Demand to see the Black Keys live continues to soar. The duo of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney — finally a Grammy-winning, chart-impacting force after seven studio albums and a decade of shows — already have a string of October dates in Southern California as part of their first headlining arena tour.
And now they’ve added one more: Oct. 6, the group’s second night at Staples Center, following Oct. 5. Tickets for the new gig, $39.50-$59.50, go on sale Friday, July 20, at 10 a.m. Just a reminder that the Black Keys also play Oct. 2 at Santa Barbara Bowl, Oct. 4 at Valley View Casino Center in San Diego and Oct. 8 at Honda Center in Anaheim. Opening act throughout the run: Tegan and Sara.
This just in: The date of Nicki Minaj‘s Nokia Theatre show has just been moved, from Aug. 5 to Aug. 8, due to “an unavoidable scheduling conflict.” The location stays the same. All tickets for the earlier date will be honored. If necessary, refunds are available at point of purchase.
