Jack White announces Lazaretto summer tour

Jack White has announced dates for a full summer tour in support of his forthcoming album, “Lazaretto”, due June 10.

White will kick off the world tour on May 29th at Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa, OK and continue with stops throughout North America, Europe, and the United Kingdom, wrapping up with a headline slot at the Osheaga Music & Arts Festival in Montreal in early August.

Kelley Stoltz will open Jack's headline dates from May 29th through June 5th, while Benjamin Booker will support July 20th- 31st.

A limited number of pre-sale tickets will be available to members of Third Man's Vault at 10am local time on Wednesday, April 9th.

General tickets go on-sale at 10am local time on Friday, April 11th.

White is previewing his sophomore solo album, “Lazaretto”, with the release of a video for the track, “High Ball Stepper”; the title track to will be released as the new album’s first single later this month.

To help promote the album, White plans to issue the “world’s fastest-released record in the history of mankind” as part of Record Store Day.

At 10 AM on April 19, White will hit the stage at his Third Man Record label's blue room and record a direct-to-acetate what will serve as the limited edition version of his next single, a live rendition of the title track from “Lazaretto.”

Following the performance, the masters will be rushed to United Record Pressing who will immediately begin pressing 45s. The sleeves will be printed from pictures taken at the show and the finished records will be rushed back to Third Man to sell to awaiting fans in a matter of mere hours, with an expected issue time of 4 PM.
