Madrid fans of the high-energy American rock duo, The Black Keys, are set for excitement in the lead up to a performance on 28 November 2012.
Since its release on 21 June 2011, The Black Keys ´ latest and seventh album, El Camino, has been dominating playlists, going ‘round in heads and featuring in radio countdown charts all over the world. Although notably different in pace and feel from their widely-loved previous albums, The Black Keys have still attracted both consumer and industry applaud for El Camino.
The hit single from the album, Lonely Boy, has a knee-bopping beat and catchy lyrics that consistently manages to prompt smiles and sing-a-longs from listeners, which explains its roaring success across the globe.
Supporting The Black Keys in Madrid is English indie rock group, The Macabees, who will be playing songs from their newest and third album, Given To The Wild.
The Black Key will be playing at the Palacio de Deportes de la Comunidad de Madrid on Avenida Felipe in Madrid’s Salamanca district, which is not far from the city centre. The venue has stacks of parking spaces for concert-goers who prefer to drive, although traffic and parking queues means that drivers are best to leave extra time to get into the concert.
The Palace can also be reached using Madrid’s Metro system, with Goya Station on lines two and four, and O´Donnell Station on line 6 being the closest to the venue. Many of Madrid’s city buses also swing by the venue, so check out the list of bus numbers under the ‘Location’ tab on the Palacio de Deportes website if you think the bus is for you.
The Black Keys concerts starts at 21:30 on 28 November and tickets can be purchased online well before the gig in late November, with prices ranging between 40 and 300 Euros.
