The Raconteurs‘ set list ran:


‘Steady, As She Goes’

‘Broken Boy Soldier’

‘It Ain’t Easy’

‘Blue Veins’

The Raconteurs play their first full-size gig in the US on Friday (April 7) at New York’s Irving Plaza.

The band release their first single proper ‘Steady, As She Goes’ on April 24, with ‘Broken Boy Soldiers’ following on May 15.
