The Black Keys released their 11th studio album, Dropout Boogie, back in May.

Since early July, guitarist/singer Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney have been out on the road with their backing band, celebrating the new record and, of course, playing a handful of classics and hits from their career, which to date has won them five Grammy Awards (among 14 nominations), tens of millions of song streams, fans around the world and a legacy as one of the most successful bands in rock music for the past two-plus decades.

The tour stopped through the Kia Forum in Los Angeles this past Saturday, Oct. 8 with special guests Band of Horses and the Velveteers, and saw the Black Keys play six songs from their acclaimed 2010 album, Brothers, which is widely considered their breakthrough record after five albums of mostly “underground” acclaim. Elsewhere in the set were songs from other albums — including 2021’s Delta Kream, a collection of covers of blues classics that inspired the duo along the way to superstardom.

I Got Mine
Howlin’ for You
