The Black Keys formed in Akron back in 2001.

“The Black Keys have been called ‘rock royalty’ by the Associated Press and ‘one of the best rock ‘n’ roll bands on the planet’ by Uncut,” according to a press release from LiveNation. “Cutting their teeth playing small clubs, the band has gone on to sell out arena tours and have released nine previous studio albums.”

The Dropout Boogie Tour, which was announced Monday morning, also features a concert in Cincinnati on Sept. 3. Band of Horses are joining the tour as special guests.

Last year, The Black Keys received their 14th Grammy nomination for Delta Dream, which was released in May 2021.
