Black Keys Plot Extensive North American Arena Tour

The Black Keys today announced dates for an extensive 31-date arena tour of North America called, fittingly enough, the “Let’s Rock” tour. Special guests Modest Mouse will provide support on all dates, while Shannon & the Clams, repeat repeat, and Jessy Wilson will each open select shows. The outing will kick off September 23 in Denver, CO and will make stops in Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta, Austin, Los Angeles and more before wrapping November 24 in Vancouver, BC.

Tickets for all dates go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, March 22 at 10 AM local time; the group has partnered with Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform; Citi is the tour’s official presale credit card.

The Black Keys recently debuted the new song “Lo/Hi,” the first new music from the band since their 2014 album, “Turn Blue.” A new album is expected in the coming weeks; the group’s two members,

Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, have worked extensively on solo projects and outside production and songwriting efforts in the five years since their last album. Auerbach formed the Easy Eye Sound record label, named after his Nashville studio, in 2017, with the release of his second solo album, “Waiting on a Song,” and produced albums by Dee White and Yola. Patrick Carney has produced and recorded music with Calvin Johnson, Michelle Branch, Damns of the West, Tobias Jesso, Jr., and wrote the theme music for the Netflix TV show BoJack Horseman with his late uncle, Ralph Carney.
