Jack White to play a free gig at a London pub today

Ahead of the singer's show at The Garage on Wednesday night

Jack White will play a special free gig in London today (March 28) at the historic George Inn pub.

The former White Stripes frontman released his latest solo album ‘Boarding House Reach’ last week (March 23).

To mark the album’s release, and ahead of his London show at The Garage later this evening, White has now announced that he will play in the courtyard of the George Inn, close to London Bridge station, at 5pm. Entry to the intimate show is free on a first-come, first-served basis, with doors opening at 3.30pm.

Fans will also be able to sample an exclusive Jack White ‘Humoresque’ beer at the venue, with one pint given away free to every customer.

The National Trust-owned establishment is one of London’s oldest pubs and the city’s only existing coaching inn. William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens were both regulars over the years.

‘Boarding House Reach’ is Jack White’s third solo album to date and the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Lazaretto’.

Of ‘Boarding House Reach’, NME‘s Leonie Cooper recently wrote: “Jack White has finally lost the plot – and he sounds totally brilliant. On his third solo album he’s at last shaken off the bluesy shackles of the White Stripes and has created something wild, mysterious and unlike anything else around.”

White has made headlines recently by saying he doesn’t understand what DJ Khaled doesresponding to the Jeremy Corbyn chant and doubting whether the White Stripes will ever reunite.
