Somebody with Steely Dan is reeling in the virus.
The band just canceled all their dates in Florida for their current “Absolutely Normal” tour, moving them to next year. Rikki, don’t lose that ticket: you can trade it in for the 2022 dates.
Steely Dan– which is really now just Donald Fagen since the untimely death of Walter Becker- and his band of crack musicians– was embarking on the tour up the East Coast and promoting their new live album, “Northeast Corridor.”
The tour is now postponed for 20 days, beginning October 25th in Baltimore. I’ll see in November at the great Capitol Theater in Port Chester, New York. All those Florida and North Carolina dates have been moved to July 2022.
Their website states: “Steely Dan have announced that they will postpone their upcoming shows in Miami, Orlando, St Petersburg, Jacksonville, North Charleston, Charlotte, and Richmond. The postponement comes out of an abundance of caution despite COVID-19 health and safety precautions in place. Fans are encouraged to hold on to their tickets for the newly scheduled dates, which can be seen below.”
Let’s hope for a speedy recovery and no more illness for the Dan. In the meantime, learn to work the saxophone.
