The Black Keys, who skipped Pittsburgh last year on two legs of the "El Camino" tour, are circling back to play the Consol Energy Center at 8 p.m. April 30 with The Flaming Lips.
The blues-rockers from Akron, Ohio, are still touring in support of their seventh album, "El Camino," which is nominated for Record of the Year and Album of the Year Grammys. Their last Pittsburgh performance was 2009 at the Three Rivers Arts Festival, as a 2010 show with Kings of Leon booked for the First Niagara Pavilion was canceled.
The concert is one of only a few dates with the Flaming Lips. Last year's Black Keys tour featured the Arctic Monkeys.
