Michael McDonald, the former Doobie Brothers frontman and Steely Dan collaborator, has added several winter dates to his North American fall tour. McDonald starts his tour September 9th at LouFest in St. Louis, MO, before seeing a glimpse of the South, then heads north to Canada for a pair of shows September 14th and 15th. McDonald will then play shows throughout the Northeast, including a 10-night run at NYC’s Cafe Carlyle, before eventually ending up close to where he started, with a tour-closing date on December 21st at the Showplace Theatre in Norman, Oklahoma.

McDonald’s tour is in support of his forthcoming Christmas-themed album, Season of Peace: The Christmas Collection, due out October 12th via BMG. The album is a collection of McDonald playing his favorite Christmas tunes, including a recording of “Winter Wonderland” featuring special guest Jake Shimabukuro, the mindblowing ukelele virtuoso. Classics “White Winter/ Winter Wonderland”, “Oh Holy Night”, “Christmas on the Bayou”, and “Children Go Where I Send Thee” appear on the album. For a full list of McDonald’s upcoming tour dates and ticket information head to his website.

McDonald recently recorded with frequent collaborator Kenny Loggins, and badass bassist Thundercat, on the 2017 hit Thundercat single, “Show You The Way”. Watch the official Thundercat video for “Show You The Way” featuring Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins below.
