The Embassy Theatre will welcome Steely Dan, legendary jazz-rockers Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, along with their band, on July 30, 2013 at 7:30 p.m.. Steely Dan will kick off their Mood Swings 2013: 8 Miles to Pancake Day tour on July 19, and will perform throughout North America.
The Dan promises that “[c]oncertgoers 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 Los Angeles Times; ‘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.’”
The Embassy’s Down The Line series recently featured a tribute to Steely Dan – now, this is your opportunity to experience the real thing. Steely Dan, amongst other honorees, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001 and is known for defining the music of the 1970’s with tunes like Rikki Don’t Lose That Number, Reelin' In The Years, Hey Nineteen, and Deacon Blues.
Tickets range from $39.50 to $79.50 and are available until the day of the show at the Embassy box office and Ticketmaster.
