The Black Keys' Arena Tour to Be Chronicled in Upcoming Documentary
Published May 13, 2012The Black Keys are currently touring arenas all over North America, and soon, the successful blues rock duo from Akron, OH will be coming to the big screen. The band are currently working with director/photographer Noah Abrams, who is filming a documentary about the band for projected 2013 release.
In an interview with Spin, Abrams described the flick as "a buddy comedy with perhaps the greatest soundtrack of all time." He's reportedly been following the band since the beginning of the year, filming them as they toured throughout Europe and North America. He said, "A lot of music documentaries spend too much time trying to make people look cool. I'm fortunate enough to know both these guys pretty well and their relationship is pretty incredible and very funny."
He's hoping to have film ready in time for festival season next year, and plans to seek theatrical distribution so that it can comes to cinemas everywhere. It promises to be an entertaining film, and he noted, "As big as these guys are now they're still two guys from Akron. The comedy is usually endless with those two."
In other words, this sounds like a combination of the videos for "Gold on the Ceiling" (which plays out like a mini tour doc) and "Tighten Up" (which is downright hilarious). Watch those below.
