The Raconteurs Plot 2019 Tour

Olivia Jean
– The Raconteurs
The Raconteurs announced a major 2019 tour on Monday.

The Raconteurs returned to the stage Saturday for the first time since 2011, headlining the 10th anniversary celebration of member Jack White’s label Third Man Records in Nashville, Tenn.

But it turns out the supergroup – comprised of White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler – was only getting started. The alt-rockers announced a full-blown summer and fall tour on Monday, to complement the June 21 release of their third album, Help Us Stranger.

The tour follows the announcement of several international festival plays this spring, as well as stateside headlining appearances at the inaugural Railbird Festival in Lexington, Ky. on Aug. 10 and at Woodstock 50 in Watkins Glen, N.Y. on Aug. 16.

The Raconteurs’ North American dates kick off July 12 at Detroit’s Masonic Temple Theatre and conclude Oct. 18 at St. Louis’ The Pageant.  Other highlights of the itinerary include a two-night stand at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on August 29 and 30 and two nights in New York, at Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom and Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre, on Sept. 6 and 7, respectively.

The Raconteurs last played the Ryman in Sept. 2011, selling 2,197 tickets and grossing $92,917.

While The Raconteurs has laid dormant, the band’s members have not. White, particularly, has continued his career as one of this century’s most influential rock musicians, and has become one of live’s biggest draws. In 2018, he appeared on Pollstar‘s Year End Top 200 North American Tours chart with a gross of $6.6 million.
