Guitarist Jack White is bringing his Supply Chain Issues tour to Prague’s Forum Karlín on July 5. This will be his first show in the Czech capital in eight years. The concert is being added to the previously announced itinerary and, aside from four shows in Germany, will be his only date in Central and Eastern Europe.

The tour will feature music from two new albums, “Fear of the Dawn,” coming out on April 8, and “Entering Heaven Alive,” scheduled for release on July 22. White also released the single “Taking Me Back” in October 2021. The hard-driving rock song was his first new studio material since the 2018 album “Boarding House Reach.”

Tickets for the Prague show go on sale to the general public on April 8 at 10 am, but Jack White fan club members can get them on April 5 and Live Nation club members on April 6.

Photos and recordings will be strictly forbidden. At White’s request, mobile phones will be stored in locked pouches, which each person will hold onto. People will be able to use phones only in designated areas outside the main hall.

White had a similar policy during his previous tour and said it was so people could concentrate on listening to the music. “We think you’ll enjoy looking up from your gadgets for a little while and experienc[ing] music and our shared love of it in person,” White’s management said in 2018. People who want to post on social media are invited to share official tour photos and video clips.

White was a founding member of the White Stripes, which was active between 1997 and 2011. He also has been in the Raconteurs, formed in 2005, and the Dead Weather, formed in 2009. The latter two groups are currently on hiatus.

His three solo album releases so far – “Blunderbuss” (2012), “Lazaretto” (2014), and “Boarding House Reach” (2018) – have all been certified gold and reached the number one spot on the U.S. record charts.

Throughout his career, White has won a dozen Grammy Awards either as a solo artist or part of a group. The White Stripes took the award for Best Rock Song for “Seven Nation Army” and Best Alternative Music Album for “Elephant,” both in 2004.

While he is mostly known for rock, he also worked with country music star Loretta Lynn, producing her album “Van Lear Rose,” and collaborated with Beyonce on the song “Don’t Hurt Yourself” from the album “Lemonade.”
