The Black Keys announce 2019 tour with Modest Mouse

on March 14, 2019, 9:00am

The Black Keys returned last week with “Lo/Hi”, their first new song in five years. Now, the rock duo of frontman  Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney have announced their long-awaited return to the road.

Modest Mouse will serve as special guests throughout the 31-date “Let’s Rock Tour”, with select legs also featuring support from *repeat repeat, Jessy Wilson, and Shannon & the Clams. During The Black Keys’ hiatus, Auerbach formed his Easy Eye Sound record label, which released Shannon & The Clams’ fifth studio album, Onion, in February. *repeat repeat and Jessy Wilson also have ties to Carney, who worked with both acts as a producer during the time off.

The Black Keys’ upcoming venture kicks off in September, following up a festival appearance at Las Vegas’ Life Is Beautiful with a brief leg across the Midwest with Modest Mouse and *repeat repeat. From there, the band joins with Jessy Wilson, who has been tapped for the tour’s Northeast leg in early October. After a few weeks off, the duo and Modest Mouse pick back up in November for dates in the South and West Coast, with Shannon & the Clams in tow as support.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, March 22nd via the band’s website. They’ll also be available here.
