Jack White will kick off the release of his first solo album with a concert streamed live online next weekend, to be directed by actor and film-maker Gary Oldman.

The show will be the first instalment in the third season of a series called Unstaged, which pairs top musical acts with big name film-makers.

White's concert at New York's Webster Hall will be streamed live on Vevo on April 27 (New York time), which translates to 1pm on Saturday, April 28, here.

A few days prior, on April 24, White will release Blunderbuss, the first solo album from the former White Stripe.

So far the Unstaged series has drawn more than 70 million streams for performances from Arcade Fire, Coldplay, and Mary J. Blige among others.

Though best known for his acting, Oldman directed the critically acclaimed 1997 film Nil by Mouth.
