One of the biggest rock bands in the world, The Black Keys, haven’t announced any plans for a 2014 tour, but earlier today they announced a New York City show at Roseland Ballroom scheduled for the end of January (part of the NYC Super Bowl festivities) on their twitter account:

It appears that ticketing will be done exclusively through Citi, with no public sales through Ticketmaster or Live Nation. Clicking through the link above, the Citi website has changed the ticket buying information multiple times. As of 11am, it says:

The Black Keys
Location: New York, NY | Roseland Ballroom
Date: Friday, January 31st
Access: Exclusive Ticket Offer
Citi presents six time Grammy award-winning rock band, The Black Keys, in an intimate performance exclusively for Citi cardmembers.

Tickets Available January 28th at 2:00PM ET: CLICK HERE

So get your Citicard ready (or apply for a new card with Citibank) and set a reminder in your calendar to call in and buy your tickets.

Update: There is now a page at Ticketmaster that has tickets listed at $66.50 including fees. Cardholders are allowed a maximum of 2 tickets per order.

What do you think? Are The Black Keys doing a disservice to their fans by doing this corporate deal, or do you give them credit for making a good business decision for themselves? Does it even matter?

    I was locked and loaded to get tix at 10 am. At 10 the site was still locked and reported the tix would go on sale at 2pm. at 1:55 I go into the site, and it looks like it is already sold out. Then I see the update here they went on sale at noon. Way to screw the pooch TM/Citi.

      even at noon, they were sold out in less than one minute.
