Akron natives, The Black Keys returned home to Blossom Music Center last night as a part of their Dropout Boogie Tour.

A near capacity crowd welcomed the local hero's and the band did not disappoint.

Drummer Patrick Carney and vocalist/guitarist Dan Auerbach were both situated at the very front of the stage while their four-piece backing band played behind them.  Their no frills stage only featured a big video screen at the back of the stage.

The band came out rocking with "I Got Mine" and followed that up with "Howlin' For You" from their album Brothers

Auerbach told the audience that "when I was in high school I worked here in the parking lot."  He then asked the audience to sing loudly so the workers in the parking lot could hear them as they launched into "Gold On The Ceiling."

The Black Keys then brought out two performers from Memphis who played on their Delta Kream album.  Bassist Eric Deaton and guitarist Kenny Brown came out to play some rocking blues covers from R.L. Burnside, John Lee Hooker and Richard Berry.

The second half of the show saw the backing band come back as the two guys from Akron played selection of songs including, "Hi/Lo," "Wild Child," "Ten Cent Pistol" and "She's Long Gone."

The show came to a close with people dancing and singing along to "Black Submarines" and "Lonely Boy."

A Band of Horses opened the show with about a 45 minute set of indie rock tunes.
