Steely Dan & Steve Winwood
Steely Dan toured the US last fall, including a five-night NYC run where they played some of their classic LPs in their entirety, and they’ll be hitting the road again this summer, this time with past tourmate Steve Winwood serving as opener on most dates. The “Earth After Hours” tour will play the classic rock hits. Steely Dan lead vocalist and keyboardist Donald Fagen has continued to perform live under the Steely Dan name since the band’s co-founder, multi-instrumentalist and backing vocalist, Walter Becker, died of complications from esophageal cancer in 2017. Steely Dan and Winwood have been touring partners before; most recently, they toured the UK and Ireland together in Feb. 2019.
