Buy a Thrill: Catch Steely Dan at Palms Casino

The brainy jazz rockers stop at the Pearl at the Palms after an appearance at Coachella

The Internet practically imploded when Steely Dan, a less-than-obvious-choice, was announced as part of the lineup for Coachella, the spring music festival in Indio, Calif.

If you missed out on tickets to the sold-out shows, head to the Pearl at the Palms Casino on Apr. 11, when the brainy kings of ’70s jazz rock stop by on their Rockabye Gollie Angel tour with eight supporting musicians and three backing vocalists.

Guitarist Walter Becker and frontman and pianist Donald Fagen have been together since day one, compiling a four-decade catalog of hits, including “Reelin’ in the Years,” “Rikki Don't Lose That Number,” “F.M.,” “Peg,” “Hey Nineteen,” “Deacon Blues,” and “Babylon Sisters.” Their seven platinum albums, including the groundbreaking “Aja,” sold more than 40 million copies.

After breaking up 1981, citing exhaustion, Becker and Fagen reunited in the early ’90s and released multi-Grammy winner (including “Album Of The Year”) Two Against Nature in 2000. Their latest album, Everything Must Go, came out in 2003.

Tickets start at $93.50 and go on sale Friday, Jan. 30, at noon.
