Setlist Coverage: Steely Dan’s Mood Swings Tour Keeps Rollin’

Steely Dan

Last week, Steely Dan kept on rollin’ toward “Pancake Day” with their 2013 Mood Swings tour. They played five gigs last week, and while the setlists remained fairly static (consistent with what we saw previously), they did manage a few notable switch-ups.

On Tuesday, July 23rd, the band ventured to Jacobs Pavilion in Cleveland, Ohio. The only change-up from their previous set in Toronto was swapping out Everything Must Go‘s “Green Book” with the Countdown to Ecstasy classic “King of the World.”

The next night, The Dan moved to another Ohio spot at Kettering’s Fraze Pavilion. The setlist remained the same, except for one major addition: Donald Fagen slipped in a solo interpretation of Beethoven’s “Für Elise” at the number 15 spot. The band’s next show — July 26th at the Louisville Palace Theatre in Louisville, Kentucky — kept the same line-up.

On July 27th, the audience at Detroit’s Fox Theatre were treated to “Black Friday.” This is the first time this year Steely Dan have played the swinging Katy Lied classic, which bumped “King of the World” out of the fluctuating number seven spot. The evening’s other eventful shake-up came toward the end of the main set, with the groovy Aja highlight “Deacon Blues” replacing “Babylon Sisters” at the number 13 spot. Meanwhile, “Für Elise” proved to be more than a fluke, staying firm in the set.

That 21-track setlist was maintained for the next gig the following night, at Milwaukee’s Riverside Theater.
