Jack White celebrates the release of his new album, Lazaretto, with a live video webcast from the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles.

The concert comes a day after White's interview and performance on NBC's Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, in which White described the added features on the new Lazaretto vinyl to a flabbergasted Fallon. White followed up the interview with a performance of the album's title track that was so energized, White accidentally struck himself in the side of the head with the headstock of his own guitar; thankfully, he appeared unshaken by the blow.

White's new solo album is a bold, shape-shifting collection of eclectic rock songs that rank among White's wildest and most imaginative efforts. He'll showcase much of the record in this full concert from Los Angeles, presented here as a live video webcast.

Lazaretto is also The Current's CD of the Week; be sure to read David Safar's review.

The performance will begin streaming via NPR Music at approximately 11:45 p.m. CDT on Tuesday, June 10.

NPR Music is also hosting this live chatroom about the concert; expect activity to begin in the chatroom as we draw closer to the concert's start time:
