    The Black Keys North American Tour Tickets On Sale Now
    Danny Clinch

    As announced last week, The Black Keys will embark on the first leg of their North American tour this March, with shows in arenas like New York’s Madison Square Garden, Boston’s TD Garden, and Chicago’s United Center, with special guests Arctic Monkeys opening all along the way. The shows are in support of their new album, El Camino, out now on Nonesuch Records. Tickets for most shows, which went on presale to fans on the band's mailing list earlier this week, go on sale to the general public starting today and tomorrow. For details and ticket links, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Over in the UK, where the band tours in February, a new review in from the Daily Mail gives the album a perfect five out of five stars. “El Camino is a tour de force that should seal their entry into the big league,” raves the review. “Big riffs and even bigger hooks recall everyone from David Bowie to The White Stripes. Play loud!” The Daily Mirror says the duo has “hit the motherlode” on the new album. “A natural affinity for hook-filled treasure—think T Rex, vintage Motown and Led Zep—combined with Danger Mouse’s ingenious production ensure a roof-raising, spirit-lifting triumph.”

    To pick up a copy of El Camino, head to iTunes, Amazon, The Black Keys store, and the Nonesuch Store, where CDs and LPs are now 34% off and include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album at checkout.

    "Lonely Boy," the first single off of El Camino, is featured in VH1's Winter Music promo, showcasing some of the station's other A-list artists set to a soundtrack from the Black Keys. Check it out here:
