The Black Keys are heading back to the Bay Area.

The phenomenally popular garage-blues-rock duo performs Nov. 3 at Oracle Arena in Oakland.

Tickets are $56.75-$75.75 and go on sale at 10 a.m. June 6 through www.ticketmaster.com. There are also several pre-sale opportunities, which are outlined on the event page on the Ticketmaster site.

For those who can't make the Oakland show, The Black Keys are also playing Nov. 4 at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento.

The group, which consists of guitarist-vocalist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney, is touring in support of its critically praised new album, "Turn Blue," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

"Turn Blue" was produced by Danger Mouse. The album's first single is the smash "Fever."

The tour kicks off later this month in Europe. It hits North America in early September, opening with two dates in the group's native Ohio.

The band last performed at Oracle Arena in 2012. It also was one of the headliners at the inaugural BottleRock Napa Valley festival in 2013.
