The Raconteurs Announce First Show in Eight Years
The Raconteurs will officially return to the stage to perform together for the first time in eight years next month.
The band’s performance will be part of a 10th Anniversary celebration for Third Man Records and their Nashville location taking place on April 6 in the Nashville location’s “Blue Room.”
Per Third Man Records’ official website, Lillie Mae, Craig Brown Band, Teddy & The Rough Riders, The Dirtbombs, The Gories, Detroit Cobras, Quintron & Miss Pussycat, Soledad Brothers, and Todd Albright are also scheduled to perform. “Special guests” include Margo Price, Alison Mosshart, Carla Azar, Joshua Hedley, Dave Buick and more.
General admission tickets will cost $75 and will go on sale Friday, March 15 at 1 PM. Third Man Vault Members will have access to “Ultra Tickets” for $150 that include an exclusive Raconteurs 7”, priority access to Blue Room performances and host of other goodies. Complete ticket information can be found at ThirdManRecords.com.
This show announcement comes about a week after The Raconteurs were reported by Variety as being part of the Woodstock 50 lineup. So far, that performance has yet to be officially confirmed.
The Raconteurs are currently working on the follow-up to 2008’s Consolers of the Lonely and is expected to be released later this year. In the lead-up to the album’s release, the band released a double A-side single, “Sunday Driver” and “Now That You’re Gone,” in December 2018.
