Steely Dan Drops Out Of Eagles Tour Due To Illness

Due to a medical condition, Steely Dan has reportedly cancelled several tour dates with the Eagles.

According to Indianapolis’ Indy Star, Eagles founding member/drummer Don Henley told the audience at Gainbridge Fieldhouse that Steely Dan frontman Donald Fagen had been hospitalized, before thanking fellow rocker Steve Miller for filling in at the last minute. “The show must go on.”

Prior to Miller jumping in for the Indianapolis and the upcoming Detroit show on 10.01, Sheryl Crow filled in for Steely Dan at the Eagles’ Denver shows last week, and Vince Gill will be the opening act at the 10.15 Pittsburgh concert.

Expected to return to the stage on 10.17, an official statement from the rockers specifying Fagen’s illness or recovery time has yet to be released.

Earlier this year the Eagles announced their final The Long Goodbye tour with “The Eagles have had a miraculous 52-year odyssey, performing for people all over the globe; keeping the music alive in the face of tragic losses, upheavals and setbacks of many kinds.” “Credit and thanks go to our longtime management team, our dedicated road crew, and our exceptional backup musicians for providing skilled and steadfast support, throughout these many years. We know how fortunate we are, and we are truly grateful.”

The Eagles tour will wrap on 1.06.24 in Inglewood, California, and you can find the full list of dates here.
