Dan Auerbach to Tour North America in November with Justin Townes Earle, Jessica Lea Mayfield

Dan Auerbach 2009 Nov Tour Poster

Following a stellar two-night set in Austin at Austin City Limits and his official ACL Aftershow at Antone's, Dan Auerbach is set to begin a three-week North American tour, with his touring band The Fast Five, beginning November 5 at Newport Music Hall in Columbus, Ohio, and running through the 21st at the Cannery Ballroom in Nashville, with two stops in Canada along the way. Joining Dan and his band for the whole length of the tour are Justin Townes Earle and Jessica Lea Mayfield. Unfortunately, six stops that were previously on tap for December—in Milwaukee; Minneapolis; Chicago; Cleveland; Bloomington, Indiana; Newport, Kentucky—have been canceled due to a scheduling conflict.

After the recent show at Antone's in Austin, New York Times music critic Nate Chinen wrote that Dan's "guitar playing was raucously astute; his singing was urgently soulful. And his backing band, chiefly made up of members of the country-soul group Hacienda, tackled every groove with an avid snarl."

Come hear Dan and his band "stomping through songs from his fine solo debut, Keep It Hid," as Chinen described teh Antone's set, at these upcoming November tour dates. For more information with start times and links to each venue, visit
