The Black Keys announced a nationwide tour in support of their forthcoming album, Turn Blue, and they will stop by Phoenix on November 10 to play the US Airways Center.
No word yet on ticket price, but if you pre-order the album through the Black Keys' website you can get first shot at tickets starting Tuesday, May 13, at 10 a.m. The general public can get tickets starting Friday, May 16, at 10 a.m.
Turn Blue comes out on May 13. The band's first albums were gritty, straightforward blues albums, with just drummer Patrick Carney and guitar player Dan Auerbach providing most of the instrumentation. But as the years passed, the band's songwriting matured and changed, and starting with 2010's Brothers, the band ditched the duo format and started writing songs for a full band. 2011's El Camino took another step away from the band's grittier blues-rock roots, and the first two songs released from Turn Blue are any indication, the band is looking towards a sound that's more Broken Bells than White Stripes.
Danger Mouse, along with Carney and Auerbach, produced the album.
