Steely Dan: Wembley Arena
John L. Walters, The Guardian, 11 September 2000
GREAT GIG, but what a shame not to hear 'What A Shame About Me'. It's the perfect singalong anthem for fans of Steely Dan, since something in it chimes with misfits, jazz-lovers and ill-groomed outsiders everywhere. And there are enough of us around to buy a million copies of Two Against Nature (their first studio album since 1980) and fill the immense Wembley Arena to hear the 13-piece touring manifestation, led by founders and songwriters Walter Becker and Donald Fagen.
Total word count of piece: 561
