The Raconteurs Announce North American Headlining Tour

Last week, The Raconteurs finally let us all in on the details of Help Us Stranger, their first new album since 2008, and promised a North American tour to follow in support of the album. They’ve now unveiled those shows, an extensive, 32-date run that begins with a July 12 show in Jack White’s hometown of Detroit and runs through a mid-October stop in St. Louis, with two-night stands in Atlanta, Nashville and Tulsa.

White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler will also make a pair of previously announced festival appearances along the way, with sets at Woodstock 50 and Railbird in New York and Kentucky, respectively. The rockers are fresh off their first live show in eight years, a performance at White’s Third Man Records label’s 10-year anniversary celebration in Nashville over the weekend.

Tickets for the band’s North American headlining dates go on sale to the public this Friday, April 12, at 10 a.m. local time. You can grab yours right here.
