THANK YOU JACK!

You are not only a ROCK LEGEND...but a FUNK KING as well. Glorious show from start to finish. Loved the variety and energy. AMAZING band with you as well. Unforgettable night in a beautiful theater Can't wait till the next time Jack!

5.0 star rating Blaine from Brooklyn, New York

NOW THAT WAS A SHOW!

I've seen this incredible artist in nearly incarnation he's been in...the White Stripes, Raconteurs, the Dead Weather, and twice solo. This was very likely my favorite show of them all. Something about his energy, he seemed overjoyed to be there with us, and this exquisite theatre...it just all came together to create a feeling of immersion and transcendence. I felt like I was in another era...with not one phone in sight. Wow...what a difference no-phones make! One of the greatest living artists alive and he was ON FIRE with his INCREDIBLE band! The audience was with him all the way, feeling off of each other throughout the night. Amazing and unforgettable. His new album is really benefited by seeing live. It was like the funkiest of funk combined with the top tier of rock n roll. Jack...THANK YOU!

JACK WHITE VANCOUVER, AUG. 12TH

I haven't been to a concert in years because of my location. Ive always loved Jack Whites music and everyone knows it. My Son bought tickets for us both and I made the 5 hour drive from Vernon. We were within 30 feet of the front middle of the stage. I can die HAPPY. Mr. White was born to play music and in the process make people have a great time. His smile at the end of the concert was so genuine and full of love, as the audience had for him. Thank you Jack white.

5.0 star rating Matt from Minneapolis, Minnesota

WOW!!

Show was fantastic, crowd a little weak, a lot of standing around. Had a little sound issu e from where we were at but only during first song, adjustments must have been made. Incredible band, and Jack is a guitar God!!

5.0 star rating Amanda from Minneapolis, Minnesota

AMAZING

It was the best show I have been to in a long time. He was into it and the crowd was too which set the stage for an unbelievably awesome performance. I just LOVE him. He played a great mix of his solo material, White Stripes, and even threw in some Raconteurs and Deadweather. All his greatest hits and a really strong encore ending with 7 Nation Army.

5.0 star rating PAUL from Toronto, Ontario

AWESOME IN TORONTO

Jack was sensational on Saturday. Second time I have seen him. This show would be on my list of favourite of all time--seen tons of bands. Jack is an amazing musician and his band were amazing. I even enjoyed the openning act--fun!!! Jack is also an amazing lyricist too...doesn't get enough credit for that. I also love the lithographs he sells at the shows. Beautiful numbered works of art. Thanks Jack!!!

5.0 star rating Jeff from Saint Thomas, Ontario

NOBODY BETTER!!! JACK IS THE MAN!!!

JACK ROCKED TORONTO!!! For those of you expecting jack to play a certain song - stay home. Honestly - his new album is nothing compared to anything he has done in the past - everyone i talked to at the concert agreed with me. However he has over 100 songs I would have loved to have heard - unfortunately he can't play them all. If anyone could - i am sure he could though - he looked like he could have played for 8 hours straight!!! Don't try to get the set list prior to the show...just show up expecting Jack to be Jack and you will never be disappointed. I was pleasantly surprised by 6 or more songs he did play!!! Of course I would have loved to hear, Take, Take, Take, Effect and Cause, Blue Orchid, Jolene, or anything else proving his fondness for red head girls, etc...I could go on forever. Others dissing how he went from song to song...I have never seen anything better. I give it an 11 out of 5!!! If there is an artist out there any better please let me know now!

JACK WHITE THE BEST

I am 65 years old and have see hundreds of bands from THE Band to the Chili Peppers. This had to be my number 1 concert.

5.0 star rating Amanda from Austin, Texas

JACK WHITE DESERVES BETTER

Jack White and the musicians that play with him are phenomenal. Real music for the sake of music. The kind of music that you feel on the atomic level. He has a plethora of music to offer, and there just wasn't enough time because of the sound ordinance. We got put to bed early. Can't wait to see him again. Loved that we had to lock our phones up and be engaged. Hey Austin. Let's get our butts moving at concerts again! There was a lot of standing around. Don't be too cool to have a good time! It's a concert! Rock out! You just saw some of the best musicians of our time live!

