Black Keys guitarist and singer Dan Auerbach has announced a 20-date tour in support of his new solo album “Waiting on a Song.” The eight-time Grammy winner will be joined by legendary blues musician Robert Finley starting in February 2018. Auerbach will also be joined by Shannon Shaw with special guests Shannon and the Clams.
The Easy Eye Sound Revue tour will kick off on Feb. 10 at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver, B.C. and hit major cities such as Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, Nashville, Brooklyn, and Chicago. The tour is currently scheduled to close out at Paramount Theatre in Denver on April 5.
Each night of the tour will feature performances from all three artists backed by the Easy Eye Sound house band composed of Gene “Bubba” Chrisman, Bobby Wood, Russ Pahl, and Dave Roe. Both Finley and Shaw are signed to Auerbach’s record label, Easy Eye Sound. Shannon and the Clams will release their new album, produced by Auerbach, via the label in February.
“Waiting on a Song” was Auerbach’s second solo album release June 2, 2017 and was the debut album for the musician’s record label. Auerbach has called the record a love letter to his current home town, Nashville, and was a collaboration with notable musicians including John Prine, Duane Eddy, Jerry Douglas, Russ Pahl, Pat McLaughlin, and Bobby Wood and Gene Chrisman of the Memphis Boys. Check out the first single,”Stand By My Girl” below.
Auerbach will also be Nov. 10 with John Prine at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington D.C. and on Nov. 11 at Aria Theater in Richmond, Virginia. On Nov. 27, Auerbach will also tape a performance for Austin City Limits with information on free passes available a week prior on the ACL’s Facebook and Twitter.
