Bluesfest Welcome The Saboteurs To The 2019 Lineup
Christmas has come early thanks to our friends at Bluesfest.
Bluesfest has announced they will be bringing The Saboteurs to their 2019 lineup. This will be the first time ever that The Saboteurs have played in Australia.
The Saboteurs, known outside of Australia as The Raconteurs was formed in Detroit in 2005. Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler, hailed from other influential bands of the time and together released two albums, 'Broken Boy Soldiers' (2006) and the Grammy-Award winning 'Consolers Of The Lonely' (2008), spawning the singles: 'Steady As She Goes', 'Salute Your Solution', 'Many Shades Of Black' and 'Consoler Of The Lonely' .
The band will help us celebrate the festivals 30th Anniversary by closing Bluesfest on Easter Monday.
