Space Cowboy or Gangster of Love? Either way, he’s a picker, a grinner, a lover and a sinner. And on Wednesday, he played his music in his sun, continuing into the darkness.
The Steve Miller Band — known for such 1970s and early ’80s hits as “The Joker,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jet Airliner” and “Abracadabra” — played Wednesday evening at Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center, the fourth concert in CMAC’s summer season.
Also taking the stage was fellow Seventies hitmaker Peter Frampton, whose 1976 live album “Frampton Comes Alive!” was a surprise smash that sold more than 8 million copies in the United States. That proved to be the peak for Frampton, but he remains a fixture on classic-rock radio with such tunes as “Show Me the Way” and “Baby I Love Your Way.”
CMAC takes a weeklong break before hosting its next show, the Southern rock and alt-country of Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit next Thursday, June 29, with opening act Iron & Wine. Isbell is a former member of the Drive-By Truckers.
