Jack White extends his November UK and Ireland tour

Jack White has extended his full UK and Ireland tour, which will take place later this year.

The guitar virtuoso, who released his debut solo album Blunderbuss earlier this year, has added a second show at London Alexandra Palace on November 3, having previously announced a November 2 show at the venue.

The run of seven dates now begins at Dublin's O2 Arena on October 31 and runs until November 8 when White headlines Edinburgh's Usher Hall.

The tour also includes shows in Birmingham, Bridlington and Blackpool's Empress Ballroom, the venue where The White Stripes recorded their first live DVD Under Blackpool Lights.

Last month, Tom Jones told NME that he "would love" to do a full album with Jack White.

Jones collaborated with White for a one-off release on his Third Man Records label earlier this year, recording a version of Frankie Lane's track "Jezebel" and a cover of Howlin' Wolf's 'Evil' for the release.

Asked about working with White, the singer said: "Jack White had an idea for two songs 'Evil' and 'Jezabel', which is an old Frankie Laine song and he had a new arrangement for it. So he said to me 'Do you know these songs?' and I said 'Yes, I know both of them'."

He continued: "I was in Nashville at the time so we got together and we did the two songs. I'd love to do an album with Jack White in the future."

Jack White will play:

O2 Arena Dublin (October 31)
London Alexandra Palace (November 2, 3)
Bridlington Spa (4)
Blackpool Empress Ballroom (6)
O2 Academy Birmingham (7)
Edinburgh Usher Hall (8)
