Franz Nicolay rejoining The Hold Steady for ‘Boys & Girls in America’ 10th anniversary tour
The Hold Steady have announced that they're going to tour in honor of the 10th anniversary of their beloved third LP Boys and Girls in America. The run's exact dates will be announced on May 18, as detailed in a post on group's Facebook page. They also mention that keyboardist Franz Nicolay, who hasn't played in the band since 2010, will rejoin the act for the shows. This is especially exciting, because Franz's organ parts are such a crucial element of that record. Stay tuned for more.
