THE BLACK KEYS TO PLAY ØYA ON FRIDAY 10TH AUGUST!
Finally! The THE BLACK KEYS are one of the bands our audience really wanted to be booked for this year’s festival. To get the duo to Norway has been hard, since the band has become insanely big in the U.S. and the UK. The Black Keys are now confirmed to play on the main stage on Friday 10th of August.
They are headlining one of the world’s biggest festivals, Coachella in California. They have sold out three concerts at the giant Alexandria Palace in London, several months in advance. Their latest album, El Camino, has given them a large audience in Norway.
THE BLACK KEYS (US) – El Camino by The Black Keys has been one of the most popular albums in the festival office for the last few months. The album was released just before christmas and was well received. It was their second in a row that went into the top three on the album charts in the US. The album is full of classic, catchy rock. It is also has clear traces of soul, garage rock and blues. The band has in recent years taken the step up from sweaty bars to large arenas, both at home and in Europe. On Friday 10th of August you can, for the first time, experience the band in large format in Norway.
