Legendary jazz/rock act Steely Dan, planning to embark on its first tour in three years July 23 in Costa Mesa, Calif., has announced a second leg of dates that stretch into the fall. The trek will now wind down with an Oct. 4 show in Concord, Calif. The tour comes in support of "Everything Must Go," the group's forthcoming Reprise studio album.

The new tour dates start with a Sept. 10 engagement in Wallingford, Conn. and include two-night stints at New York's Roseland and Los Angeles' Universal Amphitheater. Stops in Atlanta, Memphis, Dallas, Phoenix, San Diego, and Tampa, Fla., are also on the list. The second leg will start 10 days after the close of the first, and will bring the total amount of Steely Dan shows on the tour to 40.

Due June 10, "Everything Must Go" will be the follow-up to 2000's "Two Against Nature," which was the Donald Fagen/Walter Becker-led group's first album since the 1980 release "Gaucho." "Two Against Nature" went on to win the Grammy for album of the year and has sold 1 million copies to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

"Everything Must Go" finds group leaders Donald Fagen and Walter Becker backed by drummer Keith Carlock, keyboardists Ted Baker and Bill Charlap, and guitarists Jon Herrington and Hugh McCracken. Beyond his usual bass and guitar duties, Becker takes the mic on one as-yet-unnamed tune, marking his first lead vocal in Steely Dan's history.
