One of the biggest rock bands of the 1970s is will play the Centrium in October.

Four-time Grammy winner Doobie Brothers will make a stop in Red Deer on Oct. 21 with tickets going on sale on Friday at 10 a.m.

The Doobie Brothers broke through on the music scene with their 1972 sophomore effort Toulouse Street and have gone on to record three multi-platinum, seven platinum and 14 gold albums — topped by their 1976 Best of the Doobies, which has sold more than 11 million copies and achieved diamond status.

All told, they have sold more than 30 million albums with their roots-based sound.

The Doobies have racked up five top 10 singles and 16 top 40 hits.

But despite this success, they have not been afraid to evolve as a band, recently recording their first country record that will be released later this year, featuring some of the genre’s biggest stars.

The lineup for the Doobie Brothers still includes founding members Patrick Simmons (singer, songwriter, guitarist), Tom Johnston (drums) and longtime member John McFee, who plays several instruments.
