You never know what you’re going to get with Jack White, it seems. Touring with two different bands, playing songs from a variety of his bands throughout his career, the sheer bulk and oddity of his output, the way he scuffled with the US Air Force… While off promoting his new solo album Blunderbuss, Jack White had an incident in New York City involving his temper. While on stage at the prestigious Radio City Music Hall, the fiery former White Stripes singer got into it with a fan using a cell phone to record video, lit into the crowd for their lack of enthusiasm, then stormed off stage. Jack White played only 45 minutes before ending a New York concert, leaving angry fans in his wake.
“Jesus Christ, is this an NPR convention?” spat White between songs at one point.
Apparently, NPR conventions get pretty angry. After White thanked the crowd and left the stage and his roadies came out to clear equipment, angry fans started booing, yelling, and even kicked off a mini riot when they flooded out into the streets and attacked two parked tour buses. Other fans flocked to the merchandise table to return all the stuff bought before the show in a furious frenzy.
