It wasn't quite two weeks ago that Steely Dan announced their return to the road this summer for a new U.S. trek that's been dubbed the Jamalot Ever After Tour.  The April 3 news featured only two confirmed dates, with a promise that more would be announced soon.  That announcement came this morning -- and it's an impressive outing.

Steely Dan will play 53 dates in 47 cities in the U.S. and Canada, beginning with a July 2 show in Portland, Oregon, including two shows in Washington.

The band's last tour, the oddly-titled Mood Swings: Eight Miles to Pancake Day trek, wrapped up this past October and featured the group playing a variety of special themed shows that included request nights and full performances of its Royal Scam, Aja and Gaucho albums.
