Through the aid of a slightly bizarre video (surprise!), The Black Keys announced the North American leg of their world tour to promote their new album, Turn Blue.Containing 42-dates, the arena tour kicks off September 5th in Columbus, Ohio and will include special guests Cage The Elephant, Jake Bugg and St. Vincent, with each guest act performing a different block of shows on the tour. Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, May 16th at 10 AM. For more information on the tour and the special guest schedule, head over to TheBlackKeys.com.The tour announcement comes just days before the duo are set to perform on the May 10th episode of Saturday Night Live, which if the promos below are any indication, won’t be awkward at all.
