Steely Dan


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Steely Dan rocking out in Oklahoma City isn’t anything new, but it has been a while. The last time jazz-rock gods Walter Becker and Donald Fagen visited this great city was in 1972 — as in more than four decades ago — and that’s why the band’s triumphant return will be a more intimate event with limited seating. The show begins at 8 p.m. Monday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave. Tickets are $46-$122. Call 800-745-3000 or visit chesapeakearena.com.

OKG7 things to do
