Dan Auerbach Announces 2018 ‘Easy Eye Sound Revue’ Tour
Dan Auerbach is hitting the road in 2018 — and he's bringing some new friends along for the ride.
The Black Keys frontman is scheduled to begin his next solo tour early next year, but instead of merely serving as a showcase for his recent Waiting on a Song LP, he's using the dates to help expose audiences to the roster of his label, Easy Eye Sound. Aptly titled the Easy Eye Sound Revue, Auerbach's 20-stop tour is scheduled to begin Feb. 10 in Vancouver and run through April 5 in Denver.
Auerbach's opener on the Revue tour will be Shannon & the Clams, a new Easy Eye Sound signing whose Auerbach-produced debut LP will arrive in stores in February. Other performers include Easy Eye Sound artists Robert Finley and Shannon Shaw, as well as headlining sets from Auerbach — all of whom will be backed by the label house band, recently lauded by Relix as the "new Wrecking Crew" of Nashville.
Tickets for the Easy Eye Sound Revue dates will go on sale Nov. 3 at 10AM local time, and can be purchased through the label's official site. Prior to launching the Revue, Auerbach has a trio of solo shows on the calendar for November, including two with acclaimed singer-songwriter John Prine as well as a taping of the long-running live series Austin City Limits.
