Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Steely Dan bring their jazz-infused rock to the Mann main stage Saturday, September 21st.

Legendary jazz-rock icons Walter Becker and Donald Fagen have announced that Steely Dan will hit the road again in 2013, taking their Mood Swings: 8 Miles To Pancake Day Tour to over four dozen stops throughout North America.

He will perform in Philadelphia at the Mann on Saturday, September 21st. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, April 20th at 10 am.

On-stage, Donald and Walter will be joined by those same eight brilliant supporting musicians, now appearing as The Bipolar Allstars (featuring Keith Carlock on drums, Freddie Washington on bass, Jim Beard on keyboards, and Jon Herington on guitar), along with The Borderline Brats — three sublime, soulful songbirds.

Together, they will treat audiences to selections from The Dan's extraordinary four-decade catalog, rich with infectious tunes, bodacious harmonies, irresistible grooves, and sleek, subversive lyrics, punctuated by blazing solo work and rich ensembles. As always with the adventurous Fagen and Becker, a few surprises may be in store as well.
