Steve Miller Rocks Kenny Chesney Concert in Oakland
“I heard they were going to do one of my tunes, and I figured I should come over and do it with him,” Steve says.
Kenny Chesney, playing to a packed stadium Sunday night (July 15) in Oakland, Calif., told the crowd, "It's always great to get to play music with someone who was one of your heroes."
And Steve Miller came onto the stage, hugged Kenny and kicked into the 1976 classic "Rock'n Me." But that's not all. Steve stayed onstage for a second song, and introduced it this way, according to Kenny's website:
"You know, one of the nicest things an artist can do is share his stage with another artist. Kenny has always been so generous that way. I heard they were going to do one of my tunes, and I figured I should come over and do it with him."
And Kenny and Steve did Steve's 1974 No. 1 smash "The Joker," with Kenny changing some lyrics to Come on, California, we're gonna show you a good time.