FANTASTIC SHOW IN OMAHA

I loved the show in Omaha and thought it was a diverse setlist of songs from a vast catalog of choices. For those disappointed he chose to skip a few "hits"... you missed a bad-ass forest for a couple trees. I feel a little sorry for you.

JACK WHITE UNDERSTANDS MUSIC AS LIFEFORCE IN ANTI DIGITAL FORMAT AND THE ART OF BLUES PUNK PSYCHOSURF STYLES ROOTED THROUGH ANALOG REELTAPED RECORDING My belief is protools and digital effects take all the soul of music and flush it down the drain of souless musical departure . ....I LOVE HIM AND AM CURRENTLY STUDING ALL HE HAS ARTISTICLY CLOCKED OUT TO US LITTLE LIKE MINDED SOULS .HE INSPIRES A PART OF MY SOUL THE SPARKS ARE NOW A RAGE OF CREATIVE FIRE ...piano guitar vocals .

IF YOU ARE GOING TO PLAY STEVIE RAY VAUGHN IN TX, YOU BETTER BRING IT! JACK DELIVERED!

I was absolutely thrilled by the performance in Irving Tx 5/23/22 and feel Jack White is the best performing artist. Superbly talented band. Inspiring. The stage and visual experience was amazing. Closeups on Jack's left hand reveal he is a magician. I've seen Racounteurs (exceptional), but this was even better. Played so many favorites from his incredible catalog. Where ever you are, you have to get to one of his shows.

5.0 star rating Karen from Los Angeles, California

IT'S WORTH IT

Jack White is in great form. If you missed him in LA, catch him in another city on this tour. His genius burns brighter than ever!

5.0 star rating Shelly Nelson from Portland, Oregon

JACK WHITE WOWS!

The evening with Jack White and Backseat Lover was a fun, exciting, musical adventure. The music roared back at an excited crowd and filled the Moda Center with musical exuberance. I felt mesmerized by the visual art on the screen and taken on an astral journey keeping pace with the deep thrum of the music. Backseat Lover was a joyful rollercoaster of rhythm that I thoroughly enjoyed.

5.0 star rating from Denver, Colorado

LOVED IT

I loved the concert - loved the Dead Weather song, the Raconteurs, his new stuff is fantastic. It was loud but it's Jack White.

5.0 star rating T.J. from Sioux City, Iowa

LINCOLN, NE PINEWOOD BOWL

Jack and his crew went all out for this one. It was super hot and humid but it didn't stop him from rockin out hard. Pleased the crowd with some older tunes and played a lot of his newer solo stuff. The venue was neat, well managed, and sounded awesome!

5.0 star rating Kevin B. from Indianapolis, Indiana

INDY SHOW

Just insanely good. Jack is an absolute FILTHY guitarist and we were impressed by his ability on the piano as well. Such a "gives what he gets" artist and the more we gave the more he just wailed on that guitar. And you have to expect hearing new material; that's how live shows go and how artists grow. He hit the plenty of favorites and the newer material we weren't as familiar with ROCKED and the instrumentation/interaction with the band was so fun to watch. The guy on drums was ridiculously talented. Jack is the best guitarist I have ever seen live and would for sure be on my Mt. Rushmore of greatest of all time; just nobody does it like him. He took Prince's advice well: "Don't ever let anyone tell you how to play your guitar, Jack." Will see him again for sure next time he is near here; we were so amped afterwards it made going to sleep and getting up for work today very difficult! Thanks for coming Jack; you guys riled up 'Nap town on a Wednesday like I've never seen!

5.0 star rating Karey from Toronto, Ontario

NO DISAPPOINTMENTS TONIGHT

Overall it was a heartfelt performance with a mix of newer, more challenging works and classic crowd pleasers ... the balance a good artist knows how to deliver to their audience. This performance appeared carefully crafted but also spontaneous in parts. There were an unusual number of guitar solos, played with tremendous energy. Like he's been unleashed after the pandemic and he and his band are playing their instruments to pieces. A marvelous sight, sound, and feeling. He definitely gets across that he loves his work. Great venue.

