Doobie Classics and Christmas Classics

Genesee Theatre - Waukegan

I bought tickets so that me and my two sisters can enjoy an evening of Doobie Brothers classics as well as Christmas classics. We MORE than enjoyed the concert! Michael McDonald was awesome! He spoke in between each song and played many hits for two hours! I couldn’t believe how great his voice sounded! And the acoustics in the Genesee theater were magnificent! When is he coming back??

Terrific Concert. Tremendous venue.

Genesee Theatre - Waukegan

We enjoyed the concert and the venue. One major problems is that the cell phone pictures were very intrusive and the ushers only stopped some use. The problem was the people taking the most video and holding up their phones and blocking the view were right next to the stage. I saw as much of Michael McDonald as I did of one guys phone screen.

Obviously something went wrong backstage.

Tennessee Theatre - Knoxville

His son and girlfriend came out and played for 10 minutes left to come back with the four but it took over 30 minutes to see someone again. When McDonald did play it was new unrecognizable music the we did not know.

Too LOUD! The Bass was up so high it was pounding in your chest, and we couldn’t hear anything else. We left after 5 songs. Terrible!

Paramont 9-23

The Paramount - Huntington

Excellent Concert. Have seen Michael many times. This was one of the better ones. His setlist mixed a good blend of all the old hits, Motown, a few slow ones and maybe 2-3 new. He had the right band members. They always change from year to year except Bernie, but the sax guy was awesome as was Ms. Renee.. Saw Mike last yr here in July 2017 but the band members were different and not as good, no drea renee and his setlist was awful. This was a great one

Biography

MICHAEL MCDONALD IN CONCERT:

Ever since his 1982 solo debut, Michael McDonald has consistently dominated soft rock airwaves with his rich baritone voice and soulful performances. McDonald's powerhouse live shows are a veritable trip back in time, combining beloved hits like "I Keep Forgettin' (Every Time You're Near)" with classic material from his days with the Doobie Brothers. A distinguished performer with undeniable soul, McDonald never fails to bring the house down, and his 2014 tour dates will be no different.

BACKGROUND SNAPSHOT:

Born in St. Louis, McDonald played in several bands in high school before heading out to Los Angeles to pursue music professionally. By the mid-'70s, he had landed himself a gig playing with jazz rock legends Steely Dan, appearing on several of their most influential albums including 1977's Aja and 1980's Gaucho. Around the same time, he was recruited by the Doobie Brothers for a national tour, going on to become a full-time member of the band as lead vocalist on classic recordings like "Takin' it to the Streets" and "What a Fool Believes." Following the Doobie's farewell tour, McDonald released his 1982 solo debut If That's What It Takes, a Top 10 hit on both the Billboard 200 and R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. With eight studio albums and an extensive list of acclaimed collaborations under his belt, McDonald has plenty of hits to choose from as he puts together the setlists for his 2014 tour. 

FANS WHO BOUGHT TICKETS SAY:

"He was absolutely wonderful as was his band and singers accompanying him. His voice was impeccable and just as awesome as it is on all of his recorded music."

"The performance was exceptional. They sounded terrific and the setlist was a blend of solid hits and several covers that meshed perfectly. The audience was totally engaged and McDonald really hit it out of the park."

"The guy still has it! Nice mix of Doobie days, and his own twist on some Motown standards. The musicians and female vocalist complimenting him were fantastic in their own right."
