Fans can expect a setlist packed with greatest hits and beloved album tracks from across the multi-platinum seller's storied five-decade career. Recent shows have included classics songs like “Reelin' in the Years,” “Hey Nineteen,” “Pretzel Logic” and “Kid Charlemagne.”

Steely Dan had a extremely busy touring year in 2016. The New York jazz-rockers trekked across the U.S. with The Dan Who Knew Too Much Tour, which featured special guest Steve Winwood and wrapped up the year this past fall with a ten-night stand in their hometown in New York at Beacon Theatre.
