Good times are comin’! Rock It turns up to eleven with number 11; the kingsize, kongsize concert of the year.

Always reliable to only roll out the rock when someone special comes to town – Rock It is pleased as punch to follow the footsteps of Foo Fighters, Green Day, Jack Johnson, Powderfinger, Jet, Kings if Leon, Oasis, Silverchair and many more with the awesome awesomeness of our 2012 headliner
The Black Keys.

For those who don’t know - Rock It is a totally local, independent, great value, big production, single stage event with a short, hot bill; old school style. No fuss - just incredible music and every effort to keep it comfortable, simple, friendly and affordable.

The Black Keys are the hottest rock and roll act on the planet right now! After selling out arenas all through the USA, Canada, UK and Europe and headlining Coachella and Lollapalooza and many other festivals they are very pleased to announce their long-awaited return to Australia this October.

Their latest (and seventh) album El Camino is selling truckloads everywhere and its infectious opening track ‘Lonely Boy’ is a certified global smash hit single and they’ll be bringing all these tracks and more to Australian audiences with their electrifying new live show. The show features huge visuals from 20 projectors, giant mirror balls, and all the hits from their deep and consistently awesome back catalogue.

The transformation of The Black Keys from a two-piece garage band playing small clubs to being worthy headliners of arenas and festivals could not be more just or complete and proves that the pure combination of good times, great music and grit can still turn to gold. Rest assured, you haven't seen a show like this before.

The Black Keys have a deep love affair with Australia. They toured here first in 2003 just in time for the release of their second album, Thickfreakness. Since then they have toured here five more times, played every major city and many regional towns multiple times, as well as Bluesfest, The Falls, Groovin' The Moo, Pyramid Rock and West Coast Blues & Roots festivals. They are loved from Darwin to Tassie, from Byron Bay to Geelong. Every true music fan has a Black Keys story to tell, and this October tour will be another big, big chapter.

Get on it! Rock It number 11 is on sale now.
