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.
