Black Keys Announce Spring Tour With Arctic Monkeys

    The Black Keys’ seventh album, El Camino, is out next week, and it’s sure to be their mega breakthrough: After “Tighten Up” was on the charts last year, El Camino became the most anticipated rock album of the year, pretty much. The group is set to conquer the world on their spring tour, then, as they hit the hockey arenas of North America with the Arctic Monkeys in tow in spring. The tour takes them from Cincinnati to and to points on the east coast. Here are the dates. Expect the Keys’ tour itinerary to get longer.
