Jack White reveals tour dates

Jack White will be touring Australia with his solo debut Blunderbuss and an arsenal of White Stripes, Raconteurs and Dead Weather songs stopping in for a headline set as Splendour in the Grass and a pair of sideshows. The news of Jack’s visit broke on FL earlier this week after a teasing clue offered by the tour promoters was quickly solved in the forums, but now the full details for the tour have been confirmed.

Based on Jack’ recent (and mightily impressive) setlists we can expect to see gigs featuring tracks from all his projects and even a cover or two – perhaps some Hank Williams, Leadbelly or Dylan – when Jack hits the stage for these highly anticipated shows.

Lanie Lane, who has released a single through Jack’s Third Man records, will the be support act at both shows.

Jack White sideshows:

Wednesday July 25th – Festival Hall, Melbourne

Thursday 26th July – Hordern, Sydney

Tickets $83.70 in Melbourne; $86.50 in Sydney

Pre-sale from 12 Noon AEST, Thursday 26 April

General public on sale from 9am Tuesday 1 May
