Black Keys Announce 2020 North American Summer Tour

Duo's Let's Rock tour will hit 35 cities this summer

The Black Keys have announced they’ll hit the road again this summer with 35 dates on their Let’s Rock tour.

The blues rockers’ tour will kick off on July 7 in Seattle, hitting up cities like Salt Lake City, Dallas, St. Louis, Chicago, and Boston along the way, before wrapping up on Sept. 6 in Jacksonville, Fla.

Joining Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney this time around is Gary Clark Jr., who will join the band on the entirety of the tour except for the show in Berkeley, California, on July 10, which will instead feature Allah-Las. Jessy Wilson, The Marcus King Band, and Yola will be joining the tour on select dates.

Tickets for the summer tour will go on sale on Friday, Feb. 28, at 10 a.m. local time via The Black Keys’ official site.

The Black Keys previously toured in 2019 with special guest Modest Mouse. Before last year’s arena tour kicked off, Auerbach and Carney performed an intimate show at Los Angeles’ historic Wiltern Theatre that was marred by issues with third-party ticket vendors.
