    The Black Keys continue their "Let's Rock" tour at TD Garden in Boston tonight and The Anthem in Washington, DC, on Saturday. They close out the Northeast leg of the tour with shows at the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and a return to The Anthem for a second show, all next week.

    The band’s ninth studio album, "Let's Rock," was released in June via Easy Eye Sound / Nonesuch Records. “From top to bottom, the 12-track 'Let’s Rock' holds tight to captivating instrumentation, with guitar at the center,” says the Associated Press. “The Black Keys are rock royalty and to the relief of many, they aren’t quite ready to relinquish their reign.”
