Steely Dan Rolls Out Fall Tour Dates, Announces New Live Albums


Steely Dan, led by Donald Fagen, has announced the 28-date "Absolutely Normal Tour." The trek kicks off on October 5th in Miami with a four-night stand at The Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater — and winds down on November 17th, 19th, and 20th at Boston's Orpheum Theatre. Fagen and the band will play multi-night runs in Orlando and St. Petersburg, Florida; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Morristown, New Jersey; and Port Chester, New York.

Rolling Stone reported Steely Dan will release its latest live album, titled Northeast Corridor: Steely Dan Live! — along with a live recording of Donald Fagen’s The Nightfly Live on September 24th.

Donald Fagen told us that at times he's been tempted to drastically rearrange some of the band's older songs on the road: ["The impulse to, y'know, 'Let's do something really nutty' — when we really get down to it, yeah, I mean, we have had ideas, ways we could make something that sounded significantly different. But when we get down to it, the songs kind of take over, and we kind of gravitate back to a sort of classic instrumentation."] SOUNDCUE (:16 OC: . . . of classic instrumentation)
