This came across my desk today, that the Black Keys will perform a special warm up show for their Australian tour at the Great Northern Hotel in Byron Bay on June 16, 2008. Tickets available from the venue from this Monday. This show is in addition to all the other shows already announced on the Australian tour. Gotta be close to one of the best venues to see them at. Of course the Keys have performed at the Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival many times and as the news said “it is a little known fact that the Keys have an extra terrestrial association with the Northern Rivers region of Australia”. I’m not sure what that means but I do know it will be an awesome gig.
