Tom Johnston, Michael McDonald, Pat Simmons and John McFee will be back together for the first time in almost 25 years. The 30-date tour closes October 10 in Houston.

But it will be the first time in nearly 25 years that McDonald will be touring with them as well, and it's all in honor of the band's 50th anniversary.

The Doobie Brothers will look to ride a potential Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction into a 50th anniversary tour in 2020.

Formed in Northern California, the group featured harmonies backed by the finger-picking style of guitarist Patrick Simmons paired with the R&B guitar playing by Tom Johnston, singing lead.

According to a press release, the July 22 concert is part of the group's 30-city 50th anniversary tour.

Fans should expect to hear several of the band's hits, including "Listen to the Music", "Takin' It To The Streets", and "Long Train Running".
