You are unfamiliar with the concept of performers altering what they do on tour when they are opening for another band as opposed to what they are doing during headlining shows. I am sure the goal will be reaching a new audience and not alienating the people that are there.
Maybe it's been too long since I've seen her, but she never struck me as being weird for any audience. What the fuck am I missing?
I think more than anything, Black Keys fans at those dates are gonna be bummed they're not getting to see Cage The Elephant. It may just be the least tight thing that's ever happened to them.
I'm not "correcting" anyone or making anything up. You can continue to, for some reason, be perturbed by my comments on here, but what i am saying are perfectly reasonable points of discussion.
Also, cyber-hugs to you.
