First Aid Kit played The Riv with Van William (pics, video, setlist)

After debuting new songs from their then-unannounced new album on a 2017 tour, First Aid Kit kicked off 2018 with the release of Ruins, and now they’re on the road again, supporting the new album. The tour hit Chicago’s Riviera Theatre on Friday (2/2), where First Aid Kit played plenty of songs from the new album, along with old favorites and a cover of Heart’s “Crazy On You.” Their tour is being opened by Van William (aka Port O’Brien and WATERS frontman Van Pierszalowski), who joined First Aid Kit on stage to play their collaborative song “Revolution.” Pictures of the Chicago show are in the gallery above, and the setlist and a video of the First Aid Kit/Van William collab are below.

First Aid Kit’s tour continues, hitting NYC’s Beacon Theatre on February 13 (sold out but resale tickets are available). After that, they play Coachella, Bonnaroo, and more. Updated dates are listed below.