5.0 star rating Karen Perez from Toronto, Ontario

EPIC SHOW

I saw Jack last night at Budweiser stage in Toronto. One of the best concerts I have seen in a really long time. It so intimate. I could not take my eyes off of him. The band was so tight. Just incredible

5.0 star rating Dana Gr. from Buffalo, New York

INCREDIBLE. ENERGY OF THE VENUE SUCKED BUT I FELT HIS SHOW WAS SPOT ON AND RIGHT ON. EVEN BETTER LIVE.

Doubtful that Mr. White or anyone from his team will read this so this is specifically for fans only. I've been a fan of Jack and Meg for a very long time probably around their inception-ish like I guess a lot of fans proclaim. And I have always admired the expression. Okay all of the you know fawning fan stuff aside, I don't know if it was the concert or just the whole day but I reconnected with my husband and even though he's not the same fan of Jack White as I am he went out of his way to make sure that we could go. He took me to Niagara falls. It was just an amazing day. And I will always remember it. I think that was one of the most amazing concerts I've been to. I've been to a lot. But this time it was a meaningful experience. Because this time around I was with someone that I wanted to share that experience with. Anyway big fan. Really really really enjoyed the show. Thank you

JACK WHITE - CALGARY, NOVEMBER 3, 2018

What a show. I truly felt connected to Jack, his band mates, and the entire audience (phone free show). Getting to experience such an extraordinary performer at a small venue like the Stampede Corral was such a treat. It left me feeling like Jack was there exclusively to entertain me and my friends. What a show indeed. General Admission Floor tickets were $89.00 and I was less than 10 feet away from Jack. Phenomenal! Gave 4 star rating as when Jack spoke it was hard to hear what he was saying...but had no problem hearing the music!! Thank you Jack White for the great night!

4.0 star rating M, White from Seattle, Washington

JACK WHITE SURPRISE

I pre- funked by listening to Jack White's newest solo album and almost sold my tickets. So glad I went anyway. What a fantastic rock show!. They rocked from start to finish and the drummer was amazing. You know its a good show when you don't even mind the WAMU theater. I would see him next time comes within 3 states of me again!

4.0 star rating Biz from Vancouver, British Columbia

WHO'S WITH YOU?!I'M WITH YOU, JACK!

I love this guy:genius guitarist (5 different guitars tonight, maybe 6), amazing voice, and delicious smile;) His opening act was a nice try but hard to get into. His band members were all obviously super talented and connected on stage, but the female drummer was INSANE! She's got it going on and anchors the sound. The set was whatever he wanted to play and good on him-and he had a good mix of his new stuff with old. I just wish he would chat up the audience a bit more because he's got a cool personality and i'd love to hear him think out loud. Thank you, Jack, for coming to Vancouver yet again! We're a bit of a polite crowd of Canadians but don't let it fool you- we love love love you!

4.0 star rating from Omaha, Nebraska

LEFT YOU HANGING

Fantastic performance for what it was but a weak encore for what EVERYONE exepected and wanted, which was more White Stripes . To top it off it was unforgivable that he skipped Seven Nation Army. The new songs were great live but felt self indulgent. Congrats, Mr. White, on making this concert all about you and very little about your fans.

4.0 star rating Samantha from Atlanta, Georgia

AMAZING PERFORMANCE BUT...

The show was fantastic. Jack White and the band absolutely do not disappoint. However, the process of getting in made me want to never go to another concert. You have to have your phone but you can't have your phone. You must have credit card no cash but you cannot bring in a bag big enough to carry your phone and wallet. The process was confusing , the tabernacle out door staff were incredibly rude. By the time we got in we were completely frustrated.

