Black Keys Announce ‘Turn Blue’ Tour

Subscribe to KATS: THE Rock Station on

Two days after they made their new album available as a free stream, the Black Keys have just announced the tour dates for ‘Turn Blue.’ All of the dates right now are in the U.S., with a couple in Canada. Presumably, more dates will be added later, since this is being called a “world tour.”

The tour kicks off on Sept. 5 with two shows in Ohio, the band’s home state. Presale tickets for the shows go on sale the same day the album comes out, May 13. General tickets will be available on May 16. You can see the full list of dates below.

The Keys put together a video to announce the tour, which you can watch above. Singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney each stand in front of a booing audience as they make the news at a mock press conference. Cage the Elephant, Jake Bugg and St. Vincent have all been tapped as opening acts on the tour at different stops.

The bluesy, feverishly bone-chilling ‘Turn Blue’ showcases some electronic experimentation, mainly due to producer Danger Mouse’s influence, but there’s still plenty of bluesy rock ‘n’ roll in there.

And here’s the Black Keys pranking their record company:
