Steely Dan to Perform at The Pearl at The Palms Aug. 28

Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, return to the intimate The Pearl Concert Theater as part of the Steely Dan Rent Party ’09 US tour on Friday, August 28, 2009.

Concertgoers can expect a hefty draft of the incomparable Steely Dan experience this year. Supported by their renowned 11-piece band — including Keith Carlock on drums, Freddie Washington on bass and Jon Herington on guitar — Becker and Fagen will draw from their deep catalog and showcase Steely Dan’s signature slinky grooves, sleek subversive lyrics, impeccable musicianship, and infectious hits.

Steely Dan helped define the soundtrack of the ’70s with hits such as “Reelin’ in the Years,” “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number,” “Do It Again,” “Deacon Blues,” “Peg,” “Babylon Sisters” and “Hey Nineteen,” culled from their seven platinum albums issued between 1972 and 1980 including 1977’s groundbreaking “Aja.” They reunited in the early ’90s and toured throughout the decade, releasing multi-Grammy winner Two Against Nature in 2000 and its acclaimed follow-up Everything Must Go in 2003. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.

This event is presented by Andrew Hewitt and Live Nation. The Pearl Box Office is open from noon – 7:00 p.m. daily. Doors will open at 7:00 p.m. and show time is 8:00 p.m. The Pearl is home to Miller Lite Live, presented by Cricket Wireless and sponsored by Citi; for more information on upcoming concerts, please call 702-942-6888.
