The Black Keys have announced a thirty-five-date "Let's Rock" summer tour with performances in cities including Seattle, Dallas, Boston, New York, Tampa, and Jacksonville. Each date on the tour will feature direct support by Gary Clark Jr., with the exception of the July 10 concert in Berkeley, which will feature support from Allah-Las. Jessy Wilson and The Marcus King Band will each open select dates on the first half of the tour, and Yola will open for the twenty-concert second leg, performing from her debut album, Walk Through Fire, starting in Cleveland on August 11. Tickets for all dates will go on sale on Friday, February 28. See below for details and tickets, or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

The Black Keys' ninth studio album, "Let's Rock," was released on June 28 via Easy Eye Sound/Nonesuch Records and is available on all format here.

"When we're together, we are The Black Keys," Dan Auerbach says. "That's where that real magic is and always has been since we were sixteen." "Let's Rock" was released to critical praise, with Paste saying, "If you want something you can crank up at backyard barbecues or in the car with the windows down, well, The Black Keys have two words for you, and they're in the album title." The Wall Street Journal adds, "The Black Keys have mastered the form of guitar-based music, and the craft at work on these dozen songs is something to behold."
