Steely Dan Playing Full Album Shows For NYC Stand
Steely Dan's upcoming seven-night run at New York City's Beacon Theatre will once again feature the band playing full albums and granting fan requests. The complete albums which will be getting an airing during the Manhattan stand will be 1976's The Royal Scam, 1977's Aja, and 1980's Gaucho. Steely Dan's upcoming road trek has been dubbed the "Mood Swings: 8 Miles To Pancake Day" tour. The band first began playing full album shows during its 2009 tour.
 
The breakdown for the shows will be: September 30th -- Aja & select hits; October 1st -- greatest hits; October 3rd -- The Royal Scam and select hits; October 4th -- Gaucho and select hits; October 5th -- "request night"; October 7th -- Aja and select hits; and October 8th -- greatest hits.
 
Back in 2009, Walter Becker admitted that he and Donald Fagen thought neither long nor hard on the prospect of the band playing its album's in their entirety for fans: "Well, it just seemed a format for our material that was pre-existing and that to some extent had a contour to it. Y'know, if we did those songs in the order that we recorded them in -- which is what we propose to do -- it'll recreate the experience of listening to the album. I think it'll be interesting to see how. . . What that produces, how that works out in a concert format. For all I know, it may not work out as well as we think, but I have a feeling it'll be good." Danny Clinch
