UPDATE: Steely Dan coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater
They may be famously obsessive in the studio, but Steely Dan aren't exactly road dogs. But when they do hit the road, you can usually count on at least one stop at Ruth Eckerd Hall.
It appears this fall, they're ready to Do It Again. The classic rock-fusion duo of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker have announced a pretty extensive summer and fall tour that'll bring them back to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Sept. 14 (and Orlando's Hard Rock Live on Sept. 11, if that's your thing).
The venue hasn't announced any details about the show, although some (unofficial) ticket prices of $79 to $149 appeared on their calendar last week before quickly being removed. Steely Dan's website says they'll go onsale Saturday, April 20. We'll keep you posted.
***UPDATE*** Ruth Eckerd Hall says Steely Dan tickets will cost $79-$135 and go onsale at noon April 20.
Fun fact: The nightclub Aja near Channelside in downtown Tampa got its name from the Steely Dan album of the same name. We're guessing Peg doesn't get a lot of airplay there, though.
