Jack White is one of the most important figures in modern rock music and one of the most popular and successful musicians within this genre dating back to the beginning of 21st century, when together with his ex-wife Meg White he performed in the duo The White Stripes. Already with the first album White Blood Cells (2001) the band earned recognition from both fans and music critics, but they became true superstars two years later with the album Elephant. This album is often still called one of the best records of the previous decade, while its most popular song Seven Nation Army with its iconic guitar riff has become an epochal anthem - it is hard to imagine any modern sports event happening without it being played.
White has always been a very active musician - already in 2005, aside from playing in The White Stripes, he founded the band The Raconteurs, that later become basis of the super band The Dead Weather. In 2011, when The White Stripes officially announced their break up, Jack White turned to his solo career. During this time he released three studio albums, all recorded using analogue technologies, regularly surpassing various vinyl sales records, including the one for the most records sold in a single week.
Jack White will visit Latvia as a part of his latest album’s Boarding House Reach worldwide tour. The album was released in March and instantly became the most sold album in the USA, reaching the first spot on Billboard Top 100. The album was also praised by music critics who saluted the musician's ambitions, artistic experiments and his daring to step aside from the safe formulas of his previous success, completing his typical blues-rock sound with countless influences, including from urban music.
It is important to note that for Jack White direct contact with his listeners is very important and for that reason the artist has requested that in his Riga concert, just like in all the other concerts of the Boarding House Reach tour, cell phones won't be allowed to make sure that it’s a unique concert experience for everyone.
