NEW Live Album: The Steve Miller Band has marked the 40th anniversary of its iconic album, "The Joker", with the digital release of "The Joker Live". The new album - which features exclusive, unreleased tracks - was recorded on the road last year and was issued in sync with the start of a North American tour with Journey, which kicked off in Chula Vista, California.

"When several friends and colleagues reminded me that it was the 40th birthday of The Joker album, I smiled," said Miller, "and started playing the whole album's songs live again - and at the end of the last tour realized we had a great new record that we wanted to share with our fans. We hope you like it as much as we did playing and recording it.

Journey, the Steve Miller Band and Tower of Power closed out their 2014 summer tour together in Irvine, California, on a balmy Saturday night. Traveling to more than 30 cities in roughly two and half months, the tour came full circle, having opened on May 15 at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, California — a two-hour drive south from Irvine. It was billed as the “San Francisco Fest,” and it was the first time all three had embarked on the road together. The sold-out audience crammed into the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater is a sign they should consider doing more shows. Maybe next summer.  link to article
