The legendary band known to its most passionate fans as simply “The Dan” recently reunited and has committed to a large collection of upcoming live concerts. This means that Steely Dan tickets will be available to fans who’ve been able to experience the magic of a live show in the past, as well as those who have yet to feel the raw energy that the band can create.
Formed in 1972 after five years of percolating in and around New York City, the band traveled a blue-collar route to global success. They bounced around between a few record labels that seemed unclear on how exactly to capitalize on their talents and unique personalities and sell tons of Steely Dan Tour tickets. Their first studio album was released in 1972, followed by one in each of the following years.
By 1977, the band had officially come together and was in full force, and this resulted in several years of world tours between then and the mid-1980s. A gigantic hiatus began in 1981 when lead man Walter Becker began to grow tired of the grind of a touring musician, subsequently moving himself and his family to the shores of Maui where he became a popular avocado farmer. Other band members pursued solo projects and continued their careers in music, although tickets for Steely Dan concerts were obsolete for the better part of the 1980s.
In 1993, Becker and fellow founder Donald Fagan where talked into doing an American Tour under the pretense that they had been reunited. Still unclear about their future, a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year gave them a kick in the pants creatively and inspired them to get the band back on track. Fans who have purchased Steely Dan tickets to concerts since the early 90s know that the band has taken on several shapes and identities, utilizing well over a half-dozen musicians to create and preserve their signature sound.
As of today, Steely Dan has sold well over 40 million albums throughout the world, and millions of fans have seized the opportunity to buy Steely Dan tickets and see the band live and in person. They are but one of many classic rock groups from the 1970s and 80s that have reunited in the past year, but The Dan clearly has one of the most passionate and loyal fan bases in all of rock 'n roll music. Many fans listened to their most popular songs at a time when they themselves were forming their identities in life and the world around them was changing on a week-to-week basis. Their upcoming tour will begin this summer and touch down in cities all over the nation.
