    Just when I thought I'd decided on my 'Albums Of The Year' list, along comes a late contender! I seriously can't believe how consistently awesome The Black Keys are, this album is fantastic!

    The United Center (Chicago) is denoted this way. I thought it might mean the venue is more "subject to change" than usual... :lol:

    Last year, they played the Aragon for 3 nights. The UC would have a completely different feel, obviously.

    I've heard really good things about Arctic Monkeys, so for me, the pairing should make it worth the money. Tickets look a bit steep.

    The ** indicate a different sale time for the presale.

    Man, I know The Black Keys are more popular these days, but I am surprised they have been booked to play such big venues. Even with The Arctic Monkey's opening I think it will be hard for them to sell some out.

    All for the CCCC show in Portland though. GA...sweet!

    This tour may have gotten started back in Aug. at the Outside Lands Festival. I was at the Sat. show and the Arctic Monkeys went on right before the Black Keys. :D

    I don't think the shows will sell out either. I think they can rock the shit out of them though. The outside Lands festival had supposedly 75,000 people to see the Black Keys. I know festivals are not the same as venues ;) Still looking forward to this as i'm sure it will kick ass :mrgreen:

    If there's one bad thing to say, it's that the artwork is a bit crap. No lyrics, just photos of old Chrysler Town and Countries. That said, it's only a very small complaint - the album is genius! :D

    I was gonna try to go to this show seeing as

    A) there new album is probably the most consistently good rock album ive heard from track to track in a long time.

    B) its free and nearby

    C) its on my birthday.


    but in order to have gotten the free tix, you had to go to the city. So i wasnt gonna risk paying a $12 toll to get one of 400 tix when I know how incredibly packed it would be for people doing the same. Then even if I did get free tix, I would have to go back home for class, then drive back and pay another $12 toll. (IM broke) free becomes $24

    I really wish there was a way to get em online.
