blackkeys22The Black Keys are back! The indie-rock dynamic duo of singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney from Akron, Ohio, will headline Jones Beach Theater on Fri, July 22, 2022 - tix: http://BLACKKEYS.jonesbeach.com

This Long Island show is part of a summer Dropout Boogie tour in support of the grammy-winning band’s latest album, “Let’s Rock.” Band of Horses and Ceramic Animal are support.. It’s safe to expect that The Black Keys will perform some of their Billboard hits as well as material from last year’s album Let’s Rock, their first album in five years. “When we’re together we are The Black Keys, that’s where that real magic is, and always has been since we were sixteen,” The Black Keys singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach said.

Band of Horses: Set to release their first new album “Things Are Great” in five years, this indie group with Southern rock influences is known for their slow build anthem “The Funeral.”

Ceramic Animal: The Black Keys’ frontman Dan Auerbach produced this tight, trippy group’s upcoming record “Sweet Unknown.” Check out the kaleidoscopic “Dreams Via Memories” to get a feel for their sound.

The Black Keys are singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney. Last year, the duo received its 14th Grammy nomination, this time for Best Contemporary Blues Album for Delta Kream, which was released in May 2021 by Nonesuch Records. The project, which features 11 Mississippi hill country blues songs by artists such as R.L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough, was the band’s fifth consecutive top 10 debut on The Billboard 200. Pitchfork said of the album, “By spending the time playing the blues that’s buried deep in their soul, the Black Keys reveal how far they’ve gone in a space of 20 years,” while the UK’s Independent said, “The blues flow through The Black Keys’ music as steady as the Mississippi River. Now they’re going right to the source on Delta Kream, a sweltering collection of some of their favourite hill country blues standards. The fact they’re exploring such familiar territory is to the album’s benefit. The Black Keys know this music as well as their own. Delta Kream celebrates true musicianship. A soundtrack for those hot and heady nights of late summer. It’s brilliant.” Delta Kream also made Best of 2021 lists from several publications, including both Uncut and Mojo.

Most recently, The Black Keys released the Super Deluxe 10th anniversary edition of their landmark seventh studio album, El Camino in late 2021. El Camino was produced by Danger Mouse and The Black Keys and was recorded in the band’s then-new hometown of Nashville during the spring of 2011. The Black Keys won three awards at the 55th annual Grammys for El Camino—Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Album—among other worldwide accolades.

Formed in Akron, Ohio 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. Cutting their teeth playing small clubs, the band have gone on to sell out arena tours and have released nine previous studio albums: their debut The Big Come Up (2002), followed by Thickfreakness (2003) and Rubber Factory (2004), along with their releases on Nonesuch Records, Magic Potion (2006), Attack & Release (2008), Brothers (2010), El Camino (2011), Turn Blue (2014) and “Let’s Rock” (2019), plus a 10th anniversary edition of Brothers (2020).The band has won six Grammy Awards and a BRIT and headlined festivals in North America, South America, Mexico, Australia, and Europe.
