Five-time Grammy-winning singer and songwriter Michael McDonald belts out songs with blue-eyed soul from his illustrious career, spanning classic Doobie Brothers hits, Motown covers, and a new batch of pop tunes. Known for singing backup for jazz-rock outfit Steely Dan and reversing trash trucks around the nation, McDonald impresses audiences with a timeless sound, expressive delivery, and mastery of the electric piano. Opening act Boz Scaggs, an original member of the Steve Miller Band, gained fame in the 1970s with top 20 hits such as "Lowdown" and "Lido Shuffle," all recorded at home in his in-shower studio.
Celebrity Theatre's distinctive in-the-round construction keeps show-goers close to the action, with no seat more than 70 feet from the performers. The slowly rotating stage ensures each audience member can bask in singers' flashing smiles and search the backs of their heads for bonus flashing smiles.
