Jack White is the man
Jack White is the man. There’s no other way to put it. I don’t think there’s been an artist we’ve covered on the RiO!B that had three separate stories written about them in one post until now.
First, Jack’s new band The Dead Weather (whose new album is insane, btw) have announced a whole new slew of tour dates (via Consequence of Sound). After performing at the Bonnaroo and Glastonbury festivals, TDW is set to rock North America with their first show kicking off on July 13th in Washington, D.C. All of those tour dates are listed below and tickets go on sale Friday, May 7th.
Secondly, also from our friends at CoS, we now know that Jack is ready to revive his first band The White Stripes. He spoke to The Guardian recently and said that he would like to get back with his “sister” Meg after a three-year hiatus due to her anxiety. He now feels that the anxiety is gone and wants to start working on White Stripes material again. Wonderful news!
Finally, from the good people at TwentyFourBit, Jack is preparing to work with none other than Jay-Z. After a one-off recording session in New York, Jigga is set to head down to Nashville to work on new music with Jack at Third Man Records headquarters in just a few weeks.
So, as I said at the top of this post, Jack White is the man. Don’t even try arguing with me about it because you’ll lose.
