Pressemeddelelse   •   Jan 29, 2018 13:00 CET

The pioneering rock ‘n’ roll virtuoso will play his first Danish show in four years in Odense

Last week gave us new music for Magicbox and the main stages alongside a string of acts for the new tent stage at Tinderbox. But even so, there is still room on the poster for a new headliner, and that space is now filled by a guitarist, who has both revolutionized garage rock and created a bassline that is such a classic that it can be heard every week at football stadiums, sports arenas, and everywhere else, where thousands of people have gathered. He will be headlining a large number of the major European festivals, and we are very proud that Jack White has agreed to also be a headliner in Odense this year.

  • -Over the years, there has been great demand for rock acts at Tinderbox and with the addition of Jack White, we feel certain that we have fulfilled the request of the audience. He is an amazing guitarist with an impressive catalog of hard-hitting classics, which is sure to knock people’s socks off, says festival director, Brian Nielsen.

Jack White started his career in the groundbreaking duo The White Stripes, which in 2001 crashed into the consciousness of rock fans everywhere with "Fell in Love with a Girl", a short and powerful burst of a song on the otherwise versatile album "White Blood Cells". Jack and his partner, Meg White, released six albums as The White Stripes before they broke up the band in 2011. By that time, Jack White had already released records with The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather as well as produced records for a large number of others including country legends Loretta Lynn and Wanda Jackson.

But since then, the majority of the productive musicians' attention has been directed towards a solo career launched with the excellent album "Blunderbuss". Since then, we have got the album "Lazaretto", and this March, Jack White will release the album "Boarding House Reach". So thankfully, there is a brand new music coming soon from the amazing songwriter.

Concerts with Jack White are an amazing show of musicality and a journey through an exceptional catalog of songs like "Steady As She Goes", "Hotel Yorba", "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground", "Love Interruption", "Lazaretto", and "Seven Nation Army".

Jack White last visited Denmark in 2014, so it's high time that the incredibly talented guitarist and songwriter will return to paint Tinderbox red, white, and black.
