Jack White Performs First of Five Acoustic Shows in Alaska
Jack White recently announced he would conclude his tour in support of last year's Lazaretto with all-acoustic concerts in the five states he has yet to visit. After a pair of sets at this year’s Coachella, White made his first of the five stops in Anchorage, Alaska, last night (April 20).
You can check out a couple of videos form the evening below. The first features a snippet of White and his three-piece backing band -- consisting of Fats Kaplin, Lillie Mae Rische and Dominic Davis -- performing the White Stripes’ “We’re Going to Be Friends.” The second shows White telling the audience, “I was arrested in this suit once, and I take it with me wherever I go.”
White is announcing the five acoustic gigs the morning of the concerts, with tickets selling later that day for $3 per person. After he wraps up the shows -- which are believed to take place in Idaho, Wyoming and North and South Dakota -- White will take a break from touring for what a press release dubbed “a long period of time.”
