Monday, Feb. 2 –
Jack White, famous rock musician and wildly known as frontman for the duo, The White Stripes, started down the road of a solo career in 2011 when the group went separate ways. His current world tour will make its way from Nashville, Tenn., to the McCasland Field House at the University of Oklahoma in Norman at the beginning of February – an added stop on the tour’s roster. Having been a member of a number of different bands, as well as his recent, successful solo career, White has recorded many top singles and albums that went on to win him a total of eight Grammy awards. Preforming in cities all over the world, there is record of White being an unbelievable showstopper. The audience at the McCasland Field House will undoubtedly hear hits from White’s Billboard toping solo albums, Blunderbuss and Lazaretto. He released his debut solo album, Blunderbuss, in 2012 and followed it with Lazaretto in 2014. Lazaretto won White the record for largest sales for a vinyl since 1991. Having released several chart-topping rock singles over the past four years, Rolling Stone has recognized White on its list of “The 100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time.” With an eccentric, world-renowned rock style, White’s unforgettable performance is the thing to see on Monday, Feb. 2, in Norman.
