The Black Keys Announce First Headlining Arena Tour
Blues-rockers the Black Keys are moving on up, announcing their very first headlining arena tour today.
The duo will headline the 15-city North American arena tour alongside opening act Arctic Monkeys. The tour kicks off on March 2 in their homestate of Ohio -- where they'll play three different cities, a fifth of the tour -- and closes on March 23 in Norfolk, Va. The full list of dates is below.
The Keys, who'll release seventh album "El Camino" this Tuesday (Dec. 6), are also gearing up for a series of TV appearances. The duo will return to "Saturday Night Live" tomorrow (Dec. 3), less than a year after their "SNL" debut.
