Concert announcements still feel very 2019 in many ways, but there’s no need to be “Reelin’ In The Years.” It’s 2021, and the Lehigh Valley is climbing out of the COVID-19 pandemic slowly but surely, doing the “Dirty Work.”
So, as “Any Major Dude Will Tell You,” heading back to an indoor concert later this fall will have you wanting to “Do It Again” and again and again.
OK, enough with the puns. If you haven’t picked up on it by now, Steely Dan will be cruising into the Lehigh Valley later this year, on Nov. 14 at 8 p.m. to be specific (”Rikki, Don’t Lose That Number”). Donald Fagen and company will take the stage at the Wind Creek Event Center as one of the last stops on their 2021 Absolutely Normal Tour.
The tour coincides with the release of the group’s newest album, a live recording called “Northeast Corridor.” It’s the band’s first live album in over 25 years. The recording includes live performances of “Black Cow,” “Rikki, Don’t Lose That Number,” “Hey Nineteen,” “Things I Missed The Most,” “Aja” and more.
The band has released the first single from the album, a swingin’ live rendition of “Reelin’ In The Years,” recorded during a show at Mohegan Sun Arena.
Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Friday, and can be found on Ticketmaster.
