Live/Concert

Boz Scaggs & Michael McDonald

When: Tue., July 11, 7:30 p.m. 2017

Boz Scaggs & Michael McDonald will perform at Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre at Freedom Hill on Tuesday, July 11 at 7:30 p.m.

Fans who have followed Scaggs’ remarkable career dating back to the late `60s with the Steve Miller Band; his solo triumphs with such classic albums as Silk Degrees (1976) and Middle Man (1980); and the splendid assurance of late-period high points like Some Change (1994) and Dig (2001), will instantly recognize Scaggs’ characteristically deft touch as a singer. He brings a sly drawl to a funky workout like Li’l Millet and the Creoles’ “Rich Woman,” a conversational intimacy to Bobby Charles’s “Small Town Talk,” and an elegant delicacy to the Impressions’ “I’m So Proud.” He easily negotiates the Latin flavoring of “Last Tango on 16th Street” and “I Want to See You,” both written by San Francisco bluesman (and longtime Scaggs compatriot) Jack Walroth. His soul is effortless and deeply felt, never making a show of itself, but unmistakably evident in every lyric he delivers.

Price: $99.50, $75, $49.50 and $35 Crest Ford pavilion and $30 Kroger lawn
