Where's Jack White Heading After His Show?
Though Cherry Bar was rockin' last night, Jack White failed to show in the end, mainly due to the efforts of a particularly avid and slightly unhinged fan. While touring with the Dead Weather in 2010, a woman broke into one of the band member's hotel rooms and stole a phone and began calling White and others. Though the breaking and entering happened last time, the woman apparently contacted White again yesterday, saying she could commit suicide if she couldn't meet him. Someone who attended White's Melbourne show last night, had this to say:
During the gig Jack started going into a bit of a blues ditty and regaling us a tale of the last time he was in Melbourne. Apparently this chick... broke into Jack Lawrence's hotel room and stole his phone, which just so happened to have the contact details of everyone he knows (including JW). This led to several crazy calls and stalking occasions where she ended up trying to get to Jack backstage, and was threatening to commit suicide. The police got involved and the story goes that she has since been hospitalised.
Cherry commented on the cancellation late last night saying "post-show plans axed. Fact"
. While in other, happier, news, the technical term to describe White's setlist last night is 'amazeballs'. Check out the review here.
Are you sitting at home cursing yourself for not getting a ticket to Jack White this eve? Or perhaps you weren’t so silly and he’s about to blow your socks off at Festival Hall? Well, we’ve got an insider tip for you. Word on the street is he’ll be heading to Cherry Bar
after his show tonight.
The go-to destination for many musicians post-gig (even Lady Gaga wanted to have her private party there earlier this month
), scurrilous rumours currently abound that Mr White’s soundcheck dude was scoping out the stage area at the ACDC Lane bar. Yesterday Cherry posted on their facebook page
: “1. SPLENDOUR sideshows are happening all over Melbourne this week. 2. Many of these touring bands will be coming in to Cherry. 3. Cherry is open from 6pm to 3am or 5am every night. 4. Just saying.” While earlier today they teased they would be expecting “a very special guest tonight
We were already heading down to see the Murlocs
play (who’re also playing the Everguide party next week
) but hopefully we’ll get a bonus Jack White sighting too.
