Jack White Kicks Off ‘American Express Unstaged’

With his debut solo album – Blunderbuss - hitting stores in late April, Jack White recently helped launch this year’s American Express Unstaged series with a show at New York City’s Webster Hall.

Directed by actor/director Gary Oldman, the event was live-streamed via White’s VEVO channel on YouTube.

During the performance, White pulled out tracks from Blunderbuss, including the lead single, “Sixteen Saltines,” while mixing in a few White Stripes gems, such as “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground.”

Watch White rock both of those tunes in the videos below:
