Steely Dan and the Doobie Brothers are gearing up to rock down the highway for an upcoming co-headlining tour.
The dates kick off May 10 at the PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte, N.C. The extensive tour will bring the two bands to cities including San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Denver, and Toronto. The routing wraps up with a show at the Bethel Woods Center For The Arts July 14 in Bethel, N.Y.
A presale for select shows will be available to Citi card members beginning Jan. 10. General tickets go on sale Jan. 12.
The tour marks Steely Dan’s first major outing since the death of co-founder Walter Becker in September. “I intend to keep the music we created together alive as long as I can,” co-founder Donald Fagen said in a Facebook post at the time.
The band played a handful of shows in the first-half of 2017, including a nine-show residency at The Venetian’s Opaline Theatre in Las Vegas, which sold a total of 14,422 tickets and grossed $1.8 million. The band also played sets at Classic East in New York and Classic West in Los Angeles.
The Doobie Brothers completed a tour last year, in addition to playing a couple of co-headlining dates with ZZ Top, all of which sold out or nearly sold out. Highlights from the band’s tour include a sold-out show at Humphrey’s Concerts By The Bay in San Diego, which grossed $138,278, and a near sell-out at Hard Rock Live in Northfield, Ohio, which grossed $143,347.
