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. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers staged complete performances of several of their beloved classic albums from start to finish at The Beacon in 2008, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2016. Included among the highlights of this year's extraordinary concerts are: performances of Steely Dan's Countdown to Ecstasy (1973), The Royal Scam (1976), Aja (1977), Gaucho (1980), plus Donald Fagen's solo album The Nightfly (1982), plus "By Popular Demand" and "Greatest Hits" nights. Each and every night, Steely Dan will also treat audiences with selections from The Dan's extraordinary catalog, packed with infectious tunes, bodacious harmonies, irresistible grooves, blazing solo work, rich ensembles and sleek, subversive lyrics.

Additionally, Steely Dan has announced five October performance dates in Richmond, VA; Pittsburgh, PA; Buffalo, NY; Baltimore, MD; and Bethlehem, PA.

On all shows, Fagen will be joined once again by the crack group of brilliant and acclaimed musicians who have famously supported him in recent years, including: Jon Herington (guitar), Keith Carlock (drums), Freddie Washington (bass), Jim Beard (keyboards), a four-piece horn section and three backup vocalists.

For the October concerts, American Express cardmembers can purchase advance tickets beginning Tues., Mar. 27 at 10 a.m. EDT through Thurs., Mar. 29 at 10 p.m. EDT. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Fri, Mar. 30 at 10 a.m. EDT and can be purchased through Ticketmaster outlets, or charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000.
