Returning home for a two-night set of shows in Detroit, Jack White pulled a surprising move on the crowd, abruptly leaving the stage after merely eight songs.
According to Consequence of Sound, Jack wasn't too happy with the response he got from the audience, storming off stage, just to return for an epic 22-song encore.
"I know as Detroiters you can overcome comfortable seating and beautiful lighting to make something as real as possible," he said upon returning. "We're all together now. This isn’t 'Gone With the Wind' in the 1930s, all right?"
Despite rocking out the additional tunes (10 tracks for the first encore and 12 more for the second), White isn't planning a return any time soon.
"I told myself I'd only play here one time. This'll be the last time I play the Fox Theatre. It was a final piece of the puzzle - I saved it for a long time." The second concert of the set will be performed at the Masonic Temple.
According to the same source, certain concert-goers have cited technical difficulties as the real reason behind the whole situation, pointing out that the crowd response wasn't as bad as the media made it seem. In case you were among the lucky 5,000, make sure to share your thoughts in the comments.
