Steely Dan announced today that the band will return to The Beacon Theatre stage for a nine-night residency of themed performances starting October 17, 2018.

ABOUT STEELY DAN:Steely Dan has been led by Donald Fagen and Walter Becker since 1972, until Becker’s passing in September 2017. The band has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide, and helped define the soundtrack of the '70s with hits such as “Reelin’ in the Years,” “Rikki Don't Lose That Number,” “F.M.,” “Peg,” “Hey Nineteen,” “Deacon Blues,” and “Babylon Sisters,” from their seven platinum albums issued between 1972 and 1980 -- including 1977's groundbreaking Aja. Steely Dan reunited in the early '90s, launching a string of sold-out tours (that continue through today). In 2000 they released the multi-Grammy winning (including “Album of the Year”) Two Against Nature, and released the acclaimed follow-up Everything Must Go in 2003. Steely Dan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001. Visit www.steelydanofficial.com and www.facebook.com/SteelyDan for updated information
