Looks like Jack White is set to turn downtown Minneapolis’ newest concert venue into a ... seven nation Armory.

(Stop wincing. You wish you’d thought of that. Jealousy is ugly.)

The former White Stripe, Raconteur, and Dead Weather-er will come stomping into town on August 6 at the newly reopened Armory. General admission tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 26, at 10 a.m. for $69.50 via Ticketmaster and the Armory Box Office, but there are presale options for fans available.

White, who was last in these parts for the first show of Chris Thile's revamped Prairie Home Companion in 2016, will be touring behind a new album with the very on-brand title Boarding House Reach, which he’ll release on March 23. For a taste of what to expect, here’s the first single, “Connected by Love.”

In addition to three big Super Bowl week shows—Mura Masa and Machine Gun Kelly, Jennifer Lopez, and P. Diddy and DJ Khaled’s “Player’s Ball”—the Armory is hosting Tech9ine, Steve Aoki and Desiigner, and Judas Priest so far in 2018. We had the scoop on what the venue has to offer last August.
