Nashville, Tennessee based band, The Raconteurs, which features Jack White (The White Stripes), Brendon Benson (formerly solo) and Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler (The Greenhornes), are stepping into the 21st century and will be making limited edition double-CD sets of each concert on their current U.K. tour available to fans. The live sets are being made available through Concert Live (http://www.concertlive.co.uk/Raconteurs/index.html), and can be pre-ordered prior to the show, obtained via the website or may be purchased immediately after the concert at the venue.

The sets will be limited to 1,000 per show, and will feature unique artwork for each performance. The price of each set is ₤14.14, or can be bundled with a live, stripped-down version of the band’s new single, “Broken Boy Soldier,” recorded for KCRW in Los Angeles, for a total of ₤15.00 (approximately $28.00).

The Raconteurs follow in the footsteps of other bands, such as Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Metallica, Phish, The Black Crowes and The Allman Brothers Band, who have allowed fans the opportunity to purchase the ultimate concert souvenir—a professionally mixed, high-quality recording of the concert they attended.

Following the U.K. tour, the band will return to the States to play, among other dates, the Vegoose Festival in Las Vegas, several dates supporting Bob Dylan, and a two-night stay at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago to ring in the new year. A full list of confirmed dates can be found below.
