Photos: The Black Keys with Cage the Elephant @ the United Center (Chicago), 9/27/14

The Black Keys spent the weekend at Chicago’s United Center for back-to-back shows in support of their latest album, Turn Blue. Highlights included a cover of Edwyn Collins’s “A Girl Like You”, “Strange Times” (from 2008’s Attack & Release), and “Leavin’ Trunk” from the duo’s debut album, 2002’s The Big Come Up—the latter of which proved that the band is best when at its most bluesy. A captivating rendition of “Little Black Submarines” topped off the 21-song setlist, accompanied in the encore by Turn Blue‘s title track and “Weight of Love.” Cage the Elephant kicked off the night (the first of two final gigs for the current leg of the tour) with frontman Matt Shultz offering the crowd-surfing, shirt-ripping, stage-diving performance he’s notorious for and likely turning some unknowing Black Keys fans into full-fledged Cage supporters.
