Steve Miller Band plays Harveys Arena on Aug. 18

The Steve Miller Band will perform at the Lake Tahoe Summer Concert Series at Harveys Outdoor Arena on Thursday, Aug. 18, it was announced today.

Steve Miller @ Harvys Outdoor Arena 7-30-2014-115-LMiller is perhaps the most familiar artist other than Sammy Hagar who has played in the series. He also appeared here in 2011, 2013 and 2014.

“Steve Miller is just a great act and he lives nearby in the Bay Area,” said John Packer, the entertainment spokesman for Harveys and Harrah’s. “We’ll be announcing his support a little later.”

Miller began his career in Chicago playing blues, including collaborations with Paul Butterfield. After he moved to the Bay Area he played 120 shows at the Fillmore Auditorium promoted by Bill Graham. He had a slew of Top 40 singles in the 1970s.

One recording session led to radio play ubiquity for Miller when he made the tracks for the albums “Fly Like an Eagle” released in 1976 and “Book of Dreams” which came out in 1977. Singles from those albums included “Fly Like An Eagle,” “Rock’n Me,” “Take the Money and Run,” “Jet Airliner” and “Jungle Love.”

“It’s amazing how many hits he has,” Packer said. “Until you see his show you forget. He plays them all in his show.

Tickets, which go on sale at 10 a.m. March 4, are $139.50 for ground level seats and $39.50 for bleachers.

History indicates the opener will be well known. Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers opened for Miller in 2013, and in 2011 it was Dave Mason.

Tickets went on sale today for the reggae band Slightly Stoopid, which plays on July 2.

Peter Gabriel and Sting will appear Friday, July 15, a show that sold out in hours, and Australian country artist Keith Urban will be here Wednesday, July 27, and Friday, July 29.

Packer said another show has been confirmed and will be announced soon.
