The band return to the UK in early 2004 after postponing dates due to injury...

The Black Keys have announced the dates for their rescheduled UK tour, which will now kick off at PORTSMOUTH's WEDGEWOOD ROOMS on January 18.

The band were due to play a short string of dates this month (November 17-23), but cancelled due to mental and physical exhaustion, as well as guitarist Dan Auerbach fracturing a bone in his foot."

As previously reported on NME.COM, in a statement the band apologised saying: "We feel it best to postpone our dates until we feel fit and ready to hit the road again."

They added: "We feel rundown and therefore sound rundown. If we have the next few months, we can recuperate, and prepare for a worthwhile tour in Europe."

The rescheduled dates are:
Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms (January 18)
Bristol Fleece (19)
Manchester Academy (20)
Nottingham Rescue Rooms (21)
Glasgow King Tut's Wah Wah Hut (22)
Newcastle University (23)
Leeds Cockpit (24)
London Mean Fiddler (25)
