Goddammit, Jack. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Actually, probably pretty smart of him to play it at a show I wasn't at.

Cool. Thanks for that! I just entered it into setlist.fm Hopefully someone will be able to add in the ones you can't recall or change the order if it's out of order.

Here are two excerpts about Jack's performance from two different reviews:

 

http://www.calgaryhe...4484/story.html

 

 

Closing the night out was the epitome of alt rock now, Jack White. Yes, we can safely say, up to now, his best artistic days are as one-half of the White Stripes, despite other post and present outlets such as supergroup The Raconteurs and his two-album solo career. But he still keeps on keeping on.

And White’s set stretched from them until now, featuring White Stripes’ material such as Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground, the cool country Hotel Yorba and, of course, the ubiquitous arena anthem Seven Nation Army to The Raconteurs’ Steady, As She Goes and newer solo tunes like Blunderbuss.

 

All of it was hammered home in a way that was as expert as it was seemingly indifferent. Yes, he sounded great — his guitar downright nasty at times and his voice the right, sinister mix of scream and wail — and his band was sensational and voluminous, but it also seemed like just another night for Jack White and hammered out as if he had a cab waiting. The man is that talented that he can sleepwalk through an hour on a stage and there are very few who will notice.

 

Unfortunately when you do, despite how amazing it sounds and the memorable material that he channels, it still comes off as just another night at the rock game.

 

Then again, maybe that’s just someone pining for something more.

 

 

 

http://www.calgarysu...y-to-end-summer

 

 

The crowd erupted as White and his crack band launched into Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground from the killer 2001 White Stripes album White Blood Cells, which was shortly followed by the genuine C&W of Hotel Yorba

from the same album and Temporary Ground from the outstanding new Lazeratto
album.

 

Under cool-ish and threatening late day skies and spitting rain, the 39-year-old Detroit-bred, Nashville-based garage blues belter

levelled the crowd at Fort Calgary with a set that touched on all phases of his
already storied career, while also paying homage to the heroes who got him here.
White is not only an innovator, but a student of the history of blues, rock …
and, uh, blues-rock.

 

“How you feel right now, Calgary?” White asked the punchy
throng, which burst into thunderous applause on cue. “I think that’s how we
feel, too.”

 

Just like Neil Young, Dylan and Pearl Jam, there is no

set-list and the crowd is an active participant in a Jack White concert. Songs
from both solo releases, a heavy dose of The White Stripes and more than a
smattering of The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather are a given, but that’s all
we know. Because that’s all White knows until he and his band are in the moment
and into the song. Perfect.

The notion of Jack phoning it in is something I can't even comprehend.  :wacko:  Not to mention the notion of him gallantly plugging away even though his best days are behind him.   :rolleyes:

 

Yet another reason to ignore the reviews!

I will say that of the reviews I've seen from this tour, this one surprised me the most.  Beyond comprehension for me too.  Made me wonder about the writer and what their expectations were.
