Steely Dan Doing Shows Without Walter Becker

Steely Dan is carrying on without guitarist and founding member Walter Becker, who died on Sept. 3.

The band announced Monday they will do a short eight-city tour beginning Oct. 13 in Oklahoma. It includes two Ontario dates — Oct. 19 at in Orillia and Oct. 20 in Windsor.

“I intend to keep the music we created together alive as long as I can with the Steely Dan band,” Donald Fagen wrote in a tribute to Becker.

The group previously did a series of shows without Becker, who was ill. His last show with Steely Dan was on May 27.
