Steely Dan Las Vegas

Steely Dan’s nine-night exclusive in Las Vegas with a residency during April 12th -29th at the Opaline Theatre at The Venetian® Las Vegas, titled “Reelin’ in the Chips,” the band will entertain audiences with a “greatest hits” set of diverse selections from the band’s extraordinary catalog.
Steely Dan has sold more than 40 million albums and helped define the soundtrack of the ’70s with hits such as “Reelin’ in the Years,” “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number,” “F.M.,” “Peg,” “Hey Nineteen,” “Deacon Blues,” and “Babylon Sisters.”

Co-founded by Donald Fagen and Walter Becker in 1972, STEELY DAN has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and helped define the soundtrack of the ’70s with hits such as Reelin’ in the Years, Rikki Don’t Lose That Number, F.M., Peg, Hey Nineteen, Deacon Blues, and Babylon Sisters, culled from their seven platinum albums issued between 1972 and 1980 (including 1977’s ground breaking “Aja“). Critical esteem and popular demand continued to grow through the 80’s and into the 90s, when Donald and Walter reunited in the early ’90s, launching a string of sold-out tours that continue through today. In 2000 they released multi-Grammy winner (including Album Of The Year) “Two Against Nature”, and released its acclaimed follow-up “Everything Must Go” in 2003. They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.
