Opening Night | Steely Dan Opens Tour In Atlantic City

Legendary jazz-rock icons Walter Becker and Donald Fagen kicked off their latest Steely Dan tour last night at Revel Ovation Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. The first stop of the band's Mood Swings: 8 Miles To Pancake Day Tour, which will make over four dozen stops throughout North America, featured a setlist that drew from each of the pair's '70s studio albums with the exception of Katy Lied. Rarities included "Your Gold Teeth," Fagen's "New Frontier," "Green Book" off 2003's Everything Must Go and "Razor Boy."

While The Dan played plenty of hits on opening night such as "Hey Nineteen," "Josie," "Reelin In The Years" and "Kid Charlemagne," there were plenty of the band's best known songs that didn't make last night's set including "FM," "Rikki Don't Lose That Number," "Do It Again" and "Dirty Work." Becker and Fagen were backed by an 11-piece band throughout the night.
