With El Camino out next week via Nonesuch, The Black Keys have announced a big time tour with another big time band. The Keys will make the jump to arena rockers on this upcoming trek, and they have a suitable tourmate in the Arctic Monkeys.

Sticking mostly to the Northeast, The Black Keys will visit Madison Square Garden, the United Center, the Garden, and multiple other basketball and hockey facilities as they extensively service the area. A few surprising locations include Columbus, Ohio, Portland, Maine, and Norfolk, Virginia. Now west coast stops have been announced yet, but you know we will let you know as soon as they are.
