    Doobie Doobie Doo! On June 28th, The Doobie Brothers' Live at the Greek Theatre 1982 will be released on CD and DVD through Eagle Rock Entertainment. All you classic rock fiends will definitely want to check this one out.

    The rafters of Berkeley, California's famed Greek Theater shook with rock 'n' roll fervor as the final date of the final tour of hometown heroes The Doobie Brothers brought many in the crowd that night to tears. Billed as their "Farewell Tour," the band, guitarist/vocalist Pat Simmons, keyboardist/vocalist Michael McDonald, drummer Keith Knudson, guitarist/violinist/harmonica player John McFee, saxophonist/keyboardist/flautist Cornelius Bumpus, drummer/percussionist Chet McCracken, bassist Willie Weeks, and conga player Bob LaKind, pulled out all the stops on a set that revisited their every era.

    This incredible night included the surprise return of band co-founder Tom Johnston for the final two numbers. On their biggest hit, "Listen to the Music," original member John Hartman also joined the band as did former members Tiran Porter and Michael Hossack. It would prove to be the last onstage Doobie Brothers music for five years.

    The two-hour, 21-track DVD includes five bonus songs cut from the original film of the event: "Little Darlin' (I Need You)," "One Step Closer," "Dependin' on You," "Real Love" and ""No Stoppin' Us Now" as well as interviews with the band and its manager.

    Since their self-titled debut in 1971, The Doobie Brothers have released thirteen studio albums, as well as several live albums and "Best Of" compilations. Live at the Greek Theatre 1982 is a welcome addition to their stunning musical repertoire that captures an unforgettable celebration of their career.
