Steely Dan Confirm North American Fall Tour

Walter Becker and Donald Fagen have confirmed the dates for Steely Dan’s 2013 North American tour. The Mood Swings: 8 Miles to Pancake Day Tour will make four dozen stops throughout the summer and fall.

Kicking off in Atlantic City on July 19, the tour will hit major markets including Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and Boston, with additional special engagements to be announced soon.

Becker and Fagen will be joined by their usual supporting band, which is billed as The Bipolar Allstars (featuring Keith Carlock on drums, Freddie Washington on bass, Jim Beard on keyboards and Jon Herington on guitar), along with The Borderline Brats singers. The evening’s setlists will feature material from their four-decade catalog.

I disagree with the above comment. They suck live because they get crap soloists to play with them, and in general the whole band has no energy. They also put solos in the arrangements in weird places, like ending “Reelin’ In The Years” with a big fusion drum solo wank. Steely Dan is one of my favourite bands ever, but they suck live.

OK, I’ll probably get flac for this but: I’ve seen Steely Dan and this is a recording band, I don’t go and see a show so I can hear the songs played note for note, its down right boring. I would love to see Becker take out a jam on “Do It Again” No dis- respect to SD intended just my opinion.

patrick b magee April 15, 2013, 18:28:18

we need to go

To that I say: Bullcrap! They always kick ass live and they have probably performed 90% of the their recorded work onstage at this point. The shows at the Beacon were off the chain. Especially w/ Larry Carlton wailing on “2nd guitar”.

Eric WTF are you talking about? True, SD is a recording band and are not that great live…but you do realize one of the reasons they kinda suck live is because THEY DONT PLAY THEIR SONGS NOTE FOR NOTE? They are always changing their arrangements and jazzing ish up. Do you own their CDs and have you seen them perform live? SMH.
