Steely Dan will be on the road this summer performing three of their classic albums — but they’re also letting their fans determine the set lists for a few select shows in New York, Chicago and Boston.
It starts with the Boston show on July 25. Fans can click right here to vote on the band’s set list.

The Hall of Fame jazz/rock band, the brainchild of Water Becker (above, left) and Donald Fagen (above, right), will also be holding a sweepstakes that will give the winners premier seats at a New York performance and includes dinner backstage before the show.
Fans can get more details and enter the sweepstakes here.
But they’ll squeeze in the fan-voted set lists when they play Boston, which is open for voting by the general public, the band tells me.
In all, Steely will be at the Beacon from July 28 through August 1.
This should be quite a treat. I think many of us went through a Steely Dan phase, and I always loved the amazing guitar work on their albums, whether it was Becker or the long line of talented guitar players they always seemed to line up.
Which leads you to think that you might get a surprise appearance or two at some of these shows.
