Michael McDonald On His Reunion with The Doobie Brothers

Tuesday, November 26th

5-time Grammy winner Michael McDonald is reuniting with the Doobie Brothers for their 50th anniversary tour! He checked into the big show this morning to talk all about it.

Michael rejoins TOM JOHNSTON, PAT SIMMONS & JOHN MCFEE to tour for the first time in nearly 25 years!

They play the PNC Bank Arts Center June 29th, Jones Beach June 30th & Mohegan Sun July 2nd.

Tickets go on sale December 6th at 10am at www.TICKETMASTER.COM

McDonald was recruited by The Doobie Brothers in 1975 when Tom Johnston became ill, and was retained as a full-time member. Their most successful album was “Minute by Minute” in 1978.

He recorded some of the Doobie’s best-known songs such as "Real Love", "Takin' It to the Streets,"" "It Keeps You Runnin'" and "What a Fool Believes" (co-written by Kenny Loggins)

Some of Michael's solo hits include "I Keep Forgettin" "I Gotta Try", "I'll Wait", "Yah Mo B There" with James Ingram and the #1 hit "On My Own” with Patti Labelle.

Speaking of Yah Mo B There, we had to ask him about that now legendary scene when Paul Rudd confronts Jayne Lynch about the constant running of a Michael McDonald concert DVD at the fake Best Buy he and Steve Carrell worked at in “The 40 Year Old Virgin!”
