Grammy award-winning Black Keys to play Leeds arena concert
12:41pm Tuesday 15th July 2014 in Local news
DAN Auerbach and Patrick Carney, otherwise known as The Black Keys, will be bringing their blend of blues and garage rock to the first direct arena next March as part their Turn Blue world tour.
Tickets for the Thursday March 5, 2015 show go on sale from 9am tomorrow, Friday, priced from £27.50.
The tour celebrates the duo’s highly acclaimed new album, Turn Blue, which recently debuted at number one in the US and at number two in the UK album charts. Described by Rolling Stone as ‘The best, most consistently gripping album the Keys have ever made’, Turn Blue is the highest chart debut yet for the band.
Turn Blue, the bands eighth full length album, follows the success of the commercially and critically acclaimed El Camino in 2011 and Brothers in 2010, which collectively resulted in 6 Grammy Awards including Best Rock Song for Lonely Boy and Best Rock Performance.
Aside from the success of their albums, the band are renowned for their electric live performances. Their performance at Glastonbury this year was described by NME as ‘a rampant raucous performance’ and ‘simply, yet dazzling’ by The Guardian. Don’t miss out on your chance to listen to the hits – such as Howling For You, Lonely Boy, Gold On The Ceiling and Fever – that have made The Black Keys one of the biggest and most influential rock bands of the moment.
