The Black Keys have announced initial details of the European leg of their ‘Dropout Boogie’ Tour in the summer of 2023, including UK arena dates.

Singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney will play headline dates at London’s The O2 on Wednesday, 21 June and Manchester’s AO Arena on Thursday 22 June before the last stop in Glasgow on Saturday 24 June at the OVO Hydro.  Spoon have been confirmed as the main support act across the tour.

The Black Keys will be holding an exclusive fan club presale starting Tuesday 13 December at 9 am GMT. Sign up for the free Lonely Boys & Girls Club and receive early access to tickets. Fan club presale ends Thursday 15 December at 11:59 pm GMT.

“After 8 long years, we are excited to say The Black Keys are coming back to Europe and the UK. We can’t wait to see you at the shows in these iconic venues” the duo said in a statement.

These dates mark The Black Keys’ first European tour since 2015 and offer fans a rare opportunity to see the band at their finest.  Following an acclaimed, 32-date North American run earlier this year, the duo will deliver a loud and raw set featuring hits like Howlin’ For You, Lonely Boy and Gold On The Ceiling, as well as performing songs from their latest album, Dropout Boogie, which was released in May and harks back to the stripped-down blues rock of their early days making music together in Akron, Ohio basements over 20 years ago.

The Black Keys play the following shows in their UK ‘Dropout Boogie’ Tour of 2023:

The O2, London – Wednesday 21 June
AO Arena, Manchester – Thursday 22 June
OVO Hydro – Glasgow Saturday 24 June.
