Wanda Jackson Adds US Dates to "The Party Ain't Over" Tour
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Wanda Jackson has added further live dates following her upcoming sold-out New York City and Los Angeles record release shows.
Jackson has added a special shortened set in Nashville at the Ryman Auditorium for the Grand Ole Opry on January 15, as part of a show with Del McCoury and Vince Gill, as well as a second night at Los Angeles’s El Rey Theatre on January 24 with The Third Man House Band featuring Jack White on guitar, while the newly announced February tour dates will take her back through New York as well as to Philadelphia, Boston, DC, and Dallas, following her previously announced European tour. Tickets for the additional Los Angeles show will be available for Third Man Record’s Vault subscribers starting this Friday, January 7, at 10 AM PST, and for the general public on Saturday, January 8, at 10 AM PST. You can see the list of dates below and visit nonesuch.com/on-tour for more information and available ticket links.
This string of live shows will be Jackson’s first following the release of the highly anticipated new album The Party Aint Over, produced by Jack White and released on Third Man and Nonesuch Records on January 25. You can pre-order the album now on vinyl and CD in the Nonesuch Store. The first 250 pre-orders include an exclusive, limited-edition poster autographed by Jackson. Meanwhile, you can catch a glimpse inside the limited-edition vinyl release and marvel at its unique fuchsia-colored vinyl and greeting-card gatefold (which plays the album's opening track, "Shakin' All Over") in a video from Third Man featuring Jack White, here:
With a remarkable career that began in 1955, Jackson, credited with being the first woman to ever record a rock and roll song—“Let’s Have a Party” in 1958—was convinced by her friend Elvis Presley to cross over from country to rock and rockabilly music. Now known around the globe as “The Queen of Rock” and “The First Lady of Rockabilly,” Jackson recently performed on the BBC’s Special New Year’s Eve “Hootenanny” Jools Holland Show, providing the United Kingdom with their very first song of 2011, a rollicking version of album track “Rip It Up,” as well as a rendition of Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good.”
Jackson is scheduled to perform with Jack White & The Third Man House Band on The Late Show with David Letterman on CBS on January 20 and Conan on TBS on January 25.
