The Doobie Brothers announce their first ever full-album performances, on two historic nights in New York City at The Beacon Theatre, November 15 and 16, 2018. The band will perform Toulouse Street plus select hits on Thursday, November 15, and The Captain and Me plus select hits on Friday, November 16. This is definitive Doobies at their most powerful, and fans will delight in hearing the deep cuts, some of which the band has never played live in concert. These shows mark the first time The Doobie Brothers have performed at the Beacon Theatre in 25 years. The Beacon Theatre is located at 2124 Broadway, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Tickets for both shows go on sale July 23, 2018 and are available via Ticketmaster.com.
Platinum-selling, Toulouse Street (1972), launched The Doobie Brothers to stardom with the hits “Listen to The Music” “Rockin’ Down the Highway” and “Jesus is Just Alright.”
Double-platinum selling, The Captain and Me (1973), was the band’s third studio album, producing the hits “Long Train Runnin’,” “China Grove,” and fan favorites “South City Midnight Lady” and “Without You.”
These back-to-back classic albums represent one of the greatest one-two vinyl punches of the 1970s; the LPs that put the Doobies on the map and on the path as one of the most iconic bands of their generation. Many of the songs on both of these albums are still played every day on the radio, a testament to the timelessness of the music. These historic performances will no doubt go down as some of the most important shows the band has ever played, right up there with the classic 1975 Bill Graham S.N.A.C.K. concert in San Francisco to the 1979 No Nukes shows at Madison Square Garden.
“We are excited to be returning to The Beacon Theatre and to have the chance to perform these albums for our fans in such an intimate setting. Playing these tracks live that we haven’t played since we recorded them is going to be an undertaking we are looking forward to,” adds The Doobie Brothers.
The Doobie Brothers, who have sold more than 48 million albums and won four GRAMMY® Awards, just completed a 30+ city co-headlining Summer of Living Dangerously Tour with Steely Dan and are performing two stadium shows with the Eagles this fall.
