STEELY DAN ANNOUNCE SUMMER U.S. TOUR WITH MICHAEL MCDONALD
32-Date Tour to Kick Off July 7 In Milwaukee
 

Legendary jazz-rock icons Walter Becker and Donald Fagen reunite with a band mate from the '70s when Steely Dan shares the bill with Michael McDonald and his band for their 32-city Steelyard "Sugartooth" McDan and The Fab-Originees.com Tour this summer.

Opening in Milwaukee on July 7, the tour hits major U.S. markets including Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Dallas, Denver, and Phoenix before closing in Detroit on September 2nd St. Louis on September 4th. Tickets for the tour, which is promoted by Live Nation, will go on sale through Ticketmaster starting May 5th.

Concertgoers can expect a hefty draft of the inimitable Steely Dan sonic experience this summer. Supported by a crack 10-piece band — including Keith Carlock on drums, Freddie Washington on bass, and Jon Herington on guitar — Becker and Fagen will showcase selections from Steely Dan’s extraordinary three-decade plus catalog of slinky grooves, sleek subversive lyrics, and infectious hits. Set lists may also sample from Fagen’s recently released “Morph The Cat” and Becker’s upcoming release, due later this year.  A few surprises may be in store as well.

STEELY DAN helped define the soundtrack of the '70s with hits such as Reelin’ in the Years, Rikki Don't Lose That Number, Deacon Blues, Peg, Babylon Sisters, and Hey Nineteen, culled from their seven platinum albums issued between 1972 and 1980 (including 1977's groundbreaking “Aja”). They reunited in the early '90s and toured throughout the decade, releasing multi-Grammy winner “Two Against Nature” in 2000 and its acclaimed follow-up “Everything Must Go” in 2003. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.

Five-time Grammy winner MICHAEL MCDONALD’S distinctively soulful voice first emerged in the 1970’s as a vocalist in Steely Dan. He then joined the Doobie Brothers in 1975 and in the years that followed, McDonald and the Doobie Brothers enjoyed tremendous commercial and creative success.  Their sound evolved from guitar-driven rock to a sultry, tight R&B feel, with McDonald writing  and singing lead on  their signature hits Takin' It to the Streets, What a Fool Believes,  and  Minute by Minute.  As a solo artist, McDonald charted with I Keep Forgettin', Sweet Freedom, Yah Mo B There (with James Ingram), and On My Own (with Patti LaBelle), among others.  In the last four years, Michael has released four records all of which have achieved platinum or gold certifications, including his interpretations of Motown classics on his appropriately titled "Motown" and "Motown II" albums.
