Black Keys Coming to Quicken Loans Arena in September


Originally from Akron but now based out of Nashville, the Black Keys are the little band that could. The group, which played its first show years ago in the tiny Beachland Tavern, is now one of the biggest rock acts in the world. The group performs on Saturday Night Live this weekend and its new album, Turn Blue, comes out on Tuesday. The band has said the album title may or may not be a reference to Cleveland late night TV host Ghoulardi. A U.S. tour launches in September and the group performs at Quicken Loans Arena on September 6. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 16.
