Dan Auerbach has announced a North American tour that he’s referring to as The Easy Eye Sound Revue.
This run of 20 shows will be headlined by Auerbach, and will feature fellow Easy Eye Sound artists Robert Finley, Shannon Shaw and Shannon & the Clams. Each artist—including Auerbach—will be backed by the label’s house band, which features keyboardist Bobby Wood (Elvis Presley), pedal-steel guitarist Russ Paul (Elton John, Leon Russell), bassist Dave Roe (Johnny Cash, Sturgill Simpson) and drummer Gene Chrisman (Presley, Aretha Franklin).
The tour—which is set to begin in February in Vancouver and will run through early April—is in support of Auerbach’s second solo album, Waiting on a Song.
Speaking to Guitar World about Waiting on a Song—and the legendary session musicians (many of whom are joining him on the tour) who backed him on it—Auerbach said “I met some amazing people and kept ’em busy. Tried to get ’em in the studio as much as I possibly could.”
“We wrote and recorded about 60 or 70 songs, and the 10 on the album were a bunch of tunes that we thought worked well together from that group.”
