New York - Jack White will kick off the release of his first solo album with a concert streamed live online, to be directed by Gary Oldman.
The show will be the first instalment in the third season of American Express' Unstaged series, which pairs top musical acts with renowned filmmakers. White's concert at New York's Webster Hall will be streamed live on 27 April at 21:00 on VEVO, free of charge.
A few days prior, on April 24, White will release Blunderbuss, the first solo album from the former White Stripe.
The Unstaged series has drawn more than 70 million streams for performances from Arcade Fire, Coldplay, Mary J Blige and others.
Though best known for his acting, Oldman directed the critically-acclaimed 1997 film Nil by Mouth.
