Jack White has just announced a number of shows in the U.K. and Ireland in the fall, as part of his tour in support of Blunderbuss, White’s first solo album.
The U.K./Ireland leg of the tour kicks off on October 31 in Dublin before heading to London, Bridlington, Blackpool, Birmingham, and finally Edinburgh on November 8. The show in Blackpool is set to take place in the Empress Ballroom Arena, which is the same venue in which The White Stripes filmed their DVD Under Blackpool Lights.
Jack White is bringing along two backing bands for the tour, one all female and one all male. He has rehearsed different sets with each band, as he told The Guardian, “Different versions of the same songs, and each band plays some songs that the other band doesn’t play as well.”
