Black Keys Announce US Fall Dates

Akron, Ohio-based rock duo the Black Keys will spend most of the fall on a world tour in support of its Fat Possum album, “Thickfreakness.” The group will appear this weekend at the U.K.’s Reading and Leeds festivals, followed by 10 additional dates in the region through Sept. 5. A six-date tour of Australia will follow, wrapping Sept. 19 in Sydney.

From there, the group will take a few weeks off before beginning an 11-date U.S. tour Oct. 6 in Northampton, Mass. A one-off Dec. 6 gig in Oberlin, Ohio, is also on the itinerary, as is a New Year’s Eve bash at Cleveland’s Beachland Ballroom. A spokesperson says the group will likely not have time to record new material until early next year.
