The Doobie Brothers have just rolled out three new Midwest stops to the band's sprawling 50th anniversary tour. New dates now on the books include August 24th at Milwaukee, Wisconsin's BMO Harris Pavilion; August 26th at Green Bay, Wisconsin's Resch Center Expo Pavilion; and August 28th at Moline, Illinois' TaxSlayer Center.

The band's long-delayed 50th anniversary tour will feature Michael McDonald back on keyboards alongside bandmates Tom Johnston, Pat Simmons, and John McFee.

Michael McDonald told us he's always considered himself a Doobie Brother and still loves his former bandmates deeply: “I take a certain amount of pride that we had our share of band disputes, y'know, throwing furniture at each other backstage, and all that (like) bands do — y'know, in the crazy days. But it was always important to remember that we were friends first and I think that's what we've walked away with. It's probably more valuable than ten-times greater success monetarily or record sales-wise. We really, y'know, got through it, intact as friends, y'know? And I think we all kind of hang on to that with a. . . put a certain amount of value on that.”
