Run the Jewels may technically be opening for Jack White at the Saturdays of Coachella, but they'll also really be opening for him much sooner than that when his tour hits Madison Square Garden on January 30. If it seems weird that RTJ is opening for a rock band, it's worth considering that RTJ have Zack de la Rocha and Travis Barker on their newest record, and though Jack can seem like a rockist, he's openly a huge fan of Kanye, Jay Z and Daft Punk. In El-P's words, "When you get asked to open for jack white at MSG you say yes. its in the bible." Tickets are still available.

All dates for RTJ and Jack are listed below...
