After previously being included as one of the many acts set to play Woodstock 50—the anniversary celebration of the original legendary festival that will be held in Watkins Glen, NY in August—The Black Keys have announced they will not be able to play the event, citing scheduling issues.
“Due to a scheduling conflict, The Black Keys will unfortunately need to cancel their set at Woodstock,” a statement on the group’s social media pages. “The band wants to let fans know as soon as possible and before tickets go on sale.”
Woodstock 50 is set to include performances from Dead & Company, Santana, Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters, Sturgill Simpson, Brandi Carlile, Hot Tuna, Gary Clark Jr., John Fogerty, The Lumineers, The Raconteurs, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Chance The Rapper, Miley Cyrus, Halsey, Janelle Monáe, Jay-Z, Margo Price, The Marcus King Band and more.
