Steely Dan has rolled out its rescheduled dates with Steve Winwood. The 2020 summer tour, which was to run throughout June and July, will now play nearly exactly one year later than originally booked. The 23-date trek will now begin on June 2nd, 2021 at Portland, Oregon's Veterans Memorial Coliseum, with the dates winding down on July 11th, 2021 at Wantagh, New York's Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater.

Donald Fagen explained a while back that Steely Dan was actually one of the most unlikely bands to gain traction on the road: "We actually ended up as a touring band by accident, really. I'm talking about my partner Walter Becker and I. Certainly I became a frontman by accident, I know that. We just couldn't find a singer that we felt could convey the attitude we we're looking for. And it became obvious that I was probably the one to do it, even though I had very little experience. Our model for songs was more literary or short story-like than being a model from popular music."
