Steely Dan add date at Humphreys Concerts, while Cuban music festival show falls through


A Steely Dan performance has been added to the 2019 Humphreys Concerts by the Bay season schedule.

The Sept. 25 date here will mark the band’s first San Diego appearance since its two-show run at Humphreys in April 2017, which took place less than five months before the death of Steely Dan co-founder Walter Becker.

The group is now led solely by keyboardist and singer Donald Fagen, who co-founded Steely Dan with Becker in 1972. Fagen is now the only original member of the band who is still on board.

Tickets for Steely Dan’s Sept. 25 Humphreys go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at They are priced at $190 each. That is $5 more than tickets cost for the band’s two 2017 shows at the same venue, both of which sold out. Dinner and hotel packages are also available for the Sept. 25 concert.

Meanwhile, the May 23 Humphreys concert by El Gran Festival de Musica Cubana, an all-star lineup of Cuban artists, has been canceled, along with the rest of the tour. “Scheduling conflicts” are being cited as the reason for the cancellation, which was apparently prompted by the failure of some of the tour’s performers to obtain U.S. visas.

Tickets for the El Gran Festival de Musica Cubana concert here can be refunded at point of purchase.
