Yes, that’s right. The Black Keys Australian tour 2012 has sold out in Melbourne, but demand for the rock n roll has been so great for their show at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl the band has decided to add a new spectacular on Thursday November 1.

Tickets are on sale from 10am today at the usual outlets. Do not miss out of this one, there will be no further Melbourne shows.

THE BLACK KEYS are the hottest rock and roll act on the planet right now!
After selling out arenas all through the USA, Canada, UK and Europe and headlining Coachella and Lollapalooza and many other festivals they are very pleased to announce their long awaited return to Australia this October.

Their latest (and seventh) album ‘El Camino’ is selling truckloads everywhere and its infectious opening track ‘Lonely Boy’ is a certified global smash hit single and they’ll be bringing all 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.

The transformation of THE BLACK KEYS from a 2 piece garage band playing small clubs to being worthy headliners of arenas and festivals could not be more just or complete and proves that the pure combination of good times, great music and grit can still turn to gold.

Rest assured, you haven’t see a show like this before.

THE BLACK KEYS have a deep love affair with Australia. They toured here first in 2003 just in time for the release of their second album, “Thickfreakness”. Since then they have toured here 5 more times, played every major city and many regional towns multiple times, as well as Bluesfest, The Falls, Groovin’ The Moo, Pyramid Rock and West Coast Blues & Roots festivals. They are loved from Darwin to Tassie, from Byron Bay to Geelong. Every true music fan has a story to tell about THE BLACK KEYS, and their October tour will be another big, big chapter.

Joining the band on all shows will be Sydney’s outstanding ROYAL HEADACHE. These zeitgeist-straddling purveyors of DIY garage soul are the most exciting musical thing happening in our country right now. Their debut self titled album of last year was highly loved and rated by all from the ‘burbs to the inner city hipsters. Get there early to experience and believe their power.

THE BLACK KEYS will play Newcastle, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne as well as a headlining appearance at Perth’s Rock It Festival.

All shows now on sale. Do not miss the rock and roll show of 2012.
