Black Keys cancel Australasian dates due to fatigue

To the dismay of many, the Ohio duo of The Black Keys have unfortunately withdrawn from their Australia and New Zealand tour dates in January, which had included a show at Australia’s Big Day Out Festival. Citing exhaustion as the cause for the cancellation, it only seems reasonable, as the band have been touring non-stop on the back of Brothers. The boys return to the States in March for a quick stint in Las Vegas before embarking on a set of European dates, which appear to have remained in tact.

PR below:

“The Black Keys are sorry to announce the cancellation of the New Zealand and Australian tour including all appearances at the Big Day Out touring festival as well as a portion of the European tour in March. An arduous year of touring and promotion has drained the band and necessitated time off.

Dan and Patrick wish to thank all of you who have shown such incredible support since the release of ‘Brothers’ and have helped make the album a success.”
