Jack White will hit the road for “The Supply Chain Issues Tour” in 2022.
His initial North American run, which includes his previously announced headlining appearance at High Water Festival in North Charleston, S.C., concludes at 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colo., June 11.
From there, White heads overseas, where he kicks off a European tour with two nights at London’s Eventim Apollo, June 27-28, before winding his way through the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Switzerland and France. White wraps his European run with three nights at Paris’ L’Olympia, July 18-20.
White then will return to North America for a two-week run that begins at Milwaukee’s UWM Panther Arena, Aug. 16, and ends at Kansas City’s Starlight Theatre, Aug. 29.
Live Nation will produce the tour, White’s first headlining run on his own in four years.
In November, White announced plans to release two new albums – his first since 2018’s Boarding House Reach – in 2022, with Fear of the Dawn arriving April 8 and Entering Heaven Alive dropped July 22.
While White has played occasionally under his own name in recent years – an October 2019 Detroit show supporting the Bernie Sanders campaign, a last-minute “Saturday Night Live” turn in October 2020 and gigs opening London’s Third Man Records and Warstic’s Dallas headquarters, both businesses he’s involved in – he hasn’t embarked on a proper tour of his own since 2018. White hit the road with his band The Raconteurs in 2019.
Highlights from White’s 2018 touring, when a total gross of $6.6 million landed him on Pollstar’s year-end North American touring chart, included a sold-out play at Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena that sold 14,178 tickets and grossed $855,851, and a two-night stand at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium that moved 12,694 tickets and grossed $825,440. That year, White also headlined several festivals, including Chicago’s Lollapalooza, Atlanta’s Shaky Knees, New York’s Governors Ball and Boston’s Boston Calling.
After a series of presales, tickets for “The Supply Chain Issues Tour” go onsale to the general public on Dec. 17 at 10 a.m. local time. Find dates for White’s 2022 touring below.
