Jack White is coming back to Tulsa, and he’s bringing company.

White, who has a residence in Tulsa and last year performed the first rock concert at ONEOK Field, is touring with The Raconteurs in support of a new album. The tour will bring The Raconteurs to Cain’s Ballroom for Oct. 13 and 14 shows.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, April 12, at cainsballroom.com. Tickets are $69, plus fees, in advance and $75, plus fees, the day of the show. Every online ticket purchase comes with one physical copy of The Raconteurs’ upcoming album (“Help Us Stranger”).

During a 2018 interview with the Tulsa World, White said Cain’s Ballroom is one of his favorite places to play in the world — if not “the” favorite.

“The first day I came into town, just looking at it, I was really upset that nobody had ever told me about Tulsa,” he said.

“I walked into Cain’s Ballroom, and I basically almost fired my booking agent the moment I walked into that room. Why do I not know about this place? Why have I never been booked here? Why have you never even mentioned this? It was one of the most beautiful places I had ever seen. And the vibe when we played the show, it was just incredible.”

White’s mates in The Raconteurs are Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler. The release date for the new album is June 21 via Third Man Records.

Third Man Records Vault members will have access to the first pre-sale starting at 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 9, through 10 p.m. Thursday, April 11. Sign up for Vault Package #40, which features an exclusive limited-edition version of the new album on electric green/black/copper swirled vinyl and Vault-only lenticular cover art, and to gain ticket pre-sale access.

American Express card members can purchase tickets in select markets before the public beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday, April 10, through 10 p.m. Thursday, April 11. For tickets and more information on all tour dates, visit theraconteurs.com/tour.

The new album is The Raconteurs’ third studio album and first in more than a decade.
