Jack White sets Fox date

blunderbuss_477The enigmatic Jack White is hitting the road this fall and will pull into the Fox Theatre at 8 p.m. Oct. 9.

Tickets for the show, in support of his debut solo album, “Blunderbuss,” are on sale at 10 a.m. Friday for $39.50-$85. Tickets can be purchased through www.livenation.com, www.foxatltix.com, the Fox box office, all Ticket Alternative outlets or by calling 1-855-ATL-TIXX.

“Blunderbuss” hit the top of the Billboard 200 album chart upon its release in April, an impressive debut for the former White Stripes leader.

The White Stripes sucked and so does Jack White.

At least we have good band, Heart, playing the Fox this year.

um, Pete, if you think White Stripes and Jack White suck, please let EVERYONE know the great “music” you listen to….. you really think Heart in 2012 is better than this? Maybe back in the 70s Heart was good, but not now.

Really?

Same excuse for not showing up at Braves games? Heart still plays? They’re old enough to be on the nursing home circuit. Jack White is unique and happens to be producing some of the best music at his 3rd Man Records in Nashville.

Heart is a great rock show – they have a really good guitar player and the band behind the Wilson sisters is tight. They cover Led Zep (Ann can sing those R. Plant high notes like nobody’s business), the Who and other rock classics.

Jack White is a throwback artist. Love that cover of the Blasters ‘I’m Shakin’ on his new album.

Funny to me that anyone would rip one or the other. Got me Heart tix and plan to see Jack too.

For those who don’t know Jack White, try to catch the documentary “It Might get Loud.” Jack White, The Edge and Jimmy Page get together to share stories, histories and rip their axes… Jack White tells a great story about his favorite song. “It was my favorite song the first time I heard it, and it still is….” (Grinnin’ in Yo Face by Son House)

Nothing wrong with Heart, and will be going to that show and to Jack White. Jack’s new album is excellent, and he is one of the true guitar talents in the business today. “Pete”, come on man.

Really? Someone actually wrote that? Heart? A band that has sold over 30 million records and is ranked number 51 by VHS? A band that has had top 10 albums in 4 different decades isn’t that good? Are you stupid or just ignorant?

Whether or not Heart is a band you like or have heard much of to say “If you think Heart is that good, please review your sanity” is about the most ignorant thing I have ever read in a blog. I mean I saw a dumb ass once say the Beatles weren’t all that good, butI think he was just a troll because NO ONE could be that stupid.

As for Jack White/ I had never heard of him before but I listened to several of his song’s on Youtube.He was enjoyable but didn’t reach out and grab me. I wouldn’t say that anyone who likes him lacks sanity or taste though, it just didn’t grab me. Maybe I didn’t hear the right song.

To those who like him, enjoy the show. I would definitely go if I had free tickets.

The you should get out more. They have been top ten in the ’70’s, 80’s, 90,s and 2010’s. Turn your hearing aid up.

Clearly Pete was messing with everyone and look…there’s a lot of reaction. Job well done, Pete.

On a more serious note, Heart is a great band. And Jack White is amazing. This is gonna be a killer show.

Dude Jack is at the top of his game! Saw him at the super small venue WorkPlay in Bham, at the Hangout Fest in Gulf Shores and at Webster Hall in NYC. Every show was great in its own way(Ball & Buscuit and HBTB @ WorkPlay THE Black Math/Ball & Biscuit/300 Lbs of Heavenly Joy[Howlin' Wolf] and 7NA with fireworks in background @ Hangout and Carolina Drama @ Webster Hall). You guys are in for a treat! And pay no attention to that Pete cat. I have an acquaintance that ‘Trolls’. They get more ‘respect’ in their pitiful groups the more they rile up the other posters with the ultimate goal to get a thread frozen. Hail Hail Jack White and Third Man Records! ‘Your Turntable Is Not Dead’
