Black Keys celebrate album release with sold-out LA show The Black Keys Tickets

The blues-rock duo thrill a packed house

Black Keys celebrate album release with sold-out LA show
The Black Keys celebrated the release of their new album 'Attack & Release' with a sold-out show at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles last night (April 1).

The Ohio blues-rock duo ran through several new tracks from the Danger Mouse-produced album, including 'Strange Times' and 'Things Ain't Like They Used To Be'.

The receptive crowd was filled with mostly male fans young and old, who cheered at nearly every extended guitar riff and drum solo.

"You know, we've got a new record out today and it feels good," said singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach. "We've played some new stuff, but we're gonna keep it mixed up," he said, before launching into some older material from 2006's 'Magic Potion'.

After the band ended their set the house lights came up, but fans were undeterred and continued cheering loudly until the duo returned to the stage for a three-song encore.

The Black Keys will continue their US tour in support of 'Attack & Release' with a show at San Francisco's Warfield Theatre tonight (April 2), before hitting several cities across the country.
