Big Day Out: The Black Keys Out...Kora In

The Big Day Out is disappointed to announce that The Black Keys will be unable to perform on any of the 2011 Big Day Out events in Australia or New Zealand due to exhaustion.
 
The band have provided the following information as explanation to event patrons and fans:
 
“The Black Keys are sorry to announce the cancellation of the New Zealand and Australian tour including all appearances at the Big Day Out touring festival as well as a portion of the European tour in March. An arduous year of touring and promotion has drained the band and necessitated time off."
 
On a positive note, Big Day Out promoters are pleased to announce the inclusion of Kora as the Auckland replacement. Kora are one of the most exciting live bands in the country and BDO is thrilled to have them step in on the 5.30 to 6.20pm slot on the Green Stage.
