Legendary jazz-rock icons Walter Becker and Donald Fagen have announced that STEELY DAN will hit the road again in 2013, taking their Mood Swing: 8 Miles To Pancake Day Tour to over four dozen stops throughout North America. The tour will make a stop at the Embassy Theatre on Tuesday, July 30, at 7:30 p.m.
Concertgoers can expect an evening of the same high-level of musical excellence that garnered raves from fans and critics alike, and which was described by the LA Times thusly: “Everyone gathered Friday evening was a believer – and they were treated to something close to rapture.” The Chicago Sun-Times raved “This was different. This was live. This was vibrant. This was a cascade of color carried along by Fagen, Becker, eight brilliant supporting musicians and three superb backing vocalists.”
Onstage, Donald and Walther will be joined by those same eight brilliant supporting musicians, no appearing 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 – three sublime, soulful songbirds. Together, they will treat audiences to selections from The Dan’s extraordinary four-decade catalog, rich with infectious tunes, bodacious harmonies, irresistible grooves and sleek, subversive lyrics, punctuated by blazing solo work and rich ensembles. As always with the adventurous Fagen and Becker, a few surprises may be in store as well.
Tickets for Steely Dan go on sale Friday, April 26 at 10 a.m. at the Embassy box office, all Ticketmaster locations and Ticketmaster.com. Reserved seats are $79.50, $59.50 and $39.50. There are a limited number of Gold Circle Seats available at $125.
