Governors Ball also marks the first major solo performance for Jack White since he wrapped touring in support of his 2014 album, Lazaretto. The rocker has reportedly been working on a new LP, though he has yet to announce a release date or title. He recently shared a strange new musical collage and video titled, “Servings and Portions From My Boarding House Ranch.” Governors Ball also marks a major show for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who performed their first concert in four years last October to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Fever to Tell.
