Set List: Steely Dan's Mood Swings: 8 Miles to Pancake Day Tour

Steely Dan are on the road this summer with the "Mood Swings: 8 Miles to Pancake Day Tour."

While a few of the dates are featuring full versions of albums such as Aja, Gaucho and The Royal Scam, the majority of the tour is a career-spanning evening of music.

The following set list has been normal over the course of the tour, so far, with just a couple of occasional substitutions. There was concentration on Countdown to Ecstasy (five tracks) and Aja (four tracks) while the rest of their catalog was visited via one or two tracks. Only 2000's Two Against Nature was ignored.
