The Black Keys, who are currently riding a wave of adulation in the wake of this month's brand new release El Camino, are set to hit Houston on April 24. This Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion date will be the group's second at the venue, the first being an opening slot for the Kings Of Leon back in September 2010.
The group has been extremely busy this past month, logging appearances on The Late Show With David Letterman, Saturday Night Live, and The Colbert Report. The band also recieved a Grammy nom for "Best Pop Duo/Group Performance" for their version of "Dearest" from the Rave On Buddy Holly tribute set this past summer.
In even cooler news, the Arctic Monkeys will be opening for the Ohio duo on the Houston stop. The Monkey's latest, Suck It And See, was one of our favorite albums of 2010, and their set at the House Of Blues in August was quality as hell.
Tickets for the April 24 date go on sale this Friday, December 16, through Live Nation. More than likely this will sell out, so get your game face on for Friday morning.
