Raconteurs Announce North American Tour
The Raconteurs will spend the summer playing venues across North America. The Jack White side project will release Help Us Stranger, their first album in 11 years, on June 21.
The tour will begin on July 12 at the Masonic Temple Theatre in Detroit and end on Oct. 18 at the Pageant in St. Louis. The dates also include a stop at the Woodstock 50 festival in Watkins Glen, N.Y., on Aug. 16.
Tickets go on sale to the general public April 12 at 10AM local time, with a pre-sale for members of White's Third Man Records Vault beginning tomorrow at 10AM; another pre-sale for American Express cardholders begins on Wednesday at 10AM.
You can see all the dates below and get full details at the band's website. All ticket purchases will include a CD of the new record; fans will be given the option of upgrading to a black vinyl version.
Help Us Stranger marks the first new music from the Raconteurs since 2008's Consolers of the Lonely and their third album overall. It includes 11 compositions by White and Brendan Benson, as well as a cover of Donovan's "Hey Gyp (Dig the Slowness)."
The group premiered about half of the new material -- their first show in eight years -- over the weekend, performing in Nashville to celebrate the 10th anniversary of White's Third Man Records.
