Hey, what you thoughts about them? I'm attending to their concert in two weeks and I'm pretty excited. Anyone here have seem their live performances?

I haven't seen them live but I never hear too many people say they don't sound good live.

I think they're pretty good, their older stuff especially. Thickfreakness/Magic Potion era was the best. The newer material isn't as raw but it's still good. I'd love to see them.

They were amazing when they played at the O2 - I saw them last December.

I've seen them live in the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. Absolutely amazing, best performance I've ever seen from them. Lately they've been sounding really good live.

I saw them live in an arena. They were good. Their opening act (Arctic Monkeys) were even better. I do wish I'd brought my foam earplugs. I had the Hearos "Rock'n'Roll" plugs in, but they're about 10dB less attenuation than the foamies, IIRC. The concert was fricken loud. Maybe it's because I was about 30 rows up and in the back, whereas I'm used to being in the pit just a few feet in front of the stage--maybe the PA speaker arrays project better up there than so close to the stage.

I've never seen them live
I'm sure they'll rock the house though from what videos I've seen.

I've seen them twice and they've been amazing each time. You're in for a good show!

I'm a big fan of The Black Keys. I've never seen 'em live but I hear they have a big sound. Enjoy!
