The Black Keys Tour Dates 2012

Since The Black Keys haven’t toured a huge amount in 2011, fans can therefore expect 2012 to be a bumper year of shows.

With shows starting in the European January winter fans should get a taste of the new album.

What’s perhaps most interesting about the announcement of these dates is that this European tour is on at the same time as The Big Day Out festival in Australia. The Black Keys had to cancel their Australian tour in 2011 which was to include playing at the Big Day Out travelling festival. It had been expected The Black Keys would have played at the festival in 2012.

No word on any Australian tour dates for 2012 yet.
