The Black Keys plan Connecticut tour stop this summer

The Black Keys have logged thousands of miles since the start of the spring, touring across South America before returning stateside for a string of concert dates.

Though they won’t be spending too much time in the Northeast this summer, the Nashville duo will stop off at Hartford’s Comcast Theatre for a performance on Tuesday, July 9.

Tickets for the show go on sale Thursday, May 23 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster or the band’s website.

The Black Keys will be joined by The Flaming Lips for several concerts this summer. Whether or not the groups will team up for the Hartford show remains to be seen, though, given that the Lips’ previously scheduled July 15 show in Simsbury was canceled recently, it looks like their scheduled has just opened up.

UPDATE: The Flaming Lips will play a double bill with Spiritualized at the Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford on Monday, July 15. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, May 22 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster, Manic Productions or by phone at 800-745-3000.

The Welsh alternative rock trio The Joy Formidable are slated to open for The Black Keys in Hartford.

The Black Keys are currently working on the follow up to their Grammy Award-winning seventh studio album, “El Camino.”
