Black Keys Cancel Big Day Out Performance

Sadly, The Black Keys will be unable to perform at this year's Big Day Out, with Paul Dempsey added in their place.


This statement was released today:


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.”


Big Day Out begins this month and finishes February. All shows except Perth and Adelaide are sold out. Head to bigdayout.com for last minute tickets.
