I must say I have been pretty jealous reading reviews about Dan Auerbach’s recent live shows. It’s not long now, however, until I get to see Dan in concert. I recently received my ticket in the mail.

I’m yet to see a poor review of the live show. If you haven’t got a ticket yet then make a move, it doesn’t look like he’ll be doing too many more shows than what are already announced.

Unanimously people have commented on:

– how at ease Dan is with his playing and other band members

– how genuinely happy he looks

– how so much more powerful and full the sound is with the live band compared to the record.

– the songs have taken on a life of their own.

This is awesome. Live in studio performance for Jason Bentleys’ Morning Becomes Eclectic radio show

Here’s some links to some recent live show reviews. I’ll, of course, be adding to the mix when I get to see him in April:

–  Gustavus review of the First Avenue show

Sound Citizen review of the Chicago show

Grimy Goods review of the Bowery Ballroom show

Broken Headphones review of the Beachland Ballroom show

Watching fans reactions pretty much real time on twitter, its clear the new songs are bringing something special for the females in the crowd. These two from one fan really caught my eye.

Enough said:

The story The Black keys Fan Lounge told 28/1/09 below:

It hasn’t received much press here, and hasn’t been officially acknowledged elsewhere that I can find, but it seems Dan Auerbach will be making some solo appearances in Australia much sooner than expected to support his new solo album ‘Keep It Hid’.

I was casually reading the Melbourne street press today and there was an ad for the Boogie festival held over the April 10,11 and 12 (Easter) weekend, 2009, near Melbourne. To my surprise it noted on the bill: “Dan Auerbach from Black Keys (USA)”.

Looks like a pretty cool boutique style festival and line up. Eddy Current Suppression Ring is headlining and we reported here in June 2008 that The Black Keys had name checked them in an interview so perhaps Dan wanted to be playing at the festival with them.

No doubt this date and others will be up on Dan’s MySpace soon. Concert promoters here have obviously got a jump on the offical word in an effort advertise their festival. Dan will probably be playing a stand alone show in Melbourne , Sydney and Brisbane around this date. Hacienda will be backing Dan in Australia like will be in the USA before this tour and appearing seperately it seems.

I suggest Dan will also be appearing at the East Coast Blues and Roots Festival, Byron Bay, which is held over the same weekend. It makes obvious sense if he is around for the Melbourne gig and only the first round of acts have been announced for this festival so far. The Black Keys have, of course, played the Blues and Roots festival before. It really will be stellar line up at one of the worlds premier Blues and Roots festivals.

Looks like I’m going to have to change my holiday plans around this unexpected and welcome visit. Wicked. Stay tuned for further tour dates in Australia as they are announced…

I’m thinking in 2008 The Black Keys did more shows than in any other year.  Pat from The Black Keys told me in an interview I did with him for this website he reckons it was at least 75 shows.

This year I thought I’d keep this page updated with all 2009 tour dates so as to do a count up at years end.

No doubt 2009 will be much less than 2008 since there’s not an album to support immediately and there are Dan’s solo shows to accommodate.

Byron Entertainment Centre – Byron Bay, NSW, Australia

The Black Keys have announced their 2009 Australian tour dates. You can buy Black Keys concert tickets from Love Police for all shows (Sydney, Byron Bay, Newcastle, Brisbane and regional areas) except for Melbourne. Melbourne concert tickets can be bought from Ticketmaster. Great to see them back so soon in Australia on tour following their June 2008 tour in support of the Attack and Release album.

The Palais Theatre in Melbourne is where I’ll be on January 11! Great venue. And guess who’s supporting? None other than Gomez and Dr Dog. Perfect.

The New Years Eve show at the Pyramid Rock Festival at Phillip Island, Victoria, (near Melbourne) has already sold out.
