The Raconteurs Announce Fall Tour Dates

Published: 2008-06-04
Though The Raconteurs are touring this summer for their recently released album, Consolers of the Lonely, they are extending the tour for this fall across North America as well. The alternative rock four-piece have announced eleven new dates starting on the 16th of September, in Portland, Oregon, where they are also playing a second show the following day. Thus far, the tour ends on the 1st of October in Atlanta, Georgia and one Canadian date is scheduled.

Consolers of the Lonely came out on March 25, 2008 on Warner Brothers Records and is the group's sophomore album. The album was produced by band members Jack White and Brendan Benson. What was unique about the album was that little-to-no promotion was made about its imminent release; instead, the band chose to announce its existence and release date only a week beforehand. The first single from the effort, "Salute your Solution", came out on the same day as the album.

The Canadian fall tour date for The Raconteurs is:

September 18th, Vancouver, BC – Malkin Bowl (Stanley Park)
