1974: Steely Dan Slips Into The UK

Around the third quarter of their All-American tour, Steely Dan took a short break in May to perform in the United Kingdom. 12 dates were planned, however all but the first five were cancelled due to Donald Fagen becoming ill. It was once reported Steely Dan performed in Germany in June during this tour, although the only evidence of this ever happening is from a magazine. Steely Dan would return to the US in June to complete the Pretzel Logic tour and perform their very last show until 1993.

Here is the average setlist from this tour.

  • 01. Bodhisattva
