The Black Keys Welcome Joe Walsh In Los Angeles


The Black Keys rolled through the Los Angeles area for a concert at The Forum in Inglewood on Tuesday night as part of their Let’s Rock Tour. Guitarist Dan Auerbach, drummer Patrick Carney and company welcomed legendary guitarist Joe Walsh three-quarters of the way through their set.

The Black Keys kicked things off with “I Got Mine” from their 2008 album Attack And Release. They then turned to their 2019 album Let’s Rock for “Eagle Birds.” The band relied heavily on new material during the set including “Fire Walk With Me,” “Walk Across The Water” and “Tell Me Lies.” They would also deliver favorites like “Gold On The Ceiling,” “Fever” and “Tighten Up.”

After “Your Touch,” the Keys welcomed Walsh for a song called “Water Street” which, according to Setlist.FM, was a debut for the band. While it may have been a first for the Black Keys, Auerbach performed the song with Walsh and original The James Gang guitarist Glenn Schwartz, who wrote the song, at Coachella in 2016 with Auerbach’s solo project The Arcs. An interesting sidenote, both Walsh and Schwartz attended Kent State University where The James Gang formed. There is a mural in Kent, Ohio at the Water Street Tavern featuring Walsh.


Joe would stay on for “She’s Long Gone” from The Black Keys’ 2010 album Brothers. The band closed out the set with “Lonely Boy.” The Keys would come back out for a three-song encore of Let’s Rock singles “Lo/Hi,” and “Go” as well as the El Camino classic “Little Black Submarines” to close out the evening.
