The Arctic Monkeys and The Black Keys

The Black Keys are currently touring the country (and parts of Canada), opened by the Arctic Monkeys. I've had the chance to see them twice on this tour; once here in Cincinnati and the second time with my mom in Cleveland. Both bands put on an incredible show; which is impressive considering it's a bit of firsts for both of them. This is The Black Keys first headlining arena tour and the Arctic Monkeys first arena tour, at least in the US (they have done an arena tour in the UK).

Perhaps fresher is better. I had a great time at both shows and the pictures to prove it!

First, my up-close pictures from Cincinnati.

I spent most of the first set trying to figure out what "H.Y.F.R." stood for. It's apparently a reference to a Drake song.

He's got that rock star swagger!

I didn't realize I was getting a picture of this guy's butt; just wanted a shot of Patrick Carney's awesome drum set!

Oh, how I love this man...

Don't worry, Dan, I love you, too!


Next, my Cleveland pictures...a show enjoyed with my lovely mother.

Hi Mom!

His swagger is evident even from this far away!

I loved the videos playing behind the band!

My favorite shot of the night.

Another great shot...encore!

Until next time, Cleveland!
