Donald Fagen and Steely Dan will close Bluesfest 2017 at London’s The O2 on Sunday 29th October where they’ll be joined on the bill by The Doobie Brothers.
Launched six years ago, Bluesfest runs from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th October and will take over both the main O2 arena plus the more intimate Indigo at The O2.
Previous performers at the festival include Robert Plant, BB King, Bad Company, Jeff Beck, Ronnie Wood, Van Morrison and Dave Matthews Band.
BluesFest Director Leo Green enthuses: “It’s a real coup for BluesFest to be presenting Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers at this year’s festival – they rarely perform in the UK and are two bands who have influenced so many artists from across the musical spectrum.
“This will be Steely Dan’s first UK show since 2009 and, on an incredible double bill that also includes The Doobie Brothers, we’re hoping that fans of quality music will be as excited about this first announcement as we are.”
