Dan Auerbach recruited artists signed to his Nashville label Easy Eye Sound for a 2018 "revue tour." Robert Finley, Shannon Shaw and special guests Shannon & the Clams will join the Black Keys singer for a 20-date trek that launches February 10th in Vancouver and concludes April 5th in Denver.
The Easy Eye Sound house band will back Auerbach and all of the featured artists. This group of acclaimed session legends includes drummer Gene Chrisman (Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin), keyboardist Bobby Wood (Presley, Dusty Springfield), pedal-steel guitarist Russ Paul (Elton John, Leon Russell) and bassist Dave Roe (Johnny Cash, Sturgill Simpson). They previously appeared on Auerbach's recent solo LP, Waiting on a Song.
Tickets for the tour go on sale November 3rd at 10 a.m. local time via the Easy Eye Sound website.
Auerbach has three tour dates scheduled for 2017. He will open a pair of shows for John Prine – with whom he co-wrote the title-track from Waiting on a Song – on November 10th in Washington D.C. and November 11th in Richmond, Virginia, followed by a set for PBS live performance series Austin City Limits on Monday, November 27th.
Easy Eye Sound will issue a seven-inch sampler, Good Sound Comes Back Around Vol. 1, on Friday, November 24th as part of Record Store Day's Black Friday event. The disc previews upcoming Easy Eye Sound releases, along with an exclusive and unreleased track ("Cellophane Angel") Auerbach recorded with the Preservation Hall Band.
