JACK WHITE LEAVES BASEBALL GAME TO DO CONCERT AND THEN RETURNS TO GAME
While in Washington D.C., Jack White took time before and after his concert with The Raconteurs to go to the same baseball game – twice! He was at the stadium at the beginning of the Nationals versus Brewers game and after three innings, left to go play his concert. Following his show, he heard the game had gone into extra innings, so he headed back to the ballpark. At the time, he was just over a mile away. For those watching the game on TV, the announcers talked about him while he was shown on camera for nearly a minute, along with his bandmate Brendan Benson. The announcers told the story and said, “That’s the kind of guy you want on your team!” Jack White and The Raconteurs’ next tour stop is Tuesday night in Columbia, South Carolina.
