Nearly Dan - 21st Anniversary Tour
The Spirit & Sound of Steely Dan - featuring classic album Aja 40 year celebration
Less tribute and more homage, Nearly Dan is saviour to the growing legions of Dan fans, desperate to hear the meticulously crafted grooves and allusive lyrical style of Donald Fagen & Walter Becker.
Nearly Dan's approach is faithful, though not reverential, and relaxed but as tight as their namesakes. They bring their own unique spirit and spontaneous humour to every concert, and the band are now in its 21st year on the road.
Nearly Dan promise all the Steely Dan favourites in a two hour-plus show, featuring tracks from the groove of Countdown to Ecstasy to the super cool of celebrated albums The Royal Scam. Aja and Gaucho also featuring Donald Fagen’s classic solo masterpiece The Nightfly.

Donald Fagen and Walter Becker have created some of the most influential music of the pop era.

It’s been over 40 years since the release of the first Steely Dan album Can’t buy a Thrill, featuring the hits Do it Again and Reelin’ in the Years.
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.
