The Steve Miller Band will play at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh on Monday, July 23, for the opening night concert, presented by Ford Motor Company.
The concert is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m., following the opening day’s air show, and is included with AirVenture admission for that day. The 60th annual edition of EAA AirVenture is July 23-29.
Steve Miller, a Wisconsin native, founded the band in San Francisco in the mid-1960s and first hit the charts big time in 1973 with the No. 1 hit “The Joker.” Since then, his group has sold more than 30 million records featuring such unforgettable hits as “Fly Like an Eagle,” the No. 1 hit “Rock’n Me,” and “Jet Airliner.”
“In less than a decade, the opening night concert at EAA AirVenture has become such a staple that one of the most common questions we receive all year is, ‘Who’s playing opening night at Oshkosh?’” said EAA President/CEO Rod Hightower. “The Steve Miller Band will put on a great show on July 23, and thanks to the support of Ford Motor Company, will get the week off to a tremendous start.”
