The Black Keys have always offered their fans a good mix of rock and blues, but with their latest record, the band has returned to its roots from their previous psychedelic albums. The year-long tour for The Black Keys in promotion of their sixth studio album Brothers and their 2011 summer tour may be over, but for those who have missed out watching The Black Keys in concert they still have the chance to watch their favourite band perform live on stage with their upcoming shows in Maryland and Georgia.
Early in 2011 with their Big Day Out Sideshows cancelled, many of their fans from Australia and New Zealand were disappointed as the band failed to perform throughout both countries. The American blues rock duo Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney announced their cancellation of the New Zealand and Australian tour which includes their appearances at the Bid Day out festivals and a part of their European tour in March 2011. Dan Auerbach apologized to their fans, explaining that the band has been drained due to their year-long tour and promotion. Along with the apology, Auerbach and Carney thanked their fans for their support of the Brothers. The Black Keys was to headline in shows in Brisban, Melbourne, Sydney, and Wellington.
In the middle of the year, the Black Keys returned to announce their Summer tour in Europe as well as in the US for some festival dates. Some of their festival stops include the Cochella, Hangout Festival, and Bonnaroo. The Black Keys in concert performed along with Cage The Elephant, Booker T. Jones, Nicole Atkins, and The Black Sea.
Not to worry though, their fans can still see The Black Keys in concert as they will be headlingin the Virgin Mobile Freefest in Columbia, Maryland at the Merriweather Post Pavillion. Big Sean, Cee Lo, Deadmau5, James Murphy, TV on the Radio, and several other big names this year will also appear at the Freefest.
Next stop for The Black Keys is Atlanta, Georgia. The Black Keys will be performing in Music Midtown 2011 in Atlanta. Since 2005, the Music Midtown returns to the Meadow at Piedmont Park. Along with the Black Keys, the Music Midtown lineup includes Coldplay, Cage The Elephant, Manchester Orchestra, Young The Giant, The Joy Formidable, Band of Skulls, The Constellations, The Postelles, and Mona.
