The Black Keys Explain North American Tour Cancellation


  • Tour Cancellation Explained: The Black Keys canceled their entire North American tour to provide a more “exciting, intimate experience” for fans, in line with their recent European shows.

  • Official Statement: Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney assured fans they are “alive and well” and emphasized their desire to create memorable live experiences. They plan to offer a similar atmosphere to their UK and European shows at venues like Brixton Academy and the Zenith in Paris.
  • Refunds and Future Plans: All tickets and VIP packages for the initial tour dates will be fully refunded. The band promised that those who purchased tickets will have the first opportunity to buy tickets for the new dates, which will be announced soon.
  • Album Information: The tour was in support of their 12th album, Ohio Players, which features collaborations with Noel Gallagher and Beck. The album peaked at Number 26 on the US Billboard chart and Number 13 in the UK.
  • Album Review: NME gave Ohio Players a three-star review, noting the album focuses more on impact than depth, comparing it to their previous work, Dropout Boogie.
