Forming a Band

The Black Keys were formed in 2001 in Akron, Ohio, during a time in which LeBron James was dominating high school basketball courts as a member of a local high school team. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney combined to create one of the most powerful and prolific duos in the last two decades. Duos are increasingly rare in an era where many musicians either go solo, or groups are launched with anywhere between four and 20 members. See: Bang Camaro.

Auerbach and Carney released TBK’s initial studio album back in 2002, and it did not register on any Billboard chart throughout the world. The following release in 2003 didn’t fare any better, and a release in 2004 was met with a response that didn’t move any needles or Richter scales. This would be enough for many bands to hang up the guitar and microphone and become 9-to-5ers who forever tell stories about once being in a band. But they were so confident in their talents, they plodded forward and continued to produce what would become amazing, popular and eventually highly-profitable music.

Rise to Fame

Once The Black Keys got on with labels and promoters who could put their studio releases into  action, the numbers began to roll in. Attack & Release was released on April Fool’s Day in 2008, and it garnered Top-15 status on the American Billboard Charts, as well as the Australian charts. This paved the way for 2010’s Brothers, which sold as high as #3 on the American charts. El Camino came the following year, and it registered at #2 on the American Billboard Charts and the New Zealand Billboard Charts, and got as high as #3 in Australia, Belgium and Canada.

Turn Blue was released in early-May of 2014, and it became a #1 smash-hit in the United States, Australia and Canada. It has gone Golden the United States and the United Kingdom since, and has achieved Platinum status in Canada. Indeed, The Black Keys have developed a sound that has resonated with fans North of the border.  

Modest Mouse

Modest Mouse came about in the early-1990s in the state of Washington, during a time in which Nirvana was beginning to gain national recognition. They released their first studio album in 1986, and a follow-up in 1997. A third studio album came in 2000. Come 2007, the studio release entitled We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank got the attention of the music world, vaulting to #1 on the US Billboard Charts.

When the two bands combine their forces, it will be a night full of chart-topping hits unleashed in full color by two groups that have only experienced their true level of greatness in the last decade or so. Any tour that begins in Las Vegas gets off on the right foot. The Black Keys and Modest Mouse will rock the amazing Music & Art Festival entitled Life Is Beautiful on September 21 before switching into full tour mode and performing inside of gigantic sporting entertainment venues throughout North America.

Let’s Rock TOur

The Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado will be visited on September 23, followed by performances in Kansas City at the Sprint Center and St. Louis at the Enterprise Center. The United Center in Chicago will be visited on September 27 before the Target Center hosts the fifth consecutive Center-based performance in Minneapolis on September 28.

The massive tour will touch down in the biggest cities and biggest venues while gently weaving through the Midwest, Mid-America and back up into the East Coast.
