Jack White Exits Stage, Leaving Fans Angry And Mystified

At Radio City last night, Jack White performed a short set (under an hour) and split, leaving the crowd confused and deeply pissed.

It was a big-time "love interruption."

The theories floating around about White's premature departure seem to be:

He didn't like the sound.

He wasn't happy that so many tickets went to scalpers.

He felt the audience was too subdued. (At one point, White wondered, "Jesus Christ, is this an NPR convention?")

But the first reason seems to be the one with the most credibility at this point. (And when an official statement comes in, I'll let you know. No love interruption here.)

Anyway, as fans stormed out, they took their time to do a full set of insult spewing.

Some were heard yelling bon mots like "Fuck Jack White!"

But maybe the most pungent remark came from the disgruntled ex fan who yelped, "Jack White kills puppies!"

Yeah, but at least he does it quickly.

I'd rather an hour of Jack White than two hours of most anyone else. :) Quality over quantity, no?

@KayGardiner @annshayne @mikeymusto It's important for these guys to behave badly now and then. Ryan Gosling gets boring after a while. Hee.

I know it was in 1979, but when I saw Toronto's B-Girls, the Undertones and the Clash at Toronto's O'keefe Centre. the tickets cost $7.00 for reserved seats and .70 cents entertainment tax. That's about $2 per hour of freaking fabulous music. And I saw over 100 acts during this time for similar prices.

I have no desire, nor the mega-bucks, to ever see a live gig again.

the music industry is in the toilet. These shows are not worth the ticket prices, at all.

@mikeymusto I saw PULP there earlier this year and the sound and crowd were amazing.
