CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Steely Dan have recently announced more than 30 dates on their upcoming U.S. "Rent Party '09 Tour".
In addition to single-night concerts across the country, the group's masterminds Walter Becker and Donald Fagen have scheduled multi-night stands of extraordinary shows including a very special two-night stand in Akron.
On November 16 at the University of Akron's EJ Thomas Hall, Steely Dan will be performing the Platinum selling album Aja in its entirety. During this uniquely rare occasion, fans will be treated to such Steely Dan favorites as "Peg," "Deacon Blues," and "Josie."
The following evening, November 17, the guys will go at it again playing everything from 1976's smash success Royal Scam. Fans on this night will have the pleasure of enjoying "Kid Charlemagne," "The Fez," "Don't Take Me Alive," and "Haitian Divorce."
Steely Dan has teamed with I Love All Access to offer VIP packages for the band's most dedicated fans.
There will not be a presale happening for either of these shows. Tickets go on sale next Friday, October 2 at 10am.
Steely Dan helped define the soundtrack of the '70s with hits including "F.M.," "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. They reunited in the early '90s and have toured throughout the decade and beyond, 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.
