We all know anniversary tours are all the rage for musicians these days, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting when a band as awesome as the Hold Steady announces they will celebrate an album as iconic as 2006’s Boys & Girls In America on the road this fall—and they’ll be doing it with keyboardist Franz Nicolay, who has not played with the band since 2010 and played a huge role in making B&GIA as memorable as it is.
“Our Boys & Girls In America album turns 10 this year and we are very excited!” the band writes. “We will be playing a limited number of live shows this fall to celebrate. Our old friend Franz Nicolay will be joining us.”
Dates for the Hold Steady’s Boys & Girls In America tour will be released May 18; in the meantime, press “play” and crank it up:
