The former White Stripes man will play the Eventim Apollo on July 5
Jack White has announced plans to play a one-off UK show this summer.
He will appear at London’s Eventim Apollo on July 5, following his headline set at Open’er Festival in Gdynia, Poland the previous evening. This is White’s second scheduled appearance in the UK this summer and will come after he plays Glastonbury Festival in June.
Meanwhile, Jack White will release his new solo album, ‘Lazaretto’, on June 9. White’s second solo album is the follow up to his 2012 debut ‘Blunderbuss’ and will be released by White’s own label Third Man and XL Recordings. White will also record and release a record in one day to celebrate this year’s Record Store Day on April 19. The former White Stripes man will record the song ‘Lazaretto’ onstage in the ‘blue room’ during a show at his Third Man Records base in Nashville at 10am local time, recording direct-to-acetate a limited edition live version of the title track from his second solo album, ‘Lazaretto’.
When White finishes recording, the masters will be taken to local record plant United Record Pressing, who will make up the 45rpm singles and the sleeves will be printed from photos taken of the recording. The records will then be sold back at Third Man Records and will continue to be printed and sold as long as there are fans waiting to buy them.
