Wanda Jackson Announces More US Shows + TV performances with Jack White And The Third Man House Band!

Wanda Jackson Announces US Tour Dates in February

Live Shows Planned To Follow Release Of New Jack White-Produced Album The Party Ain’t Over

Rock and Roll Hall Of Famer Wanda Jackson has added further live dates to her sold-out New York City and Los Angeles record release shows. Jackson has added a special shortened set in Nashville at the Ryman Auditorium for the Grand Ole Opry on January 15th, as part of a show with Del McCoury and Vince Gill, as well as a second night at Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre on January 24th with The Third Man House Band featuring Jack White on guitar, while the newly announced February tour dates will take her back through New York as well as to Philadelphia, Boston, DC and Dallas.  Tickets for the additional Los Angeles show will be available for Third Man Record’s Vault subscribers starting Friday, January 7th at 10 am PST, and for the general public on Saturday, January 8th at 10 am PST. This string of live shows will be Jackson’s first stateside performances following the release of the highly anticipated new album The Party Ain’t Over – produced by Jack White and released on Third Man and Nonesuch Records on January 25th. With a remarkable career that began in 1955, Jackson, credited with being the first woman to ever record a rock and roll song – “Let’s Have a Party” in 1958 – was convinced by her friend Elvis Presley to cross over from country to rock and rockabilly music. Now known around the globe as “The Queen Of Rock-A-Billy” and “The First Lady Of Rock N Roll,” Jackson recently performed on the BBC’s Special New Year’s Eve “Hootenanny” Jools Holland Show, providing the United Kingdom with their very first song of 2011, a rollicking version of album track “Rip It Up,” as well as a rendition of Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good.” Jackson is scheduled to perform with Jack White & The Third Man House Band on The Late Show With David Letterman on CBS on January 20th and Conan on TBS on January 25thThe Party Ain’t Over was recorded in Nashville at Jack White’s studio, where he brought together a formidable band, including himself, Jack Lawrence (The Dead Weather/Raconteurs), Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), Patrick Keeler (Raconteurs), Ashley Monroe, Jackson Smith and Karen Elson, to name a few, and hand picked the songs – 11 tracks dating in origin from the early 1900’s to 2007.  The result: a retro modern collection of music that showcases Wanda, now in her seventh decade and sounding as charismatic as ever.  Wanda Jackson’s new single, a wickedly energetic cover of Bob Dylan’s “Thunder On The Mountain”, is out now.
