The Black Keys Cancel Tour, Promise New Dates At Intimate Venues


The Black Keys have canceled all the upcoming dates on their tour in support of their new album, Ohio Players. Rumors circulated that they canceled their shows because of poor ticket sales, due to high ticket prices and poor album sales. The Black Keys released a statement addressing the news on Sunday: “The band wants to assure everyone that Dan & Patrick are alive and well. We have decided to make some changes to the North American leg of the ‘International Players Tour’ that will enable us to offer [an] intimate experience for both fans and the band, and will be announcing a revised set of dates shortly. We’re pretty sure everyone is going to be excited when you see what we have in mind, and look forward to seeing everyone soon.” The only show currently scheduled for the band is the NASCAR Chicago Street Race on July 6.
