Guitarist adds a second show at London's Alexandra Palace to his November run of shows
Jack White has extended his full UK and Ireland tour, which will take place later this year
The guitar virtuoso, who released his debut solo album ‘Blunderbuss’ earlier this year, has added a second show at London Alexandra Palace on November 3, having previously announced a November 2 show at the venue.
The run of seven dates now begins at Dublin’s O2 Arena on October 31 and runs until November 8 when White headlines Edinburgh’s Usher Hall.
The tour also includes shows in Birmingham, Bridlington and Blackpool’s Empress Ballroom, the venue where The White Stripes recorded their first live DVD ‘Under Blackpool Lights’.
The Welsh crooner collaborated with White for a one-off release on his Third Man Records label earlier this year, recording a version of Frankie Lane’s track ‘Jezebel’ and a cover of Howlin’ Wolf’s ‘Evil’ for the release.
Speaking to NME backstage at V Festival in a video which you can see at the bottom of the page, Jones said that he’d enjoyed the collaboration immensely and would love to turn it into a full album.
Asked about working with White, the singer said: “Jack White had an idea for two songs ‘Evil’ and ‘Jezabel’, which is an old Frankie Laine song and he had a new arrangement for it. So he said to me ‘Do you know these songs?’ and I said ‘Yes, I know both of them’.”
He continued: “I was in Nashville at the time so we got together and we did the two songs. I’d love to do an album with Jack White in the future.”
Jack White will play:
O2 Arena Dublin (October 31)
London Alexandra Palace (November 2, 3)
