Jack White will perform at an upcoming Bernie Sanders rally

The White Stripes leading man Jack White has recently confirmed that he will be supporting Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, as he revealed he will perform at a rally for the White House hopeful.

White will join Sanders, the Vermont Senator, as well as U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib during a rally on October 27th in White’s hometown of Detroit, Michigan. The singer has made the motor city his musical Mecca and has been a keen supporter of the city’s recent resurgence after bankruptcy.

Jack White will take to the stage to perform a live set before joining Sanders, Tlaib, and other local leaders and activists in a demonstration for “economic, environmental and racial justice,” according to a press release.

The event will take place inside the grounds of Detroit’s Cass Technical High School, the school White attended when he was a young boy. If you’re in the area, the doors open at 3:30pm and you can RSVP here. We’re just hoping that White drops a banger or two.
