Steely Dan live 2009: One more US date added

There's one new date added to the Rent Party '09 Tour (i.e. the US leg):

Aug 07 - Mashantucket, CT - Foxwoods Casino - Tickets go on sale May 8 -

No more additions to the European Left Bank Holiday touring schedule.

As far as the US dates go the new issue of Rolling Stone (Bob Dylan on the cover) add a few more bits to the puzzle. The promised "multi-night stands of special setlist shows in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and Chicago " is eight shows in New York with four each in the other cities mentioned.

We haven't read the Rolling Stone issue in question - we're three issues behind here in Sweden - but Jim "Hoops" McKay over on the Dandom Bluebook have confirmed the info about the number of shows in each town.

Walter Becker is also quoted saying that for the request nights were the ticket buyng audience get to vote online for what songs are going to be played, Steely Dan might leave more "discomfiting songs like Through With Buzz and Change of the Guard off the ballot. Otherwise it might be a fuckin' free-for-all."

Just what we've been wondering about. Germany's been on the past few tours, so we're interpreting the lack of any German date this time as a sign that all the European dates haven't been finalized. But as time passes without any news we're starting to doubt any more dates will be announced.
