Jack White in Concert at The Pete (Thurs., 4/14/22)
Jack White, the rock star clinched immortality at 26 when the White Stripes released “Seven Nation Army,” a song which sports fans chant, marching bands cover, and DJs still spin. After Jack White parted ways with drummer (and ex-wife) Meg White, and the White Stripes dissolved, Jack White began his remarkable run of solo albums, starting with 2012’s Blunderbuss. 2014’s Lazaretto followed. He released the eccentric Boarding House Reach in 2018. “Ice Station Zebra” saw White mashing bluesy piano chords with rapped lyrics and a guitar riff reminiscent of Metallica’s “One.” White also plays drums in the Dead Weather and is a member of The Raconteurs. The Raconteurs played a packed Stage AE in 2019 in support of their release Help Us Stranger. White even produced Van Lear Rose by Loretta Lynn in 2004. White has two albums coming out this year—Fear of the Dawn and Entering Heaven Alive—the former LP is in his rock mode while the later is a folk album. Last October White dropped the single “Taking Me Back” to much acclaim and heavy airplay and streaming. The song is used in the video game, Call of Duty: Vanguard. Post-covid, the world has been having supply chain issues, White has taken note and his tour is the Supply Chain Issues Tour. Hopefully there will be no issues of any kind for his concert at the Petersen Events Center. Special guest is Geese. 3719 Terrace St., Oakland.
