Updated American concert plans from the likes of the influential Sonic Youth and The Cult fill the daily tour recap for October 7, as compiled by TicketNews.
Leading the day’s headlines is an announcement from country singer-songwriter Brad Paisley. The chart-topping musician will continue his American Saturday Night Tour through the new year with about two months of winter 2010 concerts, supported by Miranda Lambert and Justin Moore.
Comedian Robin Williams is back out on the road with his Weapons of Self-Destruction Tour. In addition to his previously announced routing, Williams has added seven shows at Town Hall in New York to the end of the itinerary, which now runs through early December.
Those are the full concert and tour updates on this Wednesday. Additional itinerary updates from the day are outlined in brief below:
The Cult will bring its much ballyhooed Love Live Tour back to the states this fall for a late-year run to follow its early summer dates and an early fall trek of Europe. The next batch of U.S. gigs is outlined from November 6 at The Fillmore in Detroit, MI, through November 15 at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA. Eight shows are scheduled in full, including gigs on November 7 at Main Street Armory in Rochester, NY; November 9 at the House of Blues in Cleveland, OH; November 10 at Wellmonth Theatre in Montclair, NJ; November 11 at The National in Richmond, VA; November 13 at Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, NC; and November 14 at Hard Rock Live in Orlando, FL.
Sonic Youth had to postpone some U.S. concert dates from earlier this fall until 2010 due to an injury. But the alt-rock group does have some stateside plans left on the 2009 calendar. In addition to previously announced shows on November 21 at Terminal 5 in New York, NY, and November 22-23 at Wilbur Theatre in Boston, MA, the Youth will also perform two gigs in the borough of Brooklyn. Those performances are set for November 24-25 at Music Hall of Williamsburg and end the band’s stateside performance schedule for the year. In January, they return with their postponed West Coast gigs, from January 4 at Rialto Theatre in Tucson, AZ, through January 9 at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA.
Devendra Banhart will promote the October 27 release of his album “What Will We Be” with a November tour of the eastern states and Canada.

ZZ Top is in full touring gear with a current round of European dates stretching through the end of October, but the bearded ones will be returning to North America in November for four shows in British Columbia, Canada. The Southern rock trio has lined up the engagements for November 18 at EnCana Event Centre in Dawson Creek, November 20 at South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton, November 21 at Interior Savings Centre in Kamloops, and November 22 at Entertainment and Sports Centre in Abbotsford.
Misfits have added a handful of events to their already lengthy fall 2009 tour itinerary.

White Rabbits have 22 dates ahead of them on their fall tour of North America. The indie rock crew continues on the road October 9 at Lansdowne Pub in Boston, MA, followed by an October 11 gig at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, NJ, and an October 17 show at Rock and Roll Hotel in Washington, DC, to get things rolling. The East Coast and Midwest itinerary ends with two shows in Chicago, IL, where the band will first stop on November 11 for a Schubas Tavern set before moving on to Lincoln Hall on November 12. Canadian concerts are October 23 at La Sala Rossa in Montreal, QC; October 24 at the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, ON; and November 6 at Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver, BC.
