Steely Dan have announced a string of UK arena dates for February 2019, where they will be joined on stage by Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steve Winwood. Tickets for the tour are set to go on sale on at 10am on Friday, 7 September.
Since forming in 1972 Steely Dan have sold over 40 million records worldwide. The band’s acclaimed album Can’t Buy A Thrill was named 145 in Rolling Stone’s 500 albums of all time. Their eighth album, Two Against Nature, saw Steely Dan win an impressive total of four Grammy Awards including Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album. The band have celebrated a long history of success having worked with the likes of multi-award winning singers Barbra Streisand and Diana Ross.
Founder member Donald Fagen lost his bandmate Walter Becker on this very day in 2017 after a sudden illness, but he said: “I intend to keep the music we created together alive as long as I can with the Steely Dan band.”
Joining Steely Dan on tour is Steve Winwood. The multi-talented composer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist has sold over 50 million records over a career spanning five decades. He will be performing tracks from his days with The Spencer Davis Group, Blind Faith and Traffic as well as a selection of songs from his fruitful solo career.
Winwood has previously worked with Jimi Hendrix, The Who, James Brown, George Harrison, Tina Turner and more recently Carlos Santana, Tom Petty and Eric Clapton. The BMI icon award winner, honoured for his ‘enduring influence on generations of music makers,’ was named the one of the ‘Greatest Singers of All Time’ in 2010.
