Finally after months of anticipation, the Steve Miller Band will be rockin' out at the Fox Theater Sunday night.
This is a pretty big deal because the last time the Steve Miller Band were here in Bako they played a sold out show, with Joe Cocker as opener, at the Rabaobank Arena.
But this time around it's the Steve Miller Band at the much smaller venue of the Fox.
As far as I know there is no opener, so be sure and get there on time so you don't miss any of the show.
Show time is 8pm.
The concert is almost sold out, but there are still some decent seats left in the Upper Balcony area.
Just hit Vallitix.com and get them while they last.
And congrats to all of our loyal Fox Rockers who won Steve Miller Band concert tickets.
See ya there!
The great Blues Legend Muddy Waters once sang the song "The Blues Had A Baby And They Named It Rock n Roll."
And the most famous Blues Man ever could be called the Godfather of Rock n Roll.

Back in the '60's Super Groups like Cream and CSN&Y were all the rage.
But there was one Super Group that would've set the music world on fire but never came to pass.
Who would've been in this Super Group?
How about Jimi Hendrix, Jazz Legends Miles Davis and Tony Williams and....Paul McCartney?!?
Jimi and Miles fans have long known that they were making plans to record together in the year before Jimi's sudden death in 1970.
But less attention has been paid to the bass player they were trying to recruit: Paul McCartney.
This little know fact was revealed in a telegram that Jimi sent to Paul at The Beatles' Apple Records in London on Oct. 21, 1969.
It read as follows: (in those days "stop" was used as a period in telegrams)
"We are recording an LP together this weekend how about coming in to play bass stop call Alan Douglas 212-581-2212 Peace Jimi Hendrix Miles Davis Tony Williams stop"
The telegram has been part of the Hard Rock Cafe memorabilia collection since it was purchased at auction in 1995.
But it has gained attention recently with the release of Jimi's last studio recordings "People, Hell & Angels,".
The telegram raises more questions than it answers because it's not clear if Paul was even aware of the invitation to join Jimi's Super Group.
According to a Beatle aide, Paul was then on vacation and not expected back for another two weeks.
Most music experts agree that Miles Davis maybe would not have been comfortable with Paul's Pop Rock approach.
In his autobiography, Miles said that by 1968 he was listening to James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone and Jimi, but never mentions Paul or The Beatles.
But it sure would've been cool to hear them give it a go wouldn't it?
After transforming from the Prince of Darkness to goofy dad on the TV show "The Osbournes" Ozzy is going back to the small screen as his former persona.
The upcoming season 13 finale of the TV show "CSI" is going to rock with a Heavy Metal cameo by Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath.
The CSI team is on the hunt for who's behind a string of murders, and the investigation leads straight to a Black Sabbath concert, where band members Ozzy, Tony Iommi (guitarist), and Geezer Butler (bassist) are performing their new single, "End of the Beginning," from their album "13".
Ozzy hasn't made many TV appearances since his hit reality show, "The Osbournes," went off the air in 2005, but he hasn't really taken a break from rocking out.
He appeared at Ozzfest 2010, and the festival is being revived this year with a first time special leg at Ozzfest in Japan as part of Sabbath's worldwide tour starting in the U.S. in July 2013.
CSI's season 13 finale is on this Wednesday night on CBS.
