The Doobie Brothers have just rolled out an eight-night Las Vegas run for next May. The band, which is in the midst of its 50th anniversary tour with the legendary Michael McDonald back on board, will play “Sin City’s” Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood on May 13th, 14th, 18th, 20th, 21st, 25th, 27th, and 28th. Tickets go on sale  Friday, December 17th at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET via

Doobies leader Tom Johnston spoke to USA Today and was asked how he would feel about playing an even longer Vegas residency that the band has committed to for next spring, and admitted, “I don’t know about a few months anywhere, but that’s just me. That’s a long time to be in one place, like country artists in Branson, Missouri. I like to travel. I like the idea of being in a different town every night. You see a lot more people that way and I like to travel internationally, though all of that has a big question mark on it right now.”

Michael McDonald added that he couldn’t be happier to be back in the fold for the band’s historic anniversary trek: “It’s that sensation that it feels so natural; it doesn’t feel like it’s much different than it ever was. Our friendships have always existed, so it’s almost like we’ve always been doing it. But on the other hand, we’ve grown because of it. When you spend the better part of a month together at any given time, we’ve been able to sit around and reminisce about a lot of stuff. I was talking to (Doobies guitarist) John (McFee) about how at our age, playing these venues still and getting to go out and tour like this, that’s something we don’t take for granted.”
