The Black Keys will bring their International Players Tour to Pittsburgh for an October show at PPG Paints Arena.

The duo of guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney will perform at the venue on October 10 as part of their 31-date North American tour to promote their new album, “Ohio Players,” which is set for release on Friday. The pair formed in 2001 in Akron, Ohio.

The Head and The Heart will be the opening act.

“Ohio Players” will be the Black Keys’ 12th studio album. According to the group’s website, the title was “inspired by the legendary Dayton, Ohio, funk band of the same name.” It features collaborations with friends and colleagues, such as Beck, Noel Gallagher, Dan the Automator, Greg Kurstin, Juicy J, Lil Noid and others.

“No matter who we collaborate with, it never feels like we’re giving up our identity,” Auerbach said of the album. “It only feels like it adds some special touch … But when it came time to finish the album, it was just Pat and me.”

The lead single, “Beautiful People (Stay High),” recently reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Airplay chart and AAA Airplay charts.

The duo, known for songs like “Tighten Up,” “Howlin’ for You,” “Lonely Boy” and “Gold on the Ceiling,” have been nominated for numerous awards, winning five Grammys, a Brit and an MTV Music Video award in 2010 for their “Tighten Up” video.

The Black Keys have performed in Pittsburgh 10 times, most recently on Oct. 7, 2019, at PPG Paints Arena as part of their Let’s Rock tour.
