JACK WHITE (US)
Friday 06.07.12 - 22:30 - Orange
The White Stripes helped kick-start rock again a little over 10 years ago. With inspiration from particularly blues and garage rock, Jack White showed us all how much magic you can produce with vocals, guitar and a drum rhythm from the missus.
Having expanded his repertoire with the super rock groups The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather, Jack White now takes the stage himself, and the first live shows reveal an artist at the peak of his career. Ready with songs from the new solo album, Blunderbuss, and picks from the rich back catalogue.
With a bigger band, the old songs are given a new wealth and weight. The new songs are potent rock noir, full of more than 50 years of music history.
With Jack White, the reawakening of the classic rock tradition continues.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
