FIVE-time Grammy Award winner Michael McDonald will join legendary singer songwriter Boz Scaggs to perform all of their greatest hits, along with songs from their latest albums, Soul Speak and Speak Low at the Riverstage, Brisbane Botanic Gardens, on Saturday, February 27.

Joining them for selected shows will be the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, who will be performing a mix of their own original material and Fleetwood Mac songs.

When Michael McDonald was a member of The Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan, he recorded some of his most well-known songs, such as Takin' It to the Streets, Little Darling, Minute by Minute and What a Fool Believes (which became a number one single in the US and earned him a 1978 Grammy Award for Song of the Year).

His latest album, Soul Speak, is the natural follow-up to Michael McDonald's two smash hit explorations of the Motown Records Songbook - the platinum-selling Motown from 2003, nominated for two Grammy Awards, and the next year's gold-selling Motown Two.

McDonald's latest album doesn't focus on any particular style, record label or decade; this time, he simply wanted to sing what he loves, bringing together tracks like Into the Mystic, by Van Morrison with Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.

Boz Scaggs is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist. He gained fame in the 1970s with several Top 20 Hits in the United States along with the number two album Silk Degrees, which contained the worldwide hit singles, Lido Shuffle, What Can I Say and Lowdown.

His latest album, Speak Low is the sublime and sexy follow up to Scaggs' critically acclaimed 2003 standards collection, But Beautiful.

Recorded together in four days with the musicians playing together in the same room, Speak Low is filled with a rare kind of energy that erupts when everyone involved is alive to the possibilities of what can happen.

With three music legends sharing the stage, audiences will be thrilled to hear all of their favourite songs from these exceptional artists. However, while the lyrics and the tunes might be familiar, in the hands of McDonald, Scaggs and Fleetwood these songs will be reborn into something intoxicatingly original.