4.0 star rating Marie ;!)) from Toronto, Ontario

JACK WHITE IN TORONTO!! BUDWEISER STAGE

Absolute love Jack!! Forth time seeing him. I bought tickets last minute as I am not loving his new album but I knew I had to go and I am glad that I did!! The only disappointment was I could barely hear Jack singing. All I heard was the drums and guitar which I love but would have liked to hear him a little more clearly. Did anyone else have this issue?? Still happy I went

3.0 star rating Steve from San Francisco, California

NO PHONES -- YES! BUT GET A BETTER SOUND SYSTEM OR VENUE

I'm old enough to remember concerts without cell phones, and let me tell you they were WAY better, more fun, more involving. People who can't put down their cell phones really depress me. What a miserable, addicted life. So, thanks Jack White for making this a cell phone-free event. Fantastic. The one big drawback to the show was poor, muddled sound quality, especially for the vocals. Partly it's the fault of the venue -- a vast high school gym / auditorium space that kills good sound. But it's also the fault of the mix. Full, powerful sound is great, and you expect some distortion from Jack White. Fine. But if you bury the lyrics, you lose all the subtlety and charm of, say, "Waiting for the Doorbell," and you fail to make an emotional connection with your fans. Oh well. I'll avoid the civic auditorium from now on (too bad it's named for the great rock promoter Bill Graham). Loved seeing Jack White years ago at the Greek theater outdoors in Berkeley. Staff were very friendly.

3.0 star rating Another Old Hippie from Portland, Oregon

AWFUL SOUND

Jack and the band (Carla is freaking amazing!) were fine, but this was the WORST sound I've ever heard at a concert, and I've been to hundreds of them. Sound came from above our seats - which suggests the venue was putting the band's output through the same tinny speakers they use to announce hockey penalties - and it was muddy and/or (unintentionally) distorted. Also, I've got no problem with LOUD, but the lead vocals were WAY TOO LOUD for the rest of the mix, so they drowned out virtually every other instrument except the drums. I hardly heard a note from either of the two keyboards or the bass all night. And the volume made the vocals distort, too - even when they weren't supposed to. Clearly the (lack of) sound quality affected the crowd - they never got into the music. About 60% through his set, Jack asked, "You still with me, Portland?" Guess he wanted to know because everyone was just standing / sitting around. Will never attend another show at this venue.

3.0 star rating Disappointed from Des Moines from Des Moines

IT WAS REALLY GOOD, BUT.....

i love artists that don't stick to the same setlist every night....and have no problem missing a few old hits....but damn, Jack....you left out some big ones. I don't think I'm alone here in feeling disappointed each time he started a song with a big, long open chord...that didn't lead into Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground. For somebody who feeds off the energy of his audience....you gotta give us a little something sometimes. Ball and a Biscuit would have gone a LONG way towards the energy of the crowd, which never got much louder than polite applause all night.

3.0 star rating Grayhairedfreak from Omaha, Nebraska

DON'T FORGET WHO PAYS THE BILLS, JACK.

I agree with BlastinB's review. For an artist of White's stature to do 90 minutes max, no 7NA, Ball & Biscuit or Icky Thump, and heavily focus on material from his hot mess new album was an injustice to the Omaha crowd. Parts of the show were very good (Over and Over, Sixteen Saltines, Steady as She Goes), just incomplete. We got 4 fewer songs than any tour date so far and the only show without 7NA. Opener was bad, pre-show music was bad. Maybe he spent too much time with the Storm Chasers...

3.0 star rating from Omaha, Nebraska

DON'T FORGET WHO THE ARTIST IS

I think you were missing something if you expected an artist to get up on stage and play the same old stuff just to appease a certain fan base. To do so would short change the artist and the world at large of having the opportunity to grow and experience something new. He's not with White Stripes any more! As much as I loved the White Stripes, i heartily enjoy jack's new album. It is confusing and a bit messy in places and off the wall, but boy is it fun! So I was set to be blown away by a live performance along the same vein. But I was disappointed beyond words with the venue. It was all wrong. The sound quality was abhorrent, and to make up for the lack of quality, quantity was substituted (as in, the volume was jacked up to the rafters). You can chalk it up to the fact that I have never seen a musical performance in an arena and didn't know what to expect; nonetheless, I will stick with places like the Slowdown and the Waiting Room to get my live music fix.

