The Black Keys share statement on canceled Arena Tour, shows will be rescheduled in more intimate venues

The Black Keys recently canceled their entire North American tour in support of their latest album Ohio players, which was released back in April. Most speculated that the cancellation was due to low ticket sales, and while they didn’t come out and say much, the band announced in a statement today that they would be rebooking the tour in more intimate venues.

“The band wants to assure everyone that Dan and Patrick are alive and well,” the Black Keys posted on their social media account. “Following a recent string of shows in the UK and Europe, including stops at iconic venues such as Brixton Academy and Zenith in Paris, we have decided to make some changes to the North American leg of the Players International Tour that will enable us to deliver an equally exciting and intimate experience for both fans and the band, A revised set of dates will be announced soon.

The statement continues:

Everyone who purchased tickets and/or VIP tickets on the initial tour dates will receive a full refund – and when new plans are announced, they will be the first to be able to purchase tickets.

Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for the sudden change… We are sure everyone will be excited when you see what we have in mind, and we look forward to seeing everyone soon.

The Black Keys’ North American tour was previously scheduled to begin in September and continue through November.
