Doobie Brothers vocalist, Michael McDonald will play three exclusive shows in the UK this week.

Starting in Birmingham at the Symphony Hall on June 19, McDonald will play London’s Hammersmith Apollo on June 20 and finish at the Manchester Apollo on June 21.

Known for distinctive voice and years spent in the blue-eyed soul groups like Steely Dan and the Doobie Brothers, the five-times Grammy winner released a new album of classic soul covers earlier this year.

Stevie Wonder‘s ‘Living For The City’, Jackie Wilson ‘Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher’ and Van Morrison‘s ‘Into The Mystic’ all feature on the album, Soul Speak.

“In those days if you wanted to be a musician you touched all that was out there,” said McDonald. “My style came as much from that great pool of soul singers as anything.”
