MSGE, CPAC and Jam present Steely Dan, an American jazz-rock band featuring the dynamic duo of Walter Becker and Donald Fagen. This marks the band's first appearance ever at the Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre, and the band is kicking it off with a resident run of three shows.
The band will perform the album's Aja and Guacho in their entirety on July 22 and 24, respectively, and the July 25 show will be "Takin' It to the Seats" Internet Request Night, as the set list will be determined by internet votes from ticket-holders. In support of the band's resident run, Steely Dan will engage their fans by taking advantage of MSG's marketing and promotional assets including MSG programming and MSG.com.
The partnership will include original programming to air within MSG programming in July, providing fans an inside look into one of the most revered bands of our time. The exclusive content will include never-before seen footage of the band both on and off the stage, as well as interviews of the band to be taped the week of June 1st in New York while they are in town rehearsing for their tour.
Another component of the partnership between Steely Dan and MSGE will be to provide new, exclusive Steely Dan interviews, photos, and past performance footage on MSG.com/steelydan. Fans will be able to visit the site to access never before seen footage as the band speaks to their overall career, as well as their thoughts regarding their upcoming dates at The Beacon, The Chicago Theatre, and the Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre.