SOUND QUALITY WAS SUBPAR

I love Jack white and have for years. However this was my first time seeing him live. The lights, graphics, performances were awesome, totally killer. But the sound was too distorted that when he spoke I couldn't understand a word he said. Luckily I'm a huge fan so I know all the lyrics, so I knew what he was singing but my son, who is 30 and knows only a couple songs, said he had no clue what Jack was singing. It was too loud where it distorted the sound. I still love Jack, old and new music, but what a shame.

3.0 star rating Alex from Toronto, Ontario

WHOEVER MIXED THE SOUND SHOULD BE FIRED

I love Jack white and was so excited to see july talk open for him - until it became hours of ear piercing nose that was hard to even decipher as music. Left half way through as the noise was giving all of us really bad headaches, the people who unlocked our phones at the door said they had never seen this many people leave because of sound before. Disappointed bc i know it would have been a great show had it been mixed better. No wonder they didn’t allow any recordings

1.0 star rating Mike from Tulsa, Oklahoma

MOST UNDERWHELMING CONCERT I'VE BEEN TO.

I guess I USED to love Jack White but this concert fixed that. The first half felt like a garage jam session, not a paid concert. When the musicians left the stage I've NEVER seen so many people leave a performance at this point. Usually there is a demand for an encore. Not this time. I read that Jack doesn't use a set list. Maybe he should try that. First concert I've attended where the artist sounded better recorded than live. Honestly, I still don't even know who the opening act was. They never said, which is OK because they were awful, but still....overall a waste of an evening.

1.0 star rating Tim Emineth from Portland, Oregon

WHY SO LOUD

Bought my tickets the first day they went on sale. Got pretty good seats for 60 dollars, which I thought was a good deal. Was looking forward to the show, very excited and happy to be going. But when he came on it was so loud that even though I had planed ahead and brought ear plugs, I just couldn't handle it. I am 60 years young and will always go to see live music but at what price, do I have to go deaf. I already am heard of hearing because of past concerts when I was younger and didn't know better and stood in front of the speakers so we could get closer. sorry you drove me away Jack I was looking forward to it

1.0 star rating BlastinB from Detroit, Michigan

TERRIBLE ALL THE WAY AROUND

Let me just say I'm a big fan of Jack White. That's said, that was the weakest showing of him that I've ever experienced and I've seen him five other times... from the strange opening bands and techno house DJ something played too 1/3 Full Arena left the sound very echoing and cavernous. Everything doused in blue and aimed at the audience reminded me of those horrible Christmas lights that give you a headache as you drive by... I guess I'm a fan of Jack White of the past and will not spend one more dollar to watch someone indulge their own self with experimental rap and Jazz when his fan base was built on blues rock and roll... Remember how you got to where you think you are I suppose what the fans have a little fun because that show to me personally was excruciating

1.0 star rating Greg Doug Smith from Nashville, Tennessee

FAR, FAR TOO LOUD FOR JACK'S SET

I love Jack White's music (and his overall vibe and personality too) and was really looking forward to this concert, but I'm sorry to say that it was actually ruined by being too loud. I don't mean a bit louder than you might like, but ear-bleedingly loud. This wasn't so at all for the first two bands, so I don't understand why it Jack's set was like this. But it was like they didn't do a sound check to ensure the volume was at a tolerable level. Truly a terrible pity, because it literally ruined the show for me (and my girlfriend too). I left mystified at how such a brilliant musician and seasoned pro could have made such a fundamental mistake.

1.0 star rating Cc from Toronto, Ontario

COME ON JACK..

Please fire your sound people. Worst concert I have seen in a while and I love Jack White. It was so loud you could hardly tell what song he was playing. We left after the 3rd song. Truly disappointing.

WHAT’S WITH THE TERRIBLE DISTORTED SOUND ???

I went to see Jack White, and to make a long story short, unless you were sticking your fingers in your ears you couldn’t make out anything he was playing it was truly awful ! I go to about 30 concerts a year. This was the worst sound “quality” ever ! Why ?
