Steely Dan 2013 tour in July - October?

A possible tour for Steely Dan in 2013 has been mentioned by Donald Fagen in interviews, but nothing has been confirmed yet. It's usually March, April before any news of a new tour is official.

That being said a post on the Bluebook where Steely Dan fans gather has reminded the fans of a (possible) tour in 2013.

The cryptic "7/13-10/13" from regular poster Lewis - with a great track record of cryptic but correct inside information - has been interpreted as meaning the tour will start in July and end in October.

Someone suggested that if this really is a sign of a 2013 tour it could just as well be another one for The Dukes Of September (Fagen, Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs).

We wait. And see.

UPDATE March 7, 2013: Yes! Two dates out in the open. See more here.

Michael McDonald's website has a list of scattered tour dates throughout 2013, including at least one with Boz Scaggs. A number of these dates are between July and October, so that would seem to rule out a Dukes of September tour during that time.

You're correct, Eric! And with the two Ravinia shows in August announced today it looks like Steely Dan will be touring this summer again!

The tour is real. Hitting Utah for the first time in 40 years.

Great venue

Humphrey's in San Diego on August 21. Good thing I got my tickets early because it looks like they're already sold out.
