In support of their new album, "Turn Blue" (out Tuesday), The Black Keys will embark on a worldwide tour that will last almost to Christmas, and Baltimore is on the itinerary. The Grammy-winning Ohio rock act will headline Baltimore Arena on Dec. 4. Singer-songwriter St. Vincent will open the show. (Watch the silly tour announcement video above; extra points for clowning on the drummer, Patrick Carney -- a rock 'n' roll joke that still has legs.)
Tickets go on sale May 16 at 10 a.m. For a quick preview, watch "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, as The Black Keys are the scheduled musical guest.
And for those in need of a Black Keys fix before the winter, the band will play Washington's Verizon Center on Sept. 25 with Cage the Elephant. Tickets for that show go on sale next Friday morning as well.
