The Black Keys are set to take the ice at next year’s NHL Winter Classic, a marquee outdoor ice hockey game held annually at Fenway Park.
The 2023 Classic will be held on 2nd January and will feature the Boston Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins. TNT, Sportsnet, CBC, and TVA Sports will broadcast the game, and The Black Keys will perform during the first intermission.
The Black Keys are also gearing up for a massive European and UK tour beginning in June, joined by Spoon on most dates. Later in the summer, they’ll join the lineup for Mad Cool in Madrid, where they’ll perform alongside the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Liam Gallagher. Additionally, The Black Keys will make an appearance at Portugal’s NOS Alive with Arctic Monkeys, Lizzo, and more.
The band’s Dan Auerbach can also be found on his other project The Arcs’ upcoming album ‘Electrophonic Chronic’, due for release on January 27, 2023. The album will be the band’s first since 2015’s ‘Yours, Dreamily’, and will be released under Auerbach’s own Easy Eye Sound label.
