These dates mark The Black Keys’ first European tour since 2015 and follow a 32-date North American run earlier this year.

Fans can expect the duo to play hits like “Howlin’ For You”, “Lonely Boy” and “Gold On The Ceiling”, as well as performing songs from their latest album.

The LP, Dropout Boogie was released in May and harks back to the stripped-down blues rock of their early days making music together in Akron, Ohio basements over 20 years ago.

It marks their 11th album overall, and is nominated for Best Rock Album at the Grammy Awards.
