Donald Fagen and his band put on a great show on Thursday night. The brass section were outstanding, backing vocalists, the Dannettes, were superb, drummer, Keith Carlock put on a master class. Their sound was really good and the band gelled very well. A night to remember.
Drums a wee bit too loud in the mix (although couldn’t blame them with Mr Carlock in the chair!) but absolutely a dream come true to see one of my favourite bands live at last - enjoyed every second - Jon Herington’s SG sounded sublime ♥️
Stevie Winwood " gimme somemore lovin'" bought so long ago, played it non stop for years, both he and Donald Fagen are geniuses of our time superb, the same not true of the O2, cramped and Gigantic tickets caused confusion as i was told the doors would be shut at a point
I first saw Steely Dan in 1974 at the Rainbow so you could say I’m a fan! I have seen them each time they have toured, this particular band is the best yet, they have a superhuman drummer in Keith Carlock and. Brilliant guitarist in Jon Harrington the rest of the band’s pretty good as well The cherry on the cake was when they brought on Elliott Randall for the encore of “reeling in the years” Even Donald Fagan seemed relaxed and enjoying it, more chatty than usual A truly magical musical evening, roll on the next time By the way, my first time at the arena, not impressed, lack of seating room Next time please the O2!
Band was phenomenal as usual. A couple of fun surprises on By Popular Demand/Request night but I would have liked a few other songs instead. This is a subjective thing as the audience seemed very happy.
