The Black Keys Announce Tour

    With the Black Keys’ 2010 album, Brothers, receiving a pair of Grammy’s and continued pushes through videos and singles, this tour announcement was only inevitable. The only other news I expected to post about the blues-rock duo was that they were working on a new EP or full-length, though I expect they will give Brothers ample time to breathe. After a few festival shows in April, May, and early June, the Black Keys will hit the road for a summer tour of North America with Cage the Elephant opening. I expect we will see more U.S. dates appearing soon as most of these are in the Midwest and Canada.
