The Black Keys will extend their worldwide tour in support of El Camino with the addition of U.S. dates in October including the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the famed Santa Barbara Bowl and US Airways Center in Phoenix. The Phoenix show will be October 9. Tegan and Sara will open the 8 p.m. show.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 18.
The first leg of the tour included sold-out shows at Chicago’s United Center, DC’s Verizon Center and two nights at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Of the live performances, the duo’s hometown paper, the Cleveland Plain Dealer said, “I’ve never known them to put on a bad show. And I’ve never witnessed them put on a better one than they did on this high-stakes occasion,” while Rolling Stone calls it, “their biggest, baddest tour ever.”
After headlining Coachella earlier this year, the duo will also appear as the headlining act at the 2012 Lollapalooza festival. Concert tickets and album packages are available at the band’s site. The Black Keys are teaming up with Tickets-for-Charity to offer fans access to some of the best seats in the house. Proceeds will benefit Community Support Services in Akron, Ohio and W.O. Smith Music School in Nashville, Tennessee.
