The blues rock duo is teaming up with the psychedelic rockers for a handful of dates in the U.S. in late April and early May. The Black Keys are headlining with The Flaming Lips listed as the special guest on all four gigs. The outing marks the first U.S. appearances booked for The Black Keys in 2013. The band winded down 2012 by playing the special guest role for The Rolling Stones in Newark, N.J., in mid-December, followed by two New Year’s Eve headline shows in Las Vegas.
Before joining forces with The Lips, The Black Keys will take the stage at Lollapalooza Brazil in San Paulo March 30.
