THE BLACK KEYS Address North America Tour Cancellation And Rumors Of Low Ticket Sales

The Black Keys

THE BLACK KEYS have issued a statement following the cancellation of their North American tour, amid rumors of low ticket sales.

The North American leg of the “International Players” tour was set to begin in September. However, the duo abruptly canceled their plans last weekend without providing an explanation.

Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney issued the following statement on social media: “The band wants to assure everyone that Dan & Patrick are alive and well. Following the recent run of shows in the UK & Europe, including stops at iconic venues like Brixton Academy and the Zenith in Paris, we have decided to make some changes to the North American leg of the International Players Tour that will enable us to offer a similarly exciting, intimate experience for both fans and the band, and will be announcing a revised set of dates shortly.

“Everyone who had purchased tickets and/or VIP to the initial tour dates will be fully refunded – and when the new plans are announced, will be the first to be able to buy tickets.”

“Thank you for your understanding and apologies for the surprise change… We’re pretty sure everyone is going to be excited when you see what we have in mind though, and look forward to seeing everyone soon.”
