We've just received word that the Black Keys, on the heels of their highly enjoyable new record, El Camino (we seriously can't pry it from our playlist), are coming to the 1STBANK Center on Monday, April 30, with the Arctic Monkeys. Tickets ($55.00-$59.50, plus service fees) for the show, which is almost sure to sell out, go on sale on next Saturday, January 21, at noon.
