Two of music’s hardest-hitting bands are teaming up this spring for a massive arena tour. In support of their new album, El Camino, The Black Keys are hitting the road with UK rockers Arctic Monkeys. The trek currently spans 15 dates, kicking off in Cincinnati on March 2nd and ending in Norfolk, VA on March 23rd. Along the way, they’ll wreck havoc on places like New York’s Madison Square Garden, Boston’s TD Garden, and Chicago’s United Center.

Along with the U.S. jaunt, The Black Keys will be all over the UK and Europe in the early part of 2012. They’ll also be all over your TV over next five days, with scheduled appearances on Saturday Night Live (12/3), The Colbert Report (12/6), and Letterman (12/7). Plus, on Monday they’ll be playing a record release show at New York’s Webster Hall, which will be streamed live on MTV Hive.

Check out The Black Keys’ full schedule below, followed by the video for their single “Lonely Boy”. El Camino is out December 6th via Nonesuch. Pre-order your own copy on CD or vinyl.

The Arctic Monkeys just played Pittsburgh & The Black Keys come just about every year it seems (including a free show at the Arts Festival a few years ago). Just go to Cleveland!
