Jazz-rock outfit Steely Dan have confirmed a two-month summer road trip across North America which they've dubbed the "Jamalot Ever After" tour.

The group, helmed by Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, will begin the 47-city journey with a July 2 performance in Portland, OR. The outing hits theaters, arenas and casinos from coast to coast before wrapping up Sept. 17 in Baltimore, MD.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will be backed by an eight-piece band, consisting of drummer Keith Carlock, guitarist Jon Herington, bassist Freddie Washington, keyboardist Jim Beard, trumpeter/keyboardist Michael Leonhart, trombonist Jim Pugh, and saxophonists Walt Weiskopf and Roger Rosenberg. Three backup vocalists—Cindy Mizelle, Carolyn Leonhart-Escoffery and La Tanya Hall—will also join the musicians on stage.
