Steely Dan Playing Aja, Gaucho, The Royal Scam and All Requests Night at The Beacon

Steely Dan Plays The Works

Well, classic album shows seem to be all the rage these days, especially for bands that haven’t really made an album you could call “classic” in ages. Like Lucinda Williams, The Posies, and Echo and the Bunnymen before them (I know I’m forgetting some people here), Steely Dan are the latest in a string of revival acts to bring a set of one-off classic album shows to NYC. Billed as “Steely Dan Plays The Works”, Messrs Fagen and Becker will be taking up residency at the Beacon from July 28 – August 1 to belt out precisely execute some of their greatest hits. Tickets for the Beacon Theatre shows go on Amex presale starting May 30, 2009 at 10 AM, public sale begins on June 6, 2009 at 10AM. More Steely Dan residency details below:

  1. You guys are tools if you’re making fun of Steely Dan. The shows are amazing sonically and musically. Making fun of the typical crowd there is a different story. It’s not exactly a rambunctious crew.

  2. I loved Steely Dan in the 70s and I also loved Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix; what’s wrong with having eclectic taste in music?
