BOARDING HOUSE REACH, the acclaimed third solo album from Jack White, has debuted at #1 on this week’s SoundScan/Billboard 200 — his third consecutive chart-topping debut for a new solo release – and has the biggest sales week for a rock album in 2018, and second overall. The album also sits on top of the vinyl charts and is the #1 best selling rock album and alternative album. It’s the fourth-largest sales week for a vinyl album since Nielsen began tracking sales in 1991. In addition to its chart-topping achievements here in the United States, BOARDING HOUSE REACH has also debuted at #1 in Canada. The 12-time GRAMMY® Award-winner’s first all-new album in nearly four years, BOARDING HOUSE REACH is available physically and digitally now worldwide.

White and his powerful new touring outfit – Carla Azar on drums, Quincy McCrary and Neal Evans on keys, and Dominic Davis on bass guitar – will celebrate BOARDING HOUSE REACH with an appearance on Saturday Night Live on April 14, and then will embark on an epic world tour. The dates begin April 19 at Detroit, MI’s sold out Little Caesar Arena – White’s first-ever hometown arena show – and then continue through the summer with headline dates across North America, the United Kingdom, and Europe. The tour also features headline festival performances at Franklin, TN’s just-announced Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival as well as Lollapalooza, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Governors Ball Music Festival, Arroyo Seco Weekend, and Rock Werchter, among many others.
