The Tobin Center is hosting a major classic rock reunion tour for the 2022 gala

The Doobie Brothers with Michael McDonald will headline the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts this fall.

The concert is part of the band’s 50th anniversary US tour. This is the first time in over 25 years that the Doobie Brothers have toured with McDonald’s as part of the band. He left the group in 1982 to embark on a successful solo career.

In many cities, the tour plays amphitheaters with a capacity of 20,000 or more. The Tobin Center can accommodate 1,750 people.

“We always shoot for the underplay, the artists who would typically play in a bigger space,” said Aaron Zimmerman, Tobin Center’s vice president of programming.

The October 8 performance marks the return of the centre’s annual fundraiser, which has been suspended since Gladys Knight’s performance in 2019 due to the pandemic.

Tickets range from $99 to $1,000 at tobincenter.org, at the box office, or by calling 210-223-8624.

Packages including a pre-show dinner and an after-show party can only be purchased over the phone.

Proceeds will go to the Tobin Center’s Generation Next educational initiatives, which include teacher training, field trips and sensory productions.

The Doobie Brothers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2020. Their hits include “China Grove”, “Black Water”, “What a Fool Believes”, “Listen to the Music” and “Jesus is Just Alright with Me “. .”

Their gig follows previous headliners Paul McCartney, Lionel Richie, Dolly Parton, Steven Tyler, Paula Abdul and Knight.
