It looks like that's what the Steely Dan 2011 tour will be called. Shuffle Diplomacy Twenty Eleven. And it's just another surprising name for a Steely Dan tour.
It started out plain enough with Steely Dan In Japan in 1994, but since then the names of the tours have been intriguing, elaborate and/or slightly odd. How about the Art Crimes tour of 2000 and Steelyard "Sugartooth" McDan (and the Fab-Originees.com) in 2006. Or Think Fast, Steely Dan in 2008 and the 2009 tour, long enough to recieve two names; Rent Party '09 for the US dates and Left Bank Holiday for the European leg.
So far just one date is known; Tanglewood, Lenox, Massachusetts on July 26, with tickets on sale February 6. But it has been suggested the tour will run between July and November. Nothing official yet, though...
