in Chicago during the late sixties, the band was quickly signed to Capitol Records. They recorded their debut the following year, "Children of the Future," which was released to mediocre sales in 1967. They had more luck with their sophomore album, "Sailor," which reached #24 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and marked the end of Boz Scaggs' contributions to Steve Miller records. The band continued to release material to moderate commercial success that played well to their hard rock oriented audience.

The Steve Miller band reached mainstream success with their 1973 release, "The Joker," which spawned the #1 hit single of the same name. The album marked the band's entrance into a more melodic-blues oriented sound with Steve Miller becoming the self-appointed "Space Cowboy." The rhythms kept on rollin', and in 1976 the band released their most commercially successful studio album to date. The band's ninth album, "Fly Like an Eagle," served up the hit singles, "Rock'n Me," and "Take the Money and Run." The band released subsequent albums including "Book of Dreams," and 1982's "Abracadra," whose title track gave Steve Miller his last #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Subsequently, the band has focused more on touring than on recording new material. The Steve Miller Band concert schedule during the 1980s and 1990s consisted mostly of national headlining tours that attracted hoards of younger fans just discovering his music.

The band's greatest commercial success is their Greatest Hits (1974-1978) album which has been awarded diamond status and achieved sales of more than thirteen million albums! "Greatest Hits" ranks as one of the top fifty best selling albums of all time and solidified their status as classic rock icons. With over four decades of recording and touring, the Steve Miller Band concert dates have plenty of material to go on.

More recently, the band has recorded, "Bingo!," which is a cover album of R&B classics released in 2010. The album marks the band's first album of new material in seventeen years! Steve Miller has managed to keep himself busy in the meantime with a hectic touring schedule and a stint as Artist in Residence at the USC Thornton School of Music where he teaches music. For their contribution to the recording industry, the Steve Miller Band also has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! Don't miss out on these living legends when they come to your area.

Peter Frampton: With a career spanning forty years and including sold-out tour dates and over a dozen hit albums, Peter Frampton has earned a place as a rock icon. After rising to fame with the groups The Herd and Humble Pie, Frampton became infamous through acclaimed tour dates and his masterful use of the talk box. Arguably his most successful and groundbreaking album was 1976's Frampton Comes Alive!, which is celebrating a 35th anniversary this year. In honor of the album's lasting legacy, Peter Frampton has a number of tour dates in 2011 where he'll play the album in its entirety to the delight of huge audiences.

Peter Frampton's interest in music began at a young age, becoming the lead singer and guitarist for The Herd at the age of 16. The popularity made Frampton a teen idol, but he left the group two years later and formed Humble Pie with Small Faces alum Steve Marriott. Frampton recorded five albums and performed numerous tour dates with Humble Pie before leaving to pursue a solo career in 1971. His first few solo albums were well received, scoring a hit with "Do You Feel Like We Do." It was Frampton in 1975 that brought the artist solo success with "Show Me the Way" and "Baby, I Love Your Way", as well as showcasing his expert guitar work. It wasn't until these hit singles were featured on the double live album, Frampton Comes Alive!, that Peter Frampton was launched into superstardom

Frampton has continued to release great albums, but recognizes his fans' love for Frampton Comes Alive!. Peter Frampton's kindness towards his fans has led to live performances of the album on 2011 tour dates, which began on July 1. The tour will visit the US, Canada, UK, and a few European nations before concluding on November 23. Don't miss this opportunity to hear Frampton Comes Alive on these 35th anniversary tour dates in 2011.

