The Black Keys Australian Tour October 2012

Written by Brayden Darke on April 17, 2012

Blues rock duo The Black Keys will be touring Australia this October after months of rumours and anticipation. There have been glimpses of them possibly returning to our shores after they pulled out of the 2011 Big Day Out lineup, and then postponed another unannounced Australian tour, to ensure they could deal with the success of their most recent release El Camino.

The band recently blew the roof off the main stage at this year’s Coachella Festival, but it seems that the band will only be playing a solo tour this year, rather than joining our festivals, such as the 2013 Big Day Out lineup, or Splendour in the Grass as was previously rumoured.

There will be six dates throughout October, covering Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Newcastle. Tickets will go on sale today at 12pm AEST.
