Alabama Shakes

Alabama Shakes, who like Jack White were down at SXSW last week, will be opening for him at both of the just-announced Roseland Ballroom shows, and four other shows too. The band writes:

"We are beyond ecstatic to announce that we will be opening 6 shows for Jack White. May 15/16 in Nashville at the Ryman, May 19 in Asheville at the Orange Peel, May 21/22 in New York City at the Roseland Ballroom and May 24th in Detroit at the Scottish Rite Theater. Tickets go on sale on Friday. So fired up for these dates."
Tickets to the shows are now on Ticketmaster and go on general sale Friday, 3/23, at 1pm.

@6:07 Um yeah? That was 9 years ago and he is way more famous now. So your point is?

That is expensive, when the White Stripes played there last year it was only 50 dollars and Meg White has a big ass.

13 dollar TM service charge. For a Roseland show. Really.

What is this race gimmick band? we don't need another sharon jones

The chick would be WAY more impressive playing solo because that backing band makes her a lot less appealing. I hate when jazz banders make good!

Look at that retarded backdrop.

SXSW sucked this year... pretty bad

6:07 here...my point is 2003 White Stripes is two people for $30= $15 a member...2012 Jack White $60 for 1 guy... that is a 4 times increase in my book in 9 years...what else increased by 4 times? Bread isn't $8 a loaf is it?

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 7:50 AM

The demand for bread has not gone up. The demand for Jack White has skyrocketed.

More jazzbo shit for white people to like. The white newspaper critics can't wait to line up and flog this shit.

7:54 the Wheat Stripes!

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 8:49 AM

Umm I think demand for Jack White went down! Stripes are still way more popular than Jack solo will ever be...this loaf should be $1!

The last time people heard White Stripes songs live in New York was 5 years ago. There will definitely be demand.

How much do you think the band paid for this?

Jack goes to sleep each night hoping he'll wake up & actually be one dem real, authentic southerners. Damn it, Detroit! Ah!

I saw the White Stripes once in Canada for free & they played this one distorted note after I drove 2 hours to see them. I was so honored. It was, like, so cool and avant-garde.

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 1:37 PM

Yep 137pm! It was easy to get tickets for both nights! And saved ticketmaster fees!

1:19: I saw that guy in union Square wearing his white stripes too! Awesome display!

1:49 - Did you have to pay for a premium membership to his fan club?

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 2:49 PM

remember when the white stripes weren't broken up and people didn't care as much?

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2012 3:24 PM

No, I don't remember that, 3:24. It's amazing how indifference can sell 17000 seats at MSG.

I didn't even see the presale tickets go on. Welp there's always friday.

If ticketmaster looks for tickets but doesn't find any does that mean I should keep trying or is it pointless?
