Jack White Headlines Lollapalooza 2012

Jack White Hangout Music Festival Alabama 2012

Jack White is a busy man these days! Not only does he run his own label (Third Man Records), he plays in a slew of bands including the Raconteurs, and formerly the White Stripes, along with taking the production helm for several artists.  He is also on an extensive tour this summer including stops at the Hangout Music Festival and Lollapalooza in Chicago.

White’s current album, Blunderbuss, was released on April 24th on Third Man Records/Columbia Records and has already sold 137,554 copies domestically, debuting at #1 on the U.S. albums chart. It’s also experiences great success by hitting the #1 spot in the UK, Canada,  and Switzerland. If that weren’t impressive enough, Blunderbuss is in the running for the world record of  “the fastest named album in history.” This is pending at the moment, but since we are talking about world records, Third Man Records announced that Jack White has again decided to take on the challenge of getting into the Guinness Book of World Records this time for “most metaphors used in a single concert.”  Jack will continue to attempt this record for the remainder of this summer tour dates.  He also asks for fans not to interfere with his attempts during the shows, as it may led to disqualification.

Jack White will be playing Lollapalooza on Sunday August 5th. Sunday passes are still available!
