The Raconteurs Announce First Ever New Zealand Headline Show

Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce Grammy-winning Nashville band The RaconteursJack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler will perform an exclusive headline date in Auckland this April. This will be The Raconteurs’ very first performance in New Zealand, and anywhere worldwide since 2011! Tickets are on sale Wednesday 6 March via frontiertouring.com/theraconteurs.

With revered solo work and musical credits between them including The White Stripes (White), The Dead Weather (White, Lawrence), The Greenhornes (Lawrence, Keeler) and Blanche (Lawrence) – The Raconteurs’ are no strangers to critical acclaim. In December 2018 The Raconteurs made their long-awaited return, dropping two songs and their first new music in over 10 years. ‘Sunday Driver’ comes with a video directed by acclaimed photographer, filmmaker, inventor Steven Sebring. ‘Now That You’re Gone’ is captured by Beyoncé and Jay Z director Dikayl Rimmasch, its video featuring burlesque performer Gia Genevieve. Both tracks are out now via Third Man Records.

Making their debut with the rollicking 2006 single ‘Steady, As She Goes’, The Raconteurs’ debut album, Broken Boy Soldiers, entered the UK charts at #2, #7 in the US and #12 in NZ. Off the back of singles such as ‘Broken Boy Soldier’ and ‘Hands’, Mojo chose the record as their ‘Album of the Year’.

2008’s Consolers of the Lonely featured another kick-ass single, ‘Salute Your Solution’, and earned the band a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album. Just last month the band celebrated the record’s 10-year anniversary, announcing a special reissue package via the Third Man Vault subscription series.

With a confirmed new album on the cards, The Raconteurs are back – and not to be missed! Don’t delay in grabbing your tickets to The Raconteurs, live in Auckland this April!
