Doobie Brothers Reunite With Michael McDonald for Tour To Celebrate The Bands’ 50th Anniversary

20 November 2019 Music News Recommends


The  Doobie Brothers are reuniting with  Michael McDonald who’ll front the band for a 50th anniversary tour next year. You can see the currently-announced dates below.

It marks the first time in nearly 25 years that McDonald, Tom Johnston, Patrick Simmons and John McFee will hit the road together. The 30-date tour was confirmed after McDonald made a surprise guest appearance at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville last night (Nov. 18), joining the Doobies for an encore rendition of classic track “Takin’ It To the Streets,” from their debut album with him.

Tom Johnston said of the reunion:

We’re truly excited about our 50th anniversary tour, as it’s a celebration of the band’s entire history,”. “We’ll be performing songs from our full catalog, as well as new music.”

Simmons also said; the Doobies – who currently only perform one song from the McDonald era – had no problems with him and would “jump at the chance” of a reunion. For his part, McDonald last year said: “Pat Simmons and I always had a great blend together. … On a lot of the Doobie Brothers stuff, Pat and I always seemed to blend together for backgrounds.”
