Michael McDonald and Chaka Khan announce co-headlining tour

on February 05, 2019, 3:31pm

Michael McDonald is a legend in the realm of soft rock, both as a member of The Doobie Brothers and for his subsequent solo career. Chaka Khan is the undisputed Queen of Funk. Now, these two icons of their respective lanes are merging together for a nationwide tour.

Beginning this June in Huber Heights, Ohio, McDonald and Khan’s co-headlining outing carries them through Atlantic City, Houston, Portland, Saratoga, and many other cities before wrapping up in Rohnert Park, California. All told, the pair have 18 dates together, while Khan will also make an appearances at the New Orleans Jazz Festival.

The trek comes as Khan will be supporting a new album, her forthcoming 12th studio LP Hello Happiness. Last year saw McDonald release his Christmas covers album, Season of Peace, which was preceded by his 2017 LP, Wide Open. Khan notably covered The Doobie Brothers’ “You Belong To Me” with McDonald on her 2007 album Funk This, so here’s hoping they bust that one out together during these shows.
