The Black Keys Extend World Tour, Celebrate 10 Years of The Big Come Up

The Black Keys have extended the world tour in support of their new studio album El Camino. The duo, who served as guest editors of Relix ’s January/February issue, will now tour the West Coast in October, including a stop at LA’s Staples Center. The Black Keys are also teaming up with Tickets-for-Charity to offer fans access to some of the best seats in the house. Proceeds will benefit Community Support Services in Akron, OH and W.O. Smith Music School in Nashville, TN. Additionally, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the band’s first album The Big Come Up, iTunes will make the record available for $5.99 for one week. Arctic Monkeys, The Shins, Tame Impala and Tegan and Sara will split opening duties for the arena-size blues-rock group over the next few months.
