Just announced: Steely Dan live in London and Dublin in 2017!

Steely Dan will play the 2017 Blues Fest in Dublin and London with "very special guests" The Doobie Brothers.

The dates are October 28 in Dublin at the 3 Arena followed by London and the O2 Arena on October 29.

Tickets go on sale May 12. Presale May 10.

It's been eight years since Steely Dan played London. It was part of the 2009 Left Bank tour that saw the band play a total of 12 shows in Holland, Belgium, Scotland, UK, France, Switzerland, Italy and Monaco.

Now ... something tells me that Steely Dan won't pop over to do just two shows. there should be at least a handful more in Europe. Makes economic sense. But when and where?
Time for live gig detectives to check for other festival opportunities, when Steely Dan members have holes in their schedules etcetera.

With the band just having finished a number of shows in Las Vegas, a couple of dates set for April, June and July plus Donald Fagen doing a solo trek in September this looks like a busy year for Steely Dan indeed.

And while we at Radio Dupree had been busy polishing up our 極めて基本的な日本語, a trip to London and/or Dublin doesn't rule Yokohama out, right?
