Black Keys Cancel Australian And New Zealand Tours Due To Exhaustion

    The Black Keys have blown up in the last year in a way they haven’t since they started eight years ago; “Tighten Up” is a hit, and Brothers was nominated for a Grammy. And the dudes have been on their grind, hard. But apparently they’ve worked themselves into exhaustion: They’ve canceled their upcoming Australia and New Zealand tours due to “exhaustion,” three days before it was supposed to launch (Jan. 20). The group has also canceled a stretch of their European tour in March, as well. Go here to see a statement on the cancellation on the band’s website. [Spinner
