After Steely Dan guitarist and co-founder Walter Becker died September 2nd, lead singer and co-founder Donald Fagen promised he would “keep the music we created together alive.” And he’s wasting no time.

Billboard notes that Fagen will kick off an eight-show North American tour starting starting October 13, with a concert at the WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Oklahoma.

Steely Dan last played without Becker in July, for the Classic East and Classic West festival shows in both New York and Los Angeles, respectively.  Illness forced Becker to bow out of both dates.

Here are the new Steely Dan fall tour dates:

10/13 — Thackerville, OK, WinStar World Casino and Resort
10/16 — Grand Rapids, MI, Van andel Arena
10/17 — Buffalo, NY, Shea’s Performing Arts Center
10/19 — Orillia, ON, Casino Rama Resort
10/20 — Windsor, ON, Caesars Windsor
10/22 — Wallingford, CT, Oakdale Theatre
10/24 — Baltimore, MD, Pier Six Pavillion
10/25 — National Harbor, MD, MGM National Harbor
