The former White Stripes frontman played his first ever show in Alaska last night (April 20)
White’s acoustic tour began in Alaska, with the singer performing at the Wendy Williams Arena in Anchorage. Johnson joined White for the performance of the White Stripes track ‘We’re Going To Be Friends’, a cover of which was recorded by Johnson on his 2006 soundtrack album ‘Sing-A-Longs And Lullabies For The Film Curious George’. Watch fan-shot footage below.
The former White Stripes frontman will play shows over the next week in the five US states he has yet to perform in, namely Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota and North Dakota. White has announced that he will take a break from live performances “for a long period of time” once the tour finishes.
“This is your world right now,” White continued. “Digital, analogue… however you consume music, let it move your balls and move your brain. I want everyone in this audience to spread the word: Treat musicians with as much respect as you treat actors, directors, and film studios. Treat your local punk bands as well as you treat the new blockbuster movie.”
