Steely Dan live 2011: Two more dates plus band announced

Over on two more dates have been added. Both go on so called pre-sale tomorrow (March 1) followed by on general sale March 4. That gives us a total of four shows so far:

New dates:

Jul 23 Canandaigua, NY - Constellation Brands * Pre-sale/General sale
Opening act: Sam Yahel. <- Was also the opening act for a handful of the 2009 shows.

Aug 02 Columbia, MD - Merriweather Post Pavilion * Pre-sale/General sale

Previously announced:

Jul 13 Thackerville, OK - Winstar Casino * TBA

Jul 26 Lenox, MA - Tanglewood * On sale now

Still missing is the July 19 date in Cincinnati, that was up on Ticketmaster for a short while before it disappeared again.

And who'll be part of the Steely Dan band this time around? Well, if you are to beleieve the info pdf supplied by Constellation Brands on the homepage it's a return of the 2009 version of Steely Dan with the exception of backing vocalists Tawatha Agee and Janice Pendarvis. Cindy Mizelle from 2008 is back. But, then again, things have been known to change during a long tour.
For the show, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker are back with their awesome group of players including Keith Carlock (drums); Jon Herington (guitar); Freddie Washington (bass); Jim Beard (keys); Michael Leonhart, Walt Weiskopf, Roger Rosenberg and Jim Pugh (horns); plus background singers Carolyn Leonhart, Cindy Mizelle, and Catherine Russell.
