Michael McDonald, Boz Scaggs headed to Eagle for outdoor summer concert

Blue-eyed soul singer Michael McDonald is headed to Eagle River Pavilion along with Boz Scaggs for a summer double bill Sept. 18.

Based on the massive popularity of the Doobie Brothers show at the Western Idaho Fair last year, this concert should be a hot ticket, particularly with baby boomers.

McDonald has an instantly recognizable voice. He hasn’t been a member of the Doobies since 1982, but he sang some of their most memorable hits — “Takin’ It to the Streets,” “Minute by Minute” and “What a Fool Believes.” He went on to a lasting solo career that spawned smashes such as “I Keep Forgettin’” — check out the video below, dude's band is da bomb — to the Kenny Loggins’ duet “This is It.”

Scaggs as a co-headliner is a major bonus. He pumped out some excellent radio cuts in the 1970s such as the silky smooth “Lowdown” and cathartic “Lido Shuffle.”

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. May 13 at ICTickets for $39.50 lawn, $59.50 reserved and $99.50 VIP.

Another great show announced at Eagle River Pavilion!!

Going to be a busy summer ahead... looking forward to seeing all these great artists!!!!

Again I'll never get there anyway and I really like Boz Scaggs.

I've seen Michael and the Doobies twice.


You must be lucky to be in the state I was born in!


That's a couple of hundred bucks that I won't mind spending.

Good days

In the early 70's doobie brothers lived a couple of doors down from me in Portland and we used to listen to them jam out on their front steps.