  • Former President George H.W. Bush has been hospitalized in Houston with an infection, just after attending the funeral of his wife, Barbara, a spokesman said. Jim McGrath said Monday on Twitter that the 93-year-old Bush is 'responding to treatments and appears to be recovering.' He was admitted Sunday morning to Houston Methodist Hospital after an infection spread to his blood, McGrath said. Barbara Bush was laid to rest Saturday in a ceremony attended by her husband and former presidents Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, George W. Bush and their wives, along with current first lady Melania Trump. Mrs. Bush was 92, and she and her husband had been married 73 years — the longest presidential marriage in U.S. history. George H.W. Bush uses a wheelchair and an electric scooter for mobility after developing a form of Parkinson's disease, and he has needed hospital treatment several times in recent years for respiratory problems. He attended the funeral wearing a pair of knitted socks decorated in blue, red and yellow books — a tribute to his late wife's work promoting literacy. McGrath wouldn't elaborate Monday night on the specifics of Bush's condition, saying additional updates would be issued 'as events warrant.' But he said the 41st president was eager to get well so he can get to his summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine. 'He's the most goal-oriented person on this planet,' McGrath said. Their son, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, indicated during his eulogy Saturday that his father had been hospitalized recently at the same time Barbara Bush was in the hospital for the last time. Those hospitalizations were not publicly disclosed at the time. 'I think Dad got sick on purpose so that he could be with her,' Jeb Bush said. First lady Melania Trump tweeted Monday evening that she was sending 'healing thoughts of strength, along with prayers, for President George HW Bush tonight.' On Friday, during the public viewing of Barbara Bush's casket, George H.W. Bush offered his hand to many of the around 2,500 people who walked through the church to pay their respects. A year ago this month, he spent two weeks in the hospital for treatment of pneumonia and chronic bronchitis, a constant irritation of the lining of tubes that carry air to one's lungs. His doctors said chronic bronchitis is a condition more prevalent with age and can aggravate the symptoms of pneumonia. The elder Bush was hospitalized for 16 days in January 2017 for pneumonia. During that hospital stay, which included time in intensive care, doctors inserted a breathing tube and connected him to a ventilator. He also was hospitalized in 2015 in Maine after falling at home and breaking a bone in his neck, and in December 2014 for about a week for shortness of breath. He spent Christmas 2012 in intensive care for a bronchitis-related cough and other issues. People in their 90s with Parkinson's disease are often at higher risk of pneumonia and other infections because their swallowing process can be compromised, said Dr. David Reuben, professor of geriatric medicine at the UCLA medical school in Los Angeles. 'And the stress of losing a loved one can weaken the immune system,' he said. Bacterial infections are treated with antibiotics, he said, while viral infections require other treatments. Infections that spread to the blood usually are not viral, however, he said. The prognosis for such a case would depend on a number of factors, including heart rate, blood pressure and oxygenation, Reuben said. 'The more of these parameters are abnormal, the more serious the case is,' he said. George Herbert Walker Bush served as president from 1989 to 1993. Born June 12, 1924, in Milton, Massachusetts, Bush also served as a congressman, CIA director and Ronald Reagan's vice president. ___ Associated Press reporter Terry Wallace contributed to this story from Dallas.
  • The jury that will start deliberating Bill Cosby's fate on Tuesday has heard the comedian described over the past two weeks both as a 'serial rapist' and a con artist's victim. They have seen a parade of accusers testify that the man once revered as 'America's Dad' had a secret life of drugging and violating women. And they have heard from a witness who says his chief accuser talked about framing a high-profile person to score a big payday. Now, seven men and five women who have been kept in a suburban Philadelphia hotel, away from family, friends and daily routines, will get to have their say in the first big celebrity trial of the #MeToo era. 'You now have all of the evidence,' Judge Steven O'Neill told them after Cosby's side rested on Monday without calling the 80-year-old comedian to the stand. 'Try to relax, so that you're on your game tomorrow.' Jurors could be in for a marathon. Before going off to deliberate, they will hear both sides rehash the case in lengthy closing arguments, and they will get O'Neill's instructions in the law. Cosby is charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault — all stemming from Andrea Constand's allegations that he knocked her out with three pills he called 'your friends' and molested her at his suburban Philadelphia mansion in January 2004. Each count carries a sentence of up to 10 years in prison. Cosby has said he gave Constand 1½ tablets of the over-the-counter cold and allergy medicine Benadryl to help her relax before what he called a consensual sexual encounter. The jury in Cosby's first trial weighed the evidence for five days without reaching a verdict. This time, both sides have given the retrial jury much more to consider. Prosecutors were able to call five additional accusers who testified that Cosby also drugged and violated them — including one woman who asked him through her tears, 