The Raconteurs "Help Us Stranger" EU Tour Kickoff Highlights

After a handful of festival performances where they've been teasing new music, The Raconteurs are officially underway on their "Help Us Stranger" tour in support of their forthcoming album of the same name.
They got their tour started with a show at London's Electric Ballroom on May 22nd where they performed a 17-song setlist that included a four-song encore. Then over the weekend, they headed to Victoria Park's All Points East Festival on May 25th, and performed a 14-song setlist that included a snippet of Alice Cooper's "School's Out" during "Broken Boy Soldier." The set was half Help Us Stranger tracks, and half older cuts.
The EU tour officially got started the night after, on May 26th, to a sold out gig in Paris. The official tour setlist carries and kicks off with Raconteurs classic - "Consoler of the Lonely." They've also been performing a Donovan cover of "Hey Gyp (Dig the Slowness)" at every set so far.
The setlist is crafted so that it showcases fan favorites with new cuts to get fans pumped on the upcoming release, which will drop on June 21st. The new songs fit seamlessly along their more staple tracks.
The main set in Paris ended on "Carolina Drama" before doing an encore that included hits like "Steady, as She Goes" and "Blue Veins." See that setlist below:

Last night (May 27), the tour touched down in Brussels for another sold-out show, where they tour-debuted Consolers of the Lonely deep cut "Many Shades of Black." The song hadn't been performed since 2011. Check out that setlist below:
