The Black Keys Will Perform At Next Year’s NHL Winter Classic Outdoor Ice Hockey Game In Boston

The 2023 Classic will be held at Fenway Park on January 2, with host team the Boston Bruins facing off against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The game will be broadcast from 2pm ET on TNT, Sportsnet, CBC and TVA Sports. The Black Keys will perform during the game’s first intermission. Tickets are on sale now.

The Black Keys released their 11th studio album, ‘Dropout Boogie’, back in May. In a three-star review, NME said that while “previous albums have effortlessly gunned for their arena-punching heights”, the band’s latest sees them “thriving by making music more fit to shake down the walls of their local Nashville dive bars”.
