ROCK AND ROLL MEANS WELL TOUR - FALL 2008
DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS AND THE HOLD STEADY HIT THE ROAD TOGETHER
You've heard the rumors - and this rock and roll wet dream is coming true.
|The Hold Steady|
Drive-By Truckers and The Hold Steady have teamed up to bring you the Rock and Roll Means Well Tour this Fall! Catch the double-rock show in cities across the country.
The bands will alternate who closes the shows throughout the tour, pre-sale begins Tuesday, August 19 at http://rockandrollmeanswell.frontgatetickets.com and the public on-sale starts Friday, August 22.
The tour is aptly named the Rock and Roll Means well tour. The name of the tour is taken from a lyric of one of Mike Cooley's songs, "Marry Me." The line is one of Craig Finn's favorite lyrics (which he often quotes) "rock and roll means well but can't help telling young boys lies."
"We're all really excited to tour with The Hold Steady. They're one of the greatest bands out there now and their new album is amazing. Craig writes songs I wish I'd written," says Patterson Hood.
Finn credits seeing DBT live on their Southern Rock Opera tour as the inspiration for him to start playing music again. USA Today recently called Southern Rock Opera "this century's best rock album."
The Drive-By Truckers have just wrapped a sold out tour of Europe and will play the Outside Lands Music Festival this weekend in San Francisco. Their latest album, Brighter Than Creations Dark was released in January and debuted at #37 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.
This is the dirty rock tour we've been waiting for. Get your tickets now and call in sick to work, this is one you don't wanna miss.