'You remember, don't you, Mr. Cosby?' Cosby's new defense team, led by Michael Jackson lawyer Tom Mesereau, countered with a far more robust effort at stoking doubts about Constand's credibility and raising questions about whether Cosby's arrest was even legal. The defense's star witness was a former colleague of Constand who says Constand spoke of leveling false sexual assault accusations against a high-profile person for the purpose of filing a civil suit. Constand got a civil settlement of nearly $3.4 million from Cosby. Both juries also heard from Cosby himself — not on the witness stand, but via an explosive deposition he gave in 2005 and 2006 as part of Constand's civil suit against him. In it, Cosby acknowledged he gave the sedative quaaludes to women before sex in the 1970s. Cosby's lawyers devoted the last two days of their case to travel records they say prove he could not have been at his suburban Philadelphia home in January 2004. They argue that any encounter there with Constand would have happened earlier, outside the statute of limitations. Cosby's private jet records and travel itineraries produced by Cosby's lawyers do not show any flights in or out of the Philadelphia area in January 2004, but they have large gaps — a total of 17 days that month in which Cosby was not traveling, performing or taping TV appearances. District Attorney Kevin Steele noted that the records do not account for other ways Cosby could have gotten to Philadelphia. 'You can't tell us whether he got on a commercial flight,' Steele said, questioning a defense aviation expert. 'You can't tell us whether he got on a train. You can't tell us whether he got in a car and drove to Philadelphia.' The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done. ___ Follow Mike Sisak at https://twitter.com/mikesisak . ___ For more coverage visit https://www.apnews.com/tag/CosbyonTrial .
  • The traffic scandal that dragged down former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's presidential aspirations will write another chapter on Tuesday as two former associates facing prison for their roles seek to convince a federal appeals court their convictions should be overturned. Attorneys for Bill Baroni and Bridget Kelly are expected to argue in the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that prosecutors misapplied federal law to unfairly criminalize the duo's actions in the fall of 2013, when they realigned traffic lanes at the busy George Washington Bridge and caused massive traffic jams in the town of Fort Lee, New Jersey. Baroni was a top executive with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the bridge's operator, and Kelly was Christie's deputy chief of staff. He received a 24-month sentence last year; Kelly was sentenced to 18 months. Baroni's Port Authority colleague, David Wildstein, pleaded guilty and testified he conjured up the plot — and Baroni and Kelly gleefully went along — to punish Fort Lee's mayor, a Democrat who didn't endorse the Republican Christie's re-election. Christie wasn't charged and denied knowing about the plot until months later, but the negative publicity from the scandal torpedoed his presidential aspirations in the 2016 GOP primary. His account of when he knew about the scheme was contradicted during the fall 2016 trial by Kelly, Baroni, Wildstein and others. Wildstein, a former political operative and high school acquaintance of Christie's, received probation and now publishes a news website focusing on New Jersey politics from his home in Florida. Christie, now a political analyst for ABC, said last year he was 'incensed' by their conduct and characterized as 'ridiculous' the idea that he would have endorsed it. In court filings, Baroni and Kelly have argued their convictions for misapplying the property of an organization receiving federal funds — the Port Authority, in this case — should be tossed because the law targets 'diverting public property to private, personal, non-governmental uses,' something they say didn't occur. They also allege the trial judge erred when she instructed jurors that they could find the pair guilty even if they didn't believe the government proved that the plot had a political motive.
  • Walt Disney World is looking to hire more than 3,500 new workers, even offering “hiring bonuses” of up to $3,000 for some positions.  >> Read more trending news It all comes as the unions that represent 38,000 Disney workers get set to go back to the bargaining table next week.  Unionized workers have been locked in contract talks since last summer -- and since then, they’ve staged demonstrations and gone back to the bargaining table several times, but still have no deal.  'How can Disney justify giving $3,000 bonuses, when you have 19,000 plus workers making under $11 an hour?” asked Angie McKinnon, a representative of UNITE HERE LOCAL 737. Union leaders were meeting Monday afternoon as they prepare to head back to the bargaining table one week from Tuesday.  Union workers voted down Disney’s most recent offer of a 3 percent raise for most workers, with a minimum 50-cents-an-hour raise.  And union bosses are upset that Disney won’t pay a $1,000 tax-cut bonus to union members -- unless they accept that deal.  'A lot of them are still waiting on the tax, the money that Disney promised to give them from the tax cut,” said McKinnon.  “As is the case with all aspects of an employee's compensation package, federal law requires that we negotiate the payment of that bonus with the unions, which we are in the process of doing,” a Disney spokeswoman said.  As Disney now tries to hire thousands more full- and part-time cast members, the company is able to pay the hiring bonuses because the new cast members won’t be covered by the union contract until after they’re hired.
