  • Tickets for Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper's Pepsi Center show go on sale Friday, Jan. 12.
There are a number of reasons why, in the wake of Walter Becker's September passing, it would make no sense to try to record another Steely Dan album. Given his career-long writing partnership with cofounder Donald Fagen, and the absence of their original sidemen, the result would simply be another Donald Fagen solo album.

But going out on tour is an entirely different story, with Fagen always taking on the role of lead singer/keyboardist and a catalogue of hits that have stood the test of time longer than most. That will continue to be the case on June 12, when Steely Dan are joined by the even more venerable Doobie Brothers at the Pepsi Center. After that, the venue will keep the nostalgia flowing with two more legacy acts, Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper, on Aug. 22.

Tickets for both concerts go on sale Jan. 12. Other new and noteworthy shows announced this week include American rap duo Ces Cru at the Black Sheep, UK punk band Slaves at the Marquis, and Vampire Weekend cofounder Rostam at Globe Hall.
