The Black Keys will embark on the first leg of their U.S. tour this March with a show in the TD Garden, featuring special guests Arctic Monkeys opening. The shows are in support of The Black Keys' new album, El Camino, due out December 6 on Nonesuch Records.
El Camino follows the most successful two years in The Black Keys' career. In May 2010 they released their breakthrough album, Brothers. Debuting at #2 in the U.S., it went on to win three Grammy Awards and an MTV Video Music Award, and topped numerous year-end lists, including iTunes, NPR, and Rolling Stone. Brothers, which included the hit singles "Tighten Up" and "Howlin' for You," has been certified Gold in the U.S. and U.K., and Platinum in Canada. Worldwide sales are now over one million and counting.
