The Black Keys, consisting of Patrick Carney and Dan Auerbach, have cancelled the North American leg of their International Players Tour. The 31-date tour was set to begin on September 17th in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but was quietly cancelled.

After news of the cancellation spread over the weekend, the band addressed the situation on Instagram, reassuring fans of their well-being. “The band wants to assure everyone that Dan & Patrick are alive and well,” they wrote on Sunday.

Although they did not comment on reports of low ticket sales, the duo suggested a shift from arena performances to more intimate venues. “Following the recent run of shows in the UK & Europe, including stops at iconic venues like Brixton Academy and the Zenith in Paris, we have decided to make some changes to the North American leg of the International Players Tour that will enable us to offer a similarly exciting, intimate experience for both fans and the band,” they explained. The band promised to announce revised tour dates soon.

Ticketholders were informed that their purchases would be fully refunded and assured they would be the first in line for tickets when the new dates are announced. “Thank you for your understanding and apologies for the surprise change,” the post continued. “We’re pretty sure everyone is going to be excited when you see what we have in mind though, and look forward to seeing everyone soon.”

The Black Keys recently wrapped up the European leg of their tour in mid-May.
