The Black Keys today announced a 2024 North American headline tour—International Players Tour—in support of their new album, Ohio Players, out on April 5. The 31-date run, produced by Live Nation, includes a stop at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, WI, on November 9, 2024. The Head and The Heart will be joining the show as direct support.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning on Tuesday, April 2 at 10 am through Thursday, April 4 at 10 pm. Additional presales will run throughout the week ahead of the general on sale beginning on Friday, April 5 at 10 am. Please visit livenation.com and theblackkeys.com for all details.

The tour announcement follows two stand-out performances by The Black Keys at SXSW earlier this month, where they also debuted their new documentary This is a Film About The Black Keys to rave reviews. Ahead of this leg of the tour, The Black Keys will head to Europe to debut their brand-new live show. Tickets for the UK and Europe shows are on-sale now.

Ohio Players is set to be an album unlike any of the band’s others, featuring collaborations with friends and colleagues, including Beck, Noel Gallagher, Dan the Automator, Greg Kurstin, Juicy J, Lil Noid, and others. Listeners have gotten a taste of what to expect from the new project with the lead single, “Beautiful People (Stay High),” that recently reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Airplay chart and AAA Airplay charts, and additional offerings “This Is Nowhere” and “I Forgot to Be Your Lover.” Based on these releases, Stereogum comments, “The Black Keys are entering another pop crossover phase.” In its four-star review, Mojo said, “This is the most streamlined and tunes-packed Black Keys album since El Camino. The sound of a band rejuvenated.” Pre-order Ohio Players here.
