Tour blitz unravels throughout morning; Vultures sitting on summary of concert plans

Let there be no doubt that an orchestrated campaign has been in place to announce a wave of Them Crooked Vultures concert plans all on one day.

After earlier revelations today of a six-date jaunt through the United Kingdom for which tickets go on sale this Friday, it has now been confirmed the supergroup with John Paul Jones will play an Oct. 2 set at the Austin City Limits festival.

All tickets and passes for the event are already sold out.

This marks a return to U.S. soil, which two out of three band members -- drummer Dave Grohl and singer/guitarist Josh Homme -- call home although the majority of their band's live work was conducted in Europe. Only their debut concert, set at a Lollapalooza afterparty in the Chicago club Metro, was in America.

Almost certainly, more tour dates can be expected to trickle out today as we await official word through the band's own e-mail newsletter, "The Crooked Times."
