    Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Steely Dan dazzled the public and critics alike in 2009 with their classic-albums-in-full "Rent Party Tour." Now the band is responding to overwhelming popular demand and returning to give fans more Steely Dan action with a new summer tour, "Shuffle Diplomacy Twenty Eleven." This year's tour, which kicks off in Seattle on July 2nd and concludes in Boston on September 28th, will showcase greatest hits and deep cuts alike; plus select cities will feature performances of complete albums plus fan voting online to determine a night's set. Steely Dan masterminds Walter Becker and Donald Fagen have announced this year's program will also include special guests, and an idealistic strategy for World Peace. Acclaimed jazz artist Sam Yahel is on board as the tour's main support act.

    For "Shuffle Diplomacy Twenty Eleven," Donald Fagen and Walter Becker are back with their awesome group of players, now dubbed the Miles High Big Band, and their saucy backup trio, the Embassy Brats. The Band and the Brats include Keith Carlock (drums); Jon Herington (guitar); Freddie Washington (bass); Jim Beard (keys); Michael Leonhart, Walt Weiskopf, Roger Rosenberg and Jim Pugh (horns); plus background singers Carolyn Leonhart, Cindy Mizelle, and Catherine Russell.
