The Black Keys Launch Rolling Green Next Month!
16 March 2015
With Spiderbait, Band Of Skulls & Bad//Dreems
Hunter Valley NSW & Yarra Valley VIC
Rolling Green, the new event from the promoters of a day on the green, debuts next month when The Black Keys hit our shores as part of the Turn Blue World Tour.
During their Australian tour, The Black Keys will headline the very first Rolling Green shows at Rochford Wines, Yarra Valley VIC on Sunday April 5 and Bimbadgen Winery, Hunter Valley NSW on Saturday April 11 with supports Spiderbait, Band Of Skulls and Bad//Dreems.
Rolling Green has had a great reception since announced last year and is a welcome new addition to the outdoor concert calendar. Camping is available close to both venues making it a great weekend away option.
The Black Keys are keen to get back on stage after drummer Patrick Carney seriously injured his shoulder earlier this year causing the cancellation of their European tour. They will arrive on Australian shores well-rested and ready to rock!
Turn Blue, the band’s 8th full-length album, is their highest charting album internationally to date, including debuts on both the Billboard 200 and ARIA Charts at Number 1, and Top 5 and Top 10 charts worldwide. They’ve also notched up nominations at many recent music awards, most recently for Best Rock Performance (Fever) at the US Grammy Awards and Best International Group at the UK Brit Awards.
As the Rolling Green events are imminent, promoters advise the following important information.
Rolling Green is a fully licensed event. Strictly no BYO alcohol. Lots of great food will be available on site or BYO picnic (cooler bags OK, no eskies allowed). Picnic rugs are in, no chairs permitted. Click here for more.
