Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

The Raconteurs have announced that they will be performing at the inaugural MI Fest in Brooklyn, Michigan on September 17.

The band, which consists of Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence of the Greenhornes and Dead Weather, and Patrick Keeler, has not yet revealed any information about any potential additional tour dates this year. This will be their first live show in two years.

Sheryl Crow will be co-headlining MI Fest. Crow and the Raconteurs will be joined by other Michigan-based artists, including Mitch Ryder, the Romantics, the Rockets, Ty Stone & the Truth, former Grand Funk Railroad frontman Mark Farner, and Alto Reed of Bob Seeger's Silver Bullet Band.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
