GAUCHO Show @ Beacon, August 12, 2009
By JerseyRip from Linden, NJ on 8/14/2009
Terific show, one of the best I've seen SD do. After the (7) GAUCHO songs, which were crisp and very well done, the balance of the show was extremely enjoyable. Special Guest Larry Carlton (lead guitar) was special. The horn section seemed to be almost "over-used", like (wer'e payin em to be here, let's use the heck outta them)! But, this show was worth the wait, as the original Gaucho show was the one cancelled from July 29th. Set list: Babylon Sisters, Hey Nineteen, Glamour Profession, Gaucho, Time Out of Mind, My Rival, Third World Man - Godwackers, I Got the Blues, Home at Last, Show Biz Kids, Deacon Blues, Peg, Josie, My Old School, Kid Charlemagne, and the only encore song Reelin' in the Years.

LOSE THE OPENING ACT
By FUNKY D from TUCSON AZ on 9/9/2008
THE SHOW I SAW WAS AT AN AMPHITHEATER AT AN INDIAN CASINO IN TUCSON,AZ. THE SOUND WAS GREAT, THE SET LIST WAS GREAT. MY ONLY NEGATIVES ARE MINOR. ONE, I DON'T THINK THEY NEED AN OPENING ACT, AND IF SO; USE SOME THING SHORTER AND DIFFERENT. THE JAZZ TRIO WAS ACCOMPLISHED, BUT UNECESSARY. TWO, WALTER BECKER (BLESS HIS HEART) SHOULDN'T BE THE ONE SPEAKING BETWEEN SONGS. MAYBE FAGEN IS SHY TO SPEAK, BUT I THINK THE FANS WOULD RATHER HEAR HIM ANYWAY.

Great music, Great performance, Great Seats, GREAT VENUE
Sorry could not stand their opening band, the jazz music is boring and way way way to long for each song. I was just about ready to leave and ride around in our limo for the night and let my husband see them. He also could not stand the jazz at all, but loves Steely Dan

steely dan in houston
By disc golfer from Houston on 8/22/2008
Concert was great and in a great location... any seat in there would have been good... Hard Rock right next door... could have used two more songs... but I guess you never hear ALL your favorites at any concert... overall, my fiancé and I really enjoyed the whole event..
