The legendary co-founder of the super group Steely Dan, Donald Fagen, comes to the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater on Tuesday, August 8th, 2017 / 8PM for a special intimate performance. Tickets go on sale starting on Friday, April 28th / 10am.
Donald Fagen is one of the two masterminds behind the legendary jazz-pop band Steely Dan. Along with his longtime friend Walter Becker, they created a string of hits including “Aja,” “FM,” “Reelin In The Years,” “Deacon Blues” and many more. His solo work has been a continuation of the band’s personna — carefully constructed and arranged, intricately detailed pop songs that are more substantial than their stylish surface may indicate. His solo debut, The Nightfly, was considered one of the best albums he had ever made; it covered the same ground as the previous Steely Dan albums, yet surpassed them in terms of ambition and achievement. It was certified platinum for sales of over a million copies in the U.S. and reached 11 on the Billboard Top 200 albums list. It was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Becker produced Fagen’s second album, Kamakiriad, which was nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year and reached number 10 on the Top 200 albums chart. Fagen has produced two additional well-received solo albums as well as publishing an autobiography titled Eminent Hipsters. He and Becker still continue to tour frequently as Steely Dan.
