Jack White announces 2018 headlining tour dates

Less than a week after announcing the release of his third solo album, Jack White has confirmed plans to hit the road in support of the new record. On Tuesday (Jan. 16), the White Stripes frontman unveiled a slew of tour dates which will find him performing across the globe in countries including the United States, Canada, France, and the United Kingdom. The tour will kick off on April 19 at the Little Caesars Arena in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan. The lengthy tour itinerary will then conclude over four months later on Aug. 23 at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.

White’s extensive tour schedule also includes his multiple music festival appearances at such events as Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Music Festival, Boston Calling, and New York’s Governors Ball.

Last week, White finally confirmed the release of his upcoming new album, Boarding House Reach, following months of fan speculation and a cryptic teaser video. In addition to the album confirmation, the musician also debuted two songs from the record, “Connected By Love” (which can be seen above) and “Respect Commander.”

Boarding House Reach is set to be released on March 23 through Third Man Records / Columbia Records. Boarding House Reach is the follow-up to White’s 2014 album, Lazaretto.

Over the past week, Jack White’s name has become a headline staple with a handful of summertime music festivals confirming his appearance. After months of speculations and a cryptic teaser later, the singer has confirmed the release of this much-anticipated new album. On Wednesday (Jan. 10), White announced the release of his third, solo album, Boarding House Reach, by releasing two songs from it.

The first song, and lead single, “Connected By Love” was given an official music video for the occasion. The five-minute, Pasqual Gutierrez-directed clip can be seen above. The second song White unveiled is titled “Respect Commander” and can be streamed here.

In December, White posted a four-minute teaser clip titled “Servings and Portions from my Boarding House Reach.” Shortly after the mix debuted, fans began to speculate that the songs featured in the clip would be included on the new album. Theories were also popping around that the new album would be titled “Boarding House Reach” which proved to be true.

In addition to the two new songs and new album confirmation, White has also announced that he will be releasing a limited edition 7-inch vinyl featuring both “Connected By Love” and “Respect Commander.” The 7-inch will only be available this Saturday, Jan. 13, at Third Man Records’ stores in Nashville and Detroit.

Boarding House Reach is the follow-up to 2014’s Lazaretto. In support of the new album, White has already been confirmed to headline several music festivals including Shaky Knees in Atlanta, Boston Calling, and New York’s Governors Ball. While there has been no official release date given, Boarding House Reach will be released through White’s Third Man Records and Columbia Records.
