May 28 (UPI) -- Rock duo The Black Keys announced a halt to the North American leg of the band's so-called International Players tour to rework which venues will host the shows.

"Following the recent run of shows in the U.K. & Europe, including stops at iconic venues like Brixton Academy and the Zenith in Paris, we have decided to make some changes to the North American leg of the International Players tour that will enable us to offer a similarly exciting, intimate experience for both fans and the band," The Black Keys announced on X.

The band said fans who bought tickets to canceled shows will receive full refunds.

"Apologies for the surprise change," the duo posted. "We're pretty sure everyone is going to be excited when you see what we have in mind."

Ticket-holders won't have to act to obtain full refunds, which will be issued automatically according to the method of payment used.

The ticket refunds will be issued within three weeks.

Fans with tickets to canceled shows will have the first opportunity to obtain tickets for the revised slate of shows when the respective venues are announced.
