The Black Keys have confirmed several additional North American tour dates, including shows in Ottawa, Oakland, Sacramento, and Los Angeles as well as additional nights in Brooklyn and Chicago. Special guests during the extensive tour include Cage The Elephant, Jake Bugg, and St. Vincent. Promoted exclusively by Live Nation, the tour begins September 5 at Columbus, Ohio’s Schottenstein Center and runs through December, with dates at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre, Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, among others. (The Barclays Center dates are part of a celebration of their worldwide label’s 50th anniversary at Brooklyn Academy of Music, Nonesuch Records at BAM: Celebrating a Label Without Labels.) See below for complete tour details. For the newly announced dates, pre-sale begins Tuesday, June 3, at 10 AM local time; general on sale starts Friday, June 6, at 10 AM local.

The tour celebrates the duo’s highly acclaimed new album, Turn Blue, which recently debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. This is the highest chart debut yet for the band, whose previous album, El Camino, debuted at #2 in 2011. It is also the first #1 album for Nonesuch. Turn Blue is also the band’s highest charting album to date internationally, as well, debuting at #1 in Canada and Australia; #2 in the UK, New Zealand, and Croatia; #3 in Ireland; #4 in France and Switzerland; and #5 in Austria and Holland. The album also charted in the top ten in Germany, Belgium, Finland and Portugal. Turn Blue has already been certified Gold in Canada.

Produced by Danger Mouse, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, Turn Blue comprises 11 new tracks, including the first single, “Fever,” which remains at #1 on Alternative radio for the fourth straight week and #1 on AAA radio for the eighth straight week. Additionally, the album has received critical praise, with NPR Music calling it "expansive and irresistibly catchy," and USA Today saying it is "an engrossing collection that takes daring leaps while embracing the primal energy and minimalism of the duo’s early records."
