Jack White‘s final acoustic show will stream live tonight on Tidal. The concert will be streamed in its entirety, and it will begin streaming at 8:30pm (Central standard time). White’s show will reportedly be available to stream one time after the live broadcast airs online. Last week, the rocker announced he is taking a long break from live performances. “After many years of performing in a multitude of configurations, Jack White is announcing that he will be taking a break from performing live for a long period of time,” White’s statement revealed. Each show date will be announced on the day of the performances, and tonight’s show will take place in Fargo (North Dakota). The tickets will cost fans $3, and the tickets will only be sold at the venue. White’s acoustic set will feature Lillie Mae Rische, Fats Kaplin, and Dominic Davis.
Jay Z is pulling out all the stops to ensure his music streaming service is successful. It has been reported that the rapper and Beyonce are recording a collaborative album, which will be exclusively released on Tidal. Today, Jay Z confirmed on Twitter that Jack White’s show will be streamed on his music and video streaming service. He also responded to those people criticizing his company. “Our actions will speak louder than words. We made Tidal to bring people the best experience,” Jay Z wrote on Twitter. The hip hop mogul also stated that Tidal is not just a music service. “We made Tidal for the fans. We have more than just music. We have video, exclusive concerts, tickets for events early, live sports,” he wrote.
Jay Z also addressed those musicians who claimed Tidal was only beneficial to wealthy musicians like Kanye West, Beyonce, Madonna, and others. The mogul said that independent artists who choose to work with Tidal, will keep 100 percent of their music. Since its relaunch last month, Tidal has dropped out of the iPhone Top 700 Downloads chart. Jay Z stated that he understands it will take some time before Tidal reaches its full potential, and he tweeted that it took Spotify nine years to be successful. Tidal is co-owned by Beyonce, Usher, and Jack White, and it continues to receive support from Daft Punk, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, and several other musicians.
