Official: The 2011 Steely Dan tour!

After a couple of months of speculation and three dates advertised elsewhere the official comfirmation is here in the form of an updated homepage at steelydan.com:

http://www.steelydan.com/Two of the dates are listed; Thackerville, OK - Winstar Casino, July 13 and Lenox, MA - Tanglewood, July 26. The July 19 date in Cincinatti is so far not up on steelydan.com, but as it is written: "Watch this space for much more touring news, coming soon".

And as we at Radio Dupree are no strangers to grasping at straws, we gladly acknowledge the choice of blue and yellow on the homepage as a hint that the band will indeed be back in Sweden this year. :)

(Proud Swedish flag partly obscured by assorted Abba members)

May we suggest the 44th Umeå Jazz Festival? Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald have all played it. How about some Steely Dan? (It would also reduce our travel expenses to local bus fare ).

lol. have not visited the home page of SD.com yet, only read the newsletter. and the colors, well, if WB writes a song about swedish ginger cookies, there simply has to be a connection with your homeland, right? either way, the Shuffle Diplomacy theme may suggest the United Nations will soon be overthrown by a new order of some kind. the steely way?
