Jack White will bring his solo band to Pittsburgh for the first time on July 27 for a show at Stage AE Outdoors.
Tickets ($45) go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at all Ticketmaster locations, charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000 or online at www.ticketmaster.com.
A limited number of pre-sale tickets will be available to members of Third Man’s Vault at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
The singer-songwriter-guitarist has played here several times as a member of the White Stripes and The Raconteurs, but did not stop here on the tour supporting his highly acclaimed 2012 solo debut, "Blunderbuss." That tour featured two different bands -- one all male (The Buzzards) and one all female (The Peacocks) -- that varied from night to night.
The Detroit native, now in based in Nashville where he runs his own label, "Third Man Records," will release his second solo album, "Lazaretto." on June 10. Last week he announced that he will attempt to set a Guinness world record for "the world's fastest-released record" by recording and releasing the album's title track on the same day.
