Steely Dan Announce Fall Tour Dates
Steely Dan have announced almost a dozen tour dates for this fall. The new shows come a little more than a week after the death of band co-founder Walter Becker.
The 11 dates start in Thackerville, Okla., on Oct. 13 and run through Oct. 30 in Dublin, one of three shows Steely Dan will play with the Doobie Brothers in and around the U.K.
You can see the list of tour dates below.
Becker, who formed the band in 1972 with keyboardist and singer Donald Fagen, died on Sept. 3 at age 67. While no cause of death has been confirmed yet, the guitarist had to pull out of both of Steely Dan’s appearances at the Classic West and Classic East music festivals in July. Fagen said that Becker was “recovering from a procedure and hopefully he’ll be fine very soon” at the time.
Following Becker's death, Fagen issued a heartfelt statement on the passing of his longtime fiend, concluding with, "I intend to keep the music we created together alive as long as I can with the Steely Dan band."
These new tour dates come after a series of concerts Fagen has lined up with his solo group, Donald Fagen & the Nightflyers. He's currently on the road with them, with shows scheduled from Sept. 12 through Sept. 24.
