We're incredibly pleased to announce the return of BluesFest to The O2 for its seventh year!
The three-day celebration of blues and rock 'n' roll will take place across the weekend of 27th - 29th October 2017, and we've got a great big pair of names to reveal as the first of this year's acts!
Making their first appearance in the UK for almost 10 years, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker’s supergroup Steely Dan, who have sold in excess of 40 million albums throughout the course of their career, will close the festival on Sunday 29th for what will be their only UK show of 2017. They will be joined on the bill by legendary, multi Grammy-winning soul and R&B hitmakers The Doobie Brothers.
Speaking of the double-bill, BluesFest director Leo Green says: “It’s a real coup for BluesFest to be presenting Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers at this year’s festival – they rarely perform in the UK and are two bands who have influenced so many artists from across the musical spectrum. This will be Steely Dan’s first UK show since 2009 and, on an incredible double bill that also includes The Doobie Brothers, we’re hoping that fans of quality music will be as excited about this first announcement as we are.”
