Kansas City band scores four opening dates on Jack White tour

The Kansas City band Radkey will open four shows on Jack White's upcoming tour. The band of three brothers — Dee, Isaiah and Solomon Radke — will open for White from May 30 to June 9 in Washington, D.C.; Toronto; Rochester, N.Y.; and Lewiston, N.Y., a town north of Buffalo.

Radkey started in St. Joseph, Mo., in 2010. The band has since moved to Kansas City and released two full-length albums and two EPs.

Since January, the band has been one of seven musical acts featured in a MasterCard commercial that celebrates people who have "overcome adversity to pursue their musical passions."

White announced his tour on Jan. 16. It includes an April 24 stop at the Providence Medical Center Amphitheater in Bonner Springs. Mattiel will open that show. Tickets are on sale now. It's a 'no cell phone' tour': Attendees will be required to lock away their phones during the show.
