In his tribute to Steely Dan co-founder and guitarist Walter Becker—who passed away on September 3 at the age of 67—fellow co-founder Donald Fagen vowed to "keep the music we [him and Becker] created together alive as long as I can with the Steely Dan band."

Today, Fagen has fufilled that promise, announcing a series of North American Steely Dan shows that will take place in October.

The band will hit a couple of stops each in the Midwest, Ontario, Canada and the Northeast, before heading to the United Kingdom for a few shows with the Doobie Brothers.

In his tribute to Becker, Fagen called him his "friend, writing partner and bandmate" of 50 years.
