With a "thanks, God bless you," Jack White has stagehands close Fox curtains half-hour into hometown Detroit show. Back out now.

 

Careful, Detroit fans.  Don't want him to pull another Radio City Music Hall (Night 1).

 

First two tracks were Dead Leaves and High Ball Stepper.

The Detroit Free Press Twitter account.

 

Man, that crowd does look shitty.

Yeah from that view, it does seem like a less energetic crowd. And they just tweeted this:

JWIII on the Fox: "I know as Detroiters you can overcome cmfrtble seating and btful lighting to make something as real as possible."

Jaded crowd, or still resentful he left for Nashville?

 

His energy level seems fine, based on the clips I've seen.

Wow, surprised to hear a Detroit crowd would be less than absolutely mental.  I would imagine those resentful of his move to Nashville would be too cool to show up at his show.  I hope it picked up some for him.

I'll be doing my darnedest when he gets to Vancouver to ensure the energy level in the crowd is high, but I'm only one man, even if my initials are J.C.

I say it again.  Shitty crowd.

 

They won't get two nights again in a couple years' time if they're not significantly more energetic in two days' time.

It's a lot harder to get an energetic crowd in a seated venue. He said the same thing himself in his Free Press interview.

But people are standing, and they're barely bobbing their heads.  I attended two nights, back-to-back, at the Orpheum (similar seated venue) in Vancouver in 2005, and we were WAY more energetic.  Seats aren't excuses.

Well at least we know Tam and Sam (Then It Rained) and whoever else from here are part of the energetic crowd.

I hate to be judgmental and all, but it really does seem like a good percentage of the population treat concerts the same way they would movies.

I somewhat agree, but to an extent. I think you get that feeling more when you are performing in a seated venue.

I've seen only a few people using their cell phones for photo/video here @FoxTheatreDet for #JackWhite show. Best crowd I've seen here.

 

That's from a local Detroit entertainment reporter...hmmm...

 

He also said not a single person has sat down.

 

Apparently these guys just have a list of songs (big, in Jack's case) that he might play, and they just number them off as they go.  Which is why that person thought Rose With A Broken Neck was Consoler Of The Lonely last night, on account of all the "lonely"s in the verse.

Oh yeah, I was gonna say that's weird. And to answer your question from yesterday, according to setlist.fm, he's never played Consolers of the Lonely solo

Seated venues are tough for sure.  So maybe you can't be as physically energetic as you would if it were general admission but applause and cheering and singing along are ways to exert energy and get that exchange going.  All 3 shows on the Blunderbuss tour that I saw were seated.  Not ideal and I didn't feel like the crowds were as energetic as they should have been for LA crowds.  (Though I have to admit, LA crowds can be seriously hit or miss.)

If only...


And I think Alison is there tonight, so maybe she'll come out for a song?
