Steely Dan co-founder Walter Becker passed away last week at the age 67. In the wake of his death, longtime member Donald Fagen penned a touching tribute in which he vowed to continue on with the group. “I intend to keep the music we created together alive as long as I can with the Steely Dan band,” he wrote.
Sticking to his word, Fagen has announced a new batch of Steely Dan tour dates for October. The jaunt takes place in the US and features such cities as Grand Rapids, Buffalo, and Baltimore.
While the band has performed without Becker in the past — as recently as this July, when the musician had to undergo surgery — these shows are the first since his passing.
