An essential part of the city for over 300 years, the re-envisioned Seaport District will continue to function as a community anchor and “port of discovery” for the rapidly growing population of Lower Manhattan. The Howard Hughes Corporation® is leveraging the Seaport District’s history as the birthplace of innovation, as it transforms a district spanning several city blocks, creating approximately 450,000 square feet of dynamic culinary, fashion, entertainment and cultural experiences.
Highlights include Pier 17®, one of New York City’s newest iconic entertainment destinations, with a 1.5-acre rooftop that serves as a year-round community amenity and cultural and event space.

In addition to hosting the annual Summer Concert Series, The Rooftop at Pier 17 offers an array of seasonal bar and food options, and the standalone R17 restaurant which evolves with the seasons. The Pier Village, a collection of waterfront restaurants by culinary powerhouses on the first two floors of Pier 17, will welcome its first restaurant by summer 2019 with the opening of Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s seafood restaurant followed by openings from David Chang of the Momofuku Group, Helene Henderson of Malibu Farm, and Andrew Carmellini.

During those 45 years, the band has become the archetype for classic rock. Hits like "The Joker," and "Fly Like An Eagle," have kept the band in heavy rotation on classic rock radio for decades now. Steve Miller tour dates are scheduled throughout the 2011 concert season.
After debuting their bluesy sound in Chicago during the late sixties, the band was quickly signed to Capitol Records. They recorded their debut the following year, "Children of the Future," which was released to mediocre sales in 1967. They had more luck with their sophomore album, "Sailor," which reached #24 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and marked the end of Boz Scaggs' contributions to Steve Miller records. The band continued to release material to moderate commercial success that played well to their hard rock oriented audience.
The Steve Miller band reached mainstream success with their 1973 release, "The Joker," which spawned the #1 hit single of the same name. The album marked the band's entrance into a more melodic-blues oriented sound with Steve Miller becoming the self-appointed "Space Cowboy." The rhythms kept on rollin', and in 1976 the band released their most commercially successful studio album to date. The band's ninth album, "Fly Like an Eagle," served up the hit singles, "Rock'n Me," and "Take the Money and Run." The band released subsequent albums including "Book of Dreams," and 1982's "Abracadra," whose title track gave Steve Miller his last #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Subsequently, the band has focused more on touring than on recording new material. The Steve Miller Band concert schedule during the 1980s and 1990s consisted mostly of national headlining tours that attracted hoards of younger fans just discovering his music.
The band's greatest commercial success is their Greatest Hits (1974-1978) album which has been awarded diamond status and achieved sales of more than thirteen million albums! "Greatest Hits" ranks as one of the top fifty best selling albums of all time and solidified their status as classic rock icons. With over four decades of recording and touring, the Steve Miller Band concert dates have plenty of material to go on.
More recently, the band has recorded, "Bingo!," which is a cover album of R&B classics released in 2010. The album marks the band's first album of new material in seventeen years! Steve Miller has managed to keep himself busy in the meantime with a hectic touring schedule and a stint as Artist in Residence at the USC Thornton School of Music where he teaches music. For their contribution to the recording industry, the Steve Miller Band also has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! Don't miss out on these living legends when they come to your area.
