The Grammy Award winning band BLACK KEYS performed a totally sold out show at The Chelsea inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas tonight, February 19, 2011.
You could feel the excitement throughout The Cosmopolitan tonight, as fans made their way to the Chelsea for the highly anticipated 1st of 2 shows this weekend in Vegas. It was SO packed inside The Cosmopolitan, that a line of cars formed all the way out to the Las Vegas Strip, just to get into the parking structure. The valet attendants at Aria Hotel were even wise to this, asking people valeting at Aria Hotel if they were going to The Cosmopolitan. If they said yes, they were turned away. It was a mad house.
The Black Keys are a Grammy award-winning American blues-rock music duo consisting of vocalist/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer/producer Patrick Carney. The band was formed in Akron, Ohio, in 2001. As of October 2010, the band has sold over 1.7 million records.
