Black Keys at Central Park in 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Black Keys

The Super Bowl weekend concerts in NYC keep coming. After already announcing Red Hot Chili Peppers at Barclays Center, Foo FIghters on the Bud Light Hotel cruise, The Roots on that same cruise, and others, three more concerts, billed as The Evenings With Legends, were announced today.

The first of those happens with John Legend at McKittrick Hotel on January 29, the intimate venue which is home to Sleep No More, and where the just-announced Les Claypool show is also happening.

The next night, Band of Horses play McKittrick Hotel (1/30), which is a one-off ahead of their upcoming acoustic tour which hits NYC for a sold-out show on 2/28 at Town Hall.

And lastly, the Black Keys will headline the soon-to-close Roseland Ballroom on January 31. No ticket links for any of these shows yet.

In other recent Black Keys news, "Bob Dylan's Hair" wasn't actually Bob Dylan's hair, and Patrick Carney is co-producing the new Black Lips album.

The 2nd sentence of this article is so poorly constructed that it actually causes physical pain when reading it.

^ Too many commas and a run-on sentence?

126 Please enlighten us on what bands we should all be listening to.

What will happen when the Hudson is frozen and the cruise ship is stuck? That would make my year.

138 Slim chance. That hasn't happened since the early 90's.

What's with all the hate for the Black Keys?

This reminds me...I'm gonna need to get the fuck out of town on superbowl weekend.

I'll take a band with a bass player any day

Haha. The Black Keys are so "awful" they sold out the Garden twice on their last tour, won numerous awards and sold tons of records. Just your typical & predictable stupid, hipster backlash.

Band of Horses and John Legend are through Citi Private Pass only.

Yes, we all know big, sold-out shows and awards are the markings of a good band! Hootie and the Blowfish have Grammys and Nickelback played the Garden on their last tour. By your logic, they must be great bands!

But I honestly hope you enjoy your by-the-books, corporate, faux-blues rock. The Black Keys rock real hard!

Black Keys is also through Citi only.

The black keys have a lot of good songs. That being said I wouldn't see them in 2014. If you haven't already forget it because you missed the boat.

Agree that the 2nd sentence is an absolute abortion. Dana, you are a dumb, dumb motherfucker. I remember my first sentence. Fucking loser.

"The black keys have a lot of good songs" in the same way that Iowa has a lot of good beaches

The only thing happening that weekend that matters is The Howard Stern Birthday Bash!

@2:19. Please leave Hootie and the Blowfish out of this.

I remember when the black keys were good

The 1st 3 keys albums were amazing. Downhill from there.

219/228 Point being you guys think they suck but millions of people disagree. As for "by-the-books, corporate, faux-blues rock". That's pushing it. Their earlier records were pretty raw. Please let us know what bands we should all be listening to instead!

"you guys think they suck but millions of people disagree"

proving 2:28's point exactly

They're using a can of Royal Crown Hair Dressing. Jesus Christ I don't know if it's a good or bad thing that I use a pomade that my great grandparents used back in the day´╗┐
