Steely Dan has set the “Absolutely Normal Tour ’21,” which kicks off with a four-night stand in Miami, Fla., on October 5. The U.S. tour will hit 15 cities over 28 concerts before wrapping on November 20. See below for the full itinerary.

In addition, Steely Dan’s Northeast Corridor: Steely Dan Live! and a live version of Donald Fagen’s acclaimed 1982 solo album The Nightfly were both released through UMe on Sept. 24. (Both albums will also be available on 180g vinyl on Oct. 1.) The first live Steely Dan album in more than 25 years, Northeast Corridor: Steely Dan Live! was recorded across tour dates at New York City’s Beacon Theatre, The Met Philadelphia, and more, and showcases selections from the band’s extraordinary catalog. Fagen’s The Nightfly Live was performed live by the Steely Dan Band. The full tracklisting can be found below.

Listen to several favorites from Northeast Corridor

Concertgoers can expect a set from Steely Dan’s extraordinary five-decade plus catalog as well as The Nightfly. Each concert ticket purchased online comes with a CD copy of Northeast Corridor: Steely Dan Live! or The Nightfly Live.

Listen to Fagen and the Steely Dan Band perform “I.G.Y.” and “New Frontier” from the new live album

    Much as I love Steely Dan, this version of “Reelin’ in the Years” does nothing for me. I saw them twice when they resumed touring in the early 90s. They rocked. Don’t need to see Donald channeling his inner Ray.

    Thanks for the article/update.
    Steely Dan’s 1995 “Alive In America”, while, for some odd reason, was not fully embraced by “professional” critics, is, IMO, a terrific album; regardless of live or studio
    The performances, set selection, sonics, and production, are top-notch.
    Definitely on my personal “ten” list on a deserted island (bring plenty of AA batteries for the salvaged CD player).

    The new live version of Bodhissatva, as it was on the last tour, is worth the price of all your groceries this year. The new guitarist blows Herrington off the stage and the crowd showed its appreciation.
