The Black Keys performing at October opening of U. Village Microsoft Store

For weeks, the Oct. 20 opening date has been emblazoned on the side of the Microsoft Store in University Village.

Today, Microsoft announced details of the opening events.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony begins at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 20.

On Friday, Oct. 21, rock duo The Black Keys is scheduled to give a free performance. The time of the performance, and other details, are yet to be determined. Those who want to attend have to get tickets on Oct. 20 at the U. Village Microsoft Store. Tickets are first come, first served and the number of tickets are limited.

Information on how to get tickets and more details of events on the opening days will be provided on the Microsoft Store Facebook page.

You can also vote on the store’s Facebook page to determine how $1 million in software grants should be given to three local organizations: TreeHouse, Washington STEM and the YMCA of Greater Seattle.

In 2010, Miley Cyrus and Dave Matthews performed at the opening of the Microsoft Store in Bellevue Square.
