Steely Dan, known for jazz-inflected FM radio staples such as “Peg,” “Reelin’ in the Years” and “Hey Nineteen,” last visited Boise when the group headlined at Outlaw Field at the Idaho Botanical Garden in 2013. Co-founder and guitarist Walter Becker died in 2017, but co-founder and singer Donald Fagen continues to lead the band.

The Doobie Brothers, who hit it big in the 1970s with hits such as “Black Water,” “Listen to the Music” and “Rockin’ Down the Highway,” last performed in Boise at the Western Idaho Fair in 2014.
