This was my 5th time seeing Jack White. Once in an EPIC performance with the White Stripes, once with the Dead Weather, and twice with the Raconteurs including the most recent visit to the Tabernacle. With a set list that mixed songs from his solo as well as these prior acts, I was really excited to see this show.
Unfortunately, it was my least favorite of my prior experiences with Jack. The sound mix was incredibly bad, very muddy and vocals often buried. Given this show was at the FOX theater which is generally a sonic blessing, this was a real disappointment. The pale lighting along with the light colored clothing just created a hazy, washed out visual effect.
While Jack is a perinial performer, the show was just not as energized as any of my prior experiences. Don't get me wrong, I still love guy and believe he continues to gush creativity. But this show disppointed.
