Arctic Monkeys and The Black Keys announce tour dates.

You would be hard pressed to find two bands, currently playing that I would rather see more than these two. The Arctic Monkeys and the Black Keys will be touring together in the States, not long after both bands have produced new albums. The Arctic Monkey's "Suck It And See" was released last summer and personally it has been growing on me ever since. More recently the Black Keys released "El Camino," which has been gathering plaudits left and right. Personally it's my least favorite of their albums, preferring the more bare-boned, garage rock that their earlier albums boast. Anyway this will not deter me from attending one of these  mammoth occasions. One disappointing element is it seems that in the all  concert locations listed below, the venues tend to be arenas....booo. I'm from the Bay Area of California and the fact they are playing in the Oracle Arena disappoints me.

Here are the dates and locations:


Arctic Monkeys are pleased to announce a 2nd North American run of dates with The Black Keys in 2012.
