The Black Keys will return to the road this summer in continued promotion behind the rock duo’s latest studio album, 2019’s Let’s Rock, which arrived this past June on Easy Eye Sound/Nonesuch Records.
Announced on Monday, the band’s 2020 summer run of shows begins in early July and will feature support at select dates from Gary Clark Jr., The Marcus King Band, Jessy Wilson, and Yola.
The tour kicks off with a performance at the White River Amphitheater in Seattle, WA on July 7th. From there, the North American run of summer shows gradually makes its way east throughout July, August, and into September. The 35-date tour will come to a close following a show at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, FL on September 6th.
The mostly-U.S. summer run will follow a previously-announced Canadian tour in the spring which begins on May 5th and runs until May 19th. The band’s spring tour schedule also includes a planned appearance at the Shaky Knees Music Festival in Atlanta, GA during the weekend of May 1st-3rd.
The Black Keys spent much of last fall on tour with Modest Mouse and Shannon And The Clams to support Let’s Rock. More recently, Dan Auerbach has spent time working and playing beside Marcus King on the young guitarist’s debut solo effort, 2020’s El Dorado, which he helped produce.
Members of the band’s fan club will have early access to tickets when the pre-sale begins Tuesday (2/25) at 10 a.m. local. General on-sale will follow beginning this Friday (2/28) at 10 a.m. local, via the band’s website.
