On June 29th, the night will be filled with classic rock drifting through the hills of Blossom Music Center as The Doobie Brothers will be making a stop on The San Francisco Fest Tour along with Journey and Dave Mason.
Founded in 1970 by John Hartman, Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons, the Doobie’s started to gain popularity with their first radio hit “Listen to the Music” in 1972. The hits kept coming as the band went on to have two number one singles (“Black Water,” “What A Fool Believes”) and eight other top 20 hits and six platinum selling albums over the next twenty years.
Today, the band is led by original members Johnston and Simmon as well as long time guitarist John McFee. Fans can expect to hear most of the classic songs from the ‘70s and ‘80s that made the Doobie Brothers famous.
Joining The Doobie Brothers on the bill is another San Francisco Bay area band, Journey. Two original members: Neil Schon (guitars) and Ross Valory (bass) will be joined by two other band mates, Jonathan Cain (keyboards) and Steve Smith (drums) that played on Journey’s biggest selling albums Escape and Frontiers. Rounding out the group on vocals will be Arnel Pineda.
Opening the show will be Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Dave Mason formally of Traffic. It’s hard to believe that Mr. Mason wrote ”Feelin’ Alright” at the age of 19 and also went on to play rhythm guitar on Jimi Hendrix’s version of “All Along the Watchtower.”
Come out and spend a summer evening under the stars at Blossom on June 29 to hear some great classic rock by three incredible artists. Tickets are available at the Blossom Box Office and all Ticketmaster locations and http://www.ticketmaster.com
