Steely Dan are set to play their first full UK tour for the first time in nearly ten years. The announcement follows their acclaimed one-off live show at London’s Bluesfest a year ago, and will feature Steve Winwood in support. Founder member Donald Fagen lost his bandmate Walter Becker in 2017 after a sudden illness, but said “I intend to keep the music we created together alive as long as I can with the Steely Dan band.”

The group started in 1972, has sold more than 40 million albums and was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2001. Confirmed dates so far include Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and London plus Dublin, Ireland. Tickets go on sale this Friday 7 August via.  https://livenation.us13.list-manage.com/track/click?u=8de013f77985fee248af02718&id=2ff6e68d93&e=df6573203c" rel="nofollow - Live Nation .

Sad about Walter Becker. I saw them around ten years ago and it was great. The majority of the concert was 'Aja" and "Gaucho" but they played a couple of early ones as well "Dirty Work' and "Black Friday" come to mind. Someone in the audience kept constantly yelling to Fagen play Rikki and he cracked it and yelled back "I am not playing Rikki" . So don't be disappointed if you don't hear "Rikki Don't Lose That Number". Didn't matter anyway, as I said above "They were great" loved it.
