It’s recently been announced that The Black Keys will head back to Australia in 2008 to headline the New Years Eve Pyramid Rock Festival that is held over 2 days from 30 December 2008 to January 1 2009 at Phillip Island (near Melbourne), Australia.
This is great news for Australian fans of the band who recently saw them on their June tour this year. This is the second year in a row the band have played the festival, so they obviously think it’s an alright kind of a place to spend their New Year.
There’s a great line up of bands scheduled for the festival. Methinks the organisers might have been reading my Black Keys dream post earlier this year when planning their bands for the festival (probably not, but hey I’m allowed to dream!). I wrote that my ultimate gig would be The Black Keys supported by Fat Freddys Drop, maybe even doing a duet. The festival organisers have gone one step further, however, and included Salmonella Dub and The Black Seeds on the bill as well! They are all such complimentary bands although different genres.
Ahh, so much to look forward to when you’ve got a wandering mind!
