Michael McDonald will reunite with The Doobie Brothers to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary.
Singer-guitarists Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons, multi-instrumentalist John McFee and singer-keyboardist McDonald will tour together for the first time in nearly a quarter of a century for a summer jaunt that kicks off June 9 in Florida.
The anniversary reunion will hit Atlanta early in the run, at 7 p.m. June 14 at Ameris Bank Amphitheatre in Alpharetta.
Tickets for the general public will go on sale at 10 a.m. Dec. 6. Prior to that are a slew of pre-sales that you can peruse here.
McDonald joined the band in 1975 and left in 1982 to forge a successful solo career (“Sweet Freedom,” “I Keep Forgettin’ [Every Time You’re Near],” “On My Own” with Patti LaBelle). During his Doobies tenure, he appeared on four albums that included the hits “What a Fool Believes” and “Minute By Minute.”
He’s performed with the band on many occasions throughout the years.
