A National Ticketmaster Presale begins Wednesday August 22 at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets for the public go on sale Saturday, August 25 at noon local time.
"We are super happy to be touring with Art Brut," said frontman Craig Finn. "I believe Eddie Argos to be one of the finest current lyricists in rock. I believe he completely understands the place for both humor and honesty in rock 'n' roll."
Since the October '06 release of Boys and Girls in America, The Hold Steady have proven their road-worthiness with almost 300 shows played throughout the U.S., U.K., and Europe. RollingStone.com recently included The Hold Steady in their list of "Top 20 Live Bands Right Now." Plus, the band's mind-blowing performances at Festivals like Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, as well as their sold-out club tours, shows that fans just can't get enough of them.
Currently, the band is in the U.K., where they opened for The Rolling Stones in Dublin and will headline the Carling stages at both the Leeds and Reading Festivals. The Hold Steady's European tour finds them performing in Croatia for the first time. They will wind up their summer with a free show in New York City on September 17 at 7 World Trade Center.
