A spokesperson for the wife of Jack White confirmed she has called off all dates of her upcoming tour, citing 'events beyond our control.'
Jack White's wife Karen Elson has canceled her upcoming European tour. The model-turned-singer, who married The White Stripes rocker in 2005, has been working towards relaunching her music career with White recently producing her debut record, "The Ghost Who Walks".
Elson was scheduled to kick off her tour in Berlin, Germany next week, May 23 and complete the trek in Glasgow, Scotland on May 28. But her spokesperson has now announced she has axed all of the shows, citing "events beyond our control". Ticket holders are able to get refunds from the point of purchase.
Karen Elson started her career in showbiz as a model. Her singing talent went unnoticed until 2005 when Uncut magazine included a CD of her personal recordings for its August issue. The next year, she made a duet with Cat Power in a tribute song for French musician Serge Gainsbour. Additionally, she has performed in a number of clubs with her cabaret troupe The Citizens Band.
