Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce Grammy-winning Nashville band The SaboteursJack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler (known outside of Australia as The Raconteurs) – will perform three exclusive headline dates in Auckland, Melbourne and Sydney in April 2019.

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 Saboteurs are no strangers to critical acclaim. In December 2018 they 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 and inventor Steven Sebring. ‘Now That You’re Gone is captured by Beyoncé and Jay Z’s 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 Saboteurs’ debut album, Broken Boy Soldiers, entered the UK charts at #2, #7 in the US, #12 in NZ and #14 in AU. 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 Saboteurs are back and not to be missed! Don’t delay in grabbing your tickets to The Saboteurs, live in Auckland, Melbourne and Sydney this April!
