The Black Keys will return this fall with Atlanta arena concert

The Black Keys will return to Atlanta for the first time since 2014 as part of their “Let’s Rock” tour.

The 31-date arena outing will swing through State Farm Arena at 7 p.m. Nov. 9 with Modest Mouse and Shannon & The Clams opening the show.

Tickets for the concert will go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. March 22 via

Though The Black Keys have been quiet since their 2014 album, “Turn Blue,” the band’s Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney have been involved in several musical projects. Auerbach released a solo album (“Waiting on a Song”) and formed The Arcs, while Carney produced several albums, composed the theme song for Netflix’s “BoJack Horseman” and co-wrote, produced and drummed on “Hopeless Romantic,” the latest studio album from now-fiancée Michelle Branch.

Earlier this month, The Black Keys returned with the single “Lo/Hi,” their first music together in nearly five years.
