Steely Dan, and The Doobie Brothers, have both been announced for BluesFest which takes place this year between Friday 27th and Sunday 29th October 2017, again within the various venues of The O2 Arena, Greenwich, London.
Donald Fagen and Walter Becker will be bring Steely Dan to the UK for the first time in nearly ten years for their only UK show this year, and with The Doobie Brothers joining them on the Sunday.
BluesFest Director Leo Green said of the announcement: "It’s a real coup for BluesFest to be presenting Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers at this year’s festival – they rarely perform in the UK and are two bands who have influenced so many artists from across the musical spectrum. This will be Steely Dan’s first UK show since 2009 and, on an incredible double bill that also includes The Doobie Brothers, we’re hoping that fans of quality music will be as excited about this first announcement as we are."
Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday 12th May, with tickets for the Sunday priced from £45 to £85, and will be available from the link below.
