    The Black Keys, Nominated for Three Billboard Music Awards, Are On Tour; Coachella Performance to Be Webcast Live

    The Black Keys have been nominated for three Billboard Music Awards: Top Alternative Artist and Top Rock Album and Top Alternative Album for their acclaimed 2010 Nonesuch release, Brothers. The awards will be presented in a ceremony at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on May 22, broadcast live on ABC.

    The Black Keys are back on the road, continuing their sold-out North American tour this spring and summer. Patrick Carney, Dan Auerbach, and the band are at the Mesa Amphitheatre in Mesa, Arizona, tonight for a sold-out show, with special guests Cage the Elephant opening. The limited-edition poster for tonight's show, pictured at left and available at the show, was designed by Rhys Cooper even before the release of the "Howlin' for You" video, which it echoes.

    The band plays the first of several upcoming festival headlining appearances at Coachella tomorrow night. That performance, scheduled for 8:40 PM PT on the Coachella Stage, will be webcast live on YouTube, as will those of other artists like The National, Gogol Bordello, Interpol, Mumford & Sons, Duran Duran, Bright Eyes, Cut Copy, Cold War Kids, and PJ Harvey. Tune in at youtube.com/coachella.

    SPIN considers the band a must-hear artist at Coachella this year. "A decade of toiling on the road and the studio paid off in 2010 for Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney," says SPIN, "with Brothers becoming one of the year's runaway hits and the duo collecting three Grammys. Now expanded to a four-piece for parts of their set, the boys' sound is even more festival-ready—and they proved it with standout appearances at Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza last year."

    The Los Angeles Times says: "If there's any band that has earned a fourth tour of Coachella, it's the Black Keys."

    Additional upcoming performances include headlining appearances at The Hangout Festival, Summerfest, Bonnaroo, and, as was most recently announced, Outside Lands in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. See below for all of The Black Keys currently scheduled tour dates. For more information and ticket links, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour. To pick up a copy of Brothers, head to the Nonesuch Store now.

    The band recently took fans behind the scenes of the unforgettable video for the Brothers tune "Howlin' for You." Watch the making-of video, featuring director Chris Marrs Piliero and stars Corbin Bernsen, Tricia Helfer, Shaun White, Diora Baird, Sean Patrick Flanery, Todd Bridges, Christian Serratos, and, of course, Carney and Auerbach, below, and watch the original video on YouTube:
