The Black Keys Announce North American Tour

The Black Keys announced a U.S. and Canadian tour today for 2012. Surprisingly enough, most of the band’s dates will be in arenas, and that includes Madison Square Garden, Pitchfork reports. Arctic Monkeys will be opening for the band on these tour dates.

This comes after a European tour for the band in January and a Saturday Night Live appearance slated for tomorrow night. As previously reported, the band is still set to stream their New York show at Webster Hall on Dec. 5. The band will be on The Colbert Report on Dec. 6 and David Letterman’s show on Dec. 7.

The band has five songs from their new album available here.
