Steve Miller has announced the first dates of his 2012 tour.  The band will start in Dana Point, California on May 20th and continue on a string of dates through September.  More dates could be added.  The closest the tour will get to Texas is September 28th, with a stop at the Hard Rock Casino in Catoosa, Oklahoma near Tulsa.  That show is only about a 7 hour drive from us, and it's a cool venue.  Their concert arena is called 'The Joint'.  And of course, being a Hard Rock location, you can check out all sorts of rock memorabilia on display, and maybe pull a few slots too.
