The Steve Miller Band is on a comeback that includes a show at the Archie Browning Sports Centre on June 30.

The Joker turns 40

An evening with Steve Miller Band is on Sunday, June 30 at the Archie Browning Sports Centre in Esquimalt

He’s a picker, he’s a grinner, he’s a lover and he’s a sinner – and yes, Steve Miller is coming to Victoria with his singular sound.

Miller has come a long way from The Joker, his U.S. platinum selling album, in the last 40 years.

The band formed in 1968, but didn’t find fame until the release of The Joker in late 1973, which was followed up by band’s two most successful studio albums, the 1976 release Fly Like an Eagle and 1977’s Book of Dreams.

The announcement of the 2013 tour by the Steve Miller Band follows four of the most productive years in Miller’s illustrious career.

Miller has released two new albums – the 2010 number one blues album, Bingo, and its successor, Let Your Hair Down – the first new Steve Miller Band records in 18 years.

An evening with Steve Miller Band is on Sunday, June 30 at the Archie Browning Sports Centre in Esquimalt at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets for the show are available online at; or call the High Tide box office at 250-478-1888; Lyle’s Place 770 Yates St.; Ditch Records, 784 Fort St. and the McPherson Box Office 250-386-6121.
