Steve Miller Band Will Replace Steely Dan On Eagles Tour
Steve Miller Band is set to replace Steely Dan as the Eagles‘ opening act for their Long Goodbye tour.
Following the announcement of the health issue of Steely Dan after the first few weeks of the trek, the Steve Miller Band will temporarily fill in for their spot. The last stop Steely Dan got to perform at took place on Sept. 20 in Elmont, New York. After that show, Sheryl Crow served as the opening act for two Eagles concerts on Oct. 5 and 6.
The Steve Miller Band stepped in for the Oct. 9 show and continued on Oct. 10 in Indianapolis, and again this upcoming Oct. 13 in Detroit and 17 in Cleveland. While on Oct. 15 in Pittsburgh, Vince Gill, a touring member of the Eagles, will also be included in the opening of the show.
Although there are still no further updates about which members of Steely Dan are ill or the severity of the situation, they are still slated to perform for the next date with the Eagles on Nov. 2 in Atlanta.
Meanwhile, the Eagles are currently set to be on the road until early 2024, ending with a pair of shows in Los Angeles on Jan 5. and 6. The Long Goodbye tour is expected to be the band’s final major trek. The Eagles said in a previous statement:
“We hope to see as many of you as we can before we finish up.
“Most importantly, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for embracing this band and its music. At the end of the day, you are the reason we have been able to carry on for over five decades. This is our swan song, but the music goes on and on.”
