Jack White Announces Big Nashville, NYC, Ellen Gigs

I’ve been to a lot of shows at Madison Square Garden, and the best one I ever saw was probably the White Stripes, with Grinderman and the late Porter Wagoner opening, in 2007. Jack White absolutely owned the Garden that night, stomping and preening and flailing his way across a mostly-unadorned stage. I remember seeing the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner wandering through the MSG hallway after the show, looking dazed. After a couple of #1 albums, White has now gotten to the point in his solo career where he gets to return to the Garden. On the Third Man website, White announced today that he’ll play Madison Square Garden 1/30. He’ll also play Bridgestone Arena, in his adapted hometown of Nashville, 1/28. And he’ll appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show 10/9 — this Thursday — which should be pretty interesting.
