Steely Dan to do it again, bring new tour to Valley in June
PHOENIX — Steely Dan is coming back to do it again in the Valley for the first time in six years.
The rock band will make a stop at Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix on June 11 as part of the Earth After Hours tour.
It will be Steely Dan’s first Valley appearance since July 2014.
English rocker Steve Winwood will join the band on the 24-stop tour, which begins on May 26 in Austin and ends July 11 in Bethel, New York.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Jan. 25 at 10 a.m., and presales begin Monday.
Steely Dan has toured consistently since the band reunited in 1993 despite not putting out an album since 2003.
The band’s 1972 album “Can’t Buy A Thrill” featured popular hits such as “Do It Again” and “Reelin’ In The Years.”
Steely Dan won two Grammy awards in 2000 for its album “Two Against Nature” and a third Grammy that year with Cousin Dupree for best pop performance by a duo or group with vocals.
The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.
Lead vocalist Donald Fagen is the group’s only remaining founding member after guitarist Walter Becker died in 2017.
