Steve Miller Band, Foghat,

When: Mon., Aug. 22, 7:30 p.m. 2016

The induction ceremony for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has never been known for being a particularly stiff affair — too many boozed-up old rockers in attendance. But no one expected Steve Miller to make the biggest noise at this year’s show over the likes of N.W.A. and Cheap Trick, thanks to an acceptance speech that ripped the Hall for not treating artists well. Who knew the seemingly mellow cat behind “Take The Money And Run,” “The Joker” and “Fly Like An Eagle” had it in him? After his speech, though, he still showed off his prodigious guitar skills on stage, and he’ll do the same Monday in a hits-packed set sure to please. Joining Miller’s band is hard-rock pioneers Foghat, purveyors of undeniable all-time jam “Slow Ride.”
