Steely Dan's Donald Fagen: But he said he'd never do it without his fez on...?


OK, so DeRo refers to "dad rock" in his review today of the new Wilco record, and no doubt this qualifies. However, the person writing this particular post may be unashamedly a slobbering Steely Dan fan but is a thirtysomething very much without kids. So there.

The Dan band will be holding court later his summer for four — count 'em, four — nights at the Chicago Theatre as part of the lumbering-on classic rock band's Rent Party Tour. Each night will feature a different album played in its entirety, plus some frills:

Aug. 31 — "Aja"
Sept. 1 — "Gaucho"
Sept. 3 — "The Royal Scam"
Sept. 4 — "Takin' It to the Seats" Internet Request Night
, in which the setlist is determined by Internet votes from ticket-holders

Perhaps some of you fans, like me, need to take a moment to mop up after your spit take.

The "tour" includes multi-night stands like this in only two other cities, which you can guess: New York and L.A.

Tickets for all four Chicago shows go on sale at 11 a.m. June 6 at the Chicago Theatre Box Office and all Ticketmaster locations. To charge-by-phone call 800-745-3000.
