Two of the biggest '00s rock acts -- the Black Keys and Modest Mouse -- will attempt to fill Minneapolis' biggest arena.

Target Center is set to host the eagerly titled, 31-date "Let's Rock Tour" on September 28. Tickets ($42.50-$502) go on sale March 22 via the venue box office and AXS.com. If you're a CITI cardholder, congrats! That means you're eligible for a March 19 pre-sale. 

The Black Keys, those surprisingly huge blues-rockin' bros from Akron, Ohio, just dropped their first new track in five years, "Lo/Hi" (posted below); click here for our review of their 2014 Target Center gig. Modest Mouse, those even more surprising pop hitmakers behind 2004's "Float On," haven't released an album since 2015's disappointing Strangers to Ourselves, the Pacific Northwest indie rockers' sixth LPBoth groups boast devoted fanbases, so there's a prayer they'll pack the cavernous hoops bunker. 

Let's hear that new blues-psych jam from Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney:
