The Black Keys Announce 'Turn Blue World Tour'

by Photo of Ross Bernhardt

Cage the Elephant, Jake Bugg and St. Vincent will all open for the Keys during their three-month tour.

The Black Keys have a new album coming out (which is actually streaming now over at iTunes), and new albums usually correlate to new tours. That's exactly what happened this morning as Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney announced their Turn Blue World Tour with an odd parody press conference video. Auerbach heads to the podium and starts to make his announcement before the entire audience breaks out in laughter. The same audience won't even let Carney speak before booing him mercilessly. I don't quite get the video, but they always go outside the box with their content.

But the news of a Black Keys tour is always welcome because they put on an absolutely amazing live show. We saw them play in NYC back in 2012 and they ruled then. Nothing has changed much except for the fact that they now have a new album full of great music to play. The energy the two can bring to their songs is just fabulous, and the growth they've experienced over the past five years is all deserved.

Joining the Keys on tour for selected dates will be Cage the Elephant, Jake Bugg, and St. Vincent. The tour kicks off on September 5 at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, OH and wraps up on December 21 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, MO.  In total, the band will play 42 dates in the U.S. and Canada. Check out the full list of tour dates below after you watch the interesting video above.
