The Black Keys Australian tour 2012 has been announced that will see the two-piece garage band perform a string of shows across Australia in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Newcastle.

Fresh from selling out arenas all through the USA, Canada, UK and Europe and headlining Coachella and Lollapalooza and many other festivals, the duo will be bringing the sounds of their latest album, El Camino, for the first time to our shores.

The album, El Camino, is now platinum in Australia, reaching #2 on the ARIA album chart. Its infectious opening track Lonely Boy is a certified global smash hit single, achieving double platinum sales in Australia, reaching #2 on the ARIA single chart and #2 on the triple j hottest 100.

Rolling Stone calls new single Gold on the Ceiling’s keyboards “a serrated organ growl backed up with a SWAT team of hand claps” and cited it as an example of Danger Mouse’s prowess as a producer and co-writer. Rest assured, The Black Keys will be bringing all of these tracks and more to Australian audiences with their electrifying new live show.

The show features huge visuals from 20 projectors, giant mirror balls, and all the hits from their deep and consistently awesome back catalogue.
