Sold out event. Very good. However, yet another year when their Deep Tracks were not played, e.g. Boston Rag and Any World and Everything You Did. All due to lack of having his partner

I’ve been to 4 Dan concerts in last few years. They never play anything off Two Against Nature; favorite album. Why is that? They also hold back on Pretzel Logic and Gaucho. Very disappointing.

I love Steely Dan! They’re gifted, talented, incredible band. Yet, I wanted to be standing up the whole time. I felt I could have if they played their top songs. It only happened the last two songs. They could really get a crowd going if they made sure they played their five top-selling songs. I’m sure they want to play new stuff. But, us old geezers need the old standard HITS!!! Love you Steely Dan. Come back to us and help us stand up and rock and roll the whole night!!!

We were given the tickets by neighbors who could not attend at the last minute - $195 each, which if I had paid that money, I would not feel that I received value for my money. It may be time for Mr. Fagan to retire, his voice does not carry well. He also did not seem to appreciate his other musicians on stage, and seemed a bit of a loner, in his own band.

(June 2002) I saw Steely Dan at Wolf Trap last night. For me, the concert fell into the trap that many reunion tours fall into: the band -who is somewhat tired of playing its crowd-favorites for the 500th time- tries to "upgrade" its music. Danger! Danger! The songs are now hardly recognizable. SD last night added so much additional music to its songs that they became hardly recognizable. A five minute song from the Aja album became a nine minute version with drawn out guitar and horn rifts. This is okay for one or two songs, but NOT for the entire playlist. Additionally, SD had four signature songs that were known to the masses during its run in the 1970s and 1980s. They played two of them last night. Most of the patrons have not seen this great band live for some time (if at all). In addition to appealing to the studio musicians in the audience, the group should also appeal the average SD fan. Last night they certainly did not.

While I was really looking forward to this I have to say I was disappointed. Here’s why. The theater was perfect- my seats were great. Unfortunately mr fagans voice was in bad shape this night. But as he said- you have to roll the dice. So that wasn’t the only thing. As a long and loyal dan fan- I found that the songs they decided to play were just to vanilla . They had such a tremendous cast of musicians And could pull off anything , really. I would have liked to hear them play some more stuff from royal scan and Aja ( Jazier) but also after all of these years a little more interpretation of their own music . I really like some of the covers of the steely dan songs - particularly by the jazz crowd, and with the band they have I don’t think it would be much of a challenge to them to experiment a little. They certainly have toured a lot, and for folks like me - I just want a little more from my favorite band ever!

I went to the Steely Dan Show Saturday Night at the Orpheum Theater in Boston. I kept waiting for the pace to pick up. Started by playing the entire Night Fly-Donald Fagen record which put the whole audience into snooze mode. Even the Steely Dan songs that were eventually played were somewhat odd choices. Never really got rockin' in any way. The show was extremely well rehearsed, sounded great, very professional. But I think it left most fans wanting more great Steely Dan songs. Too many solo Fagen songs. Never got the crowd going.
