Jack White Rocks National Anthem At Detroit Tigers’ Home Opener
Jack White and his band performed the national anthem earlier this afternoon at the Detroit Tigers' home opener against the Chicago White Sox.
If you were not in the ballpark to see the instrumental performance of The Star-Spangled Banner, no worries. It is 2022 and thanks to the internet, you can watch it.
Jack White had more than this performance to celebrate today, the first of two albums he will be releasing this year dropped today - Fear of the Dawn. White will release Entering Heaven Alive on July 22nd.
But wait - there is another reason to continue the celebration. Later this evening Jack White kicks off his tour at the Masonic Temple in Detroit, followed by another show there tomorrow night.
Two of my all-time favorite Jack White performances were on Saturday Night Live in October of 2020. White performed a medley of Ball and Biscuit, Don't Hurt Yourself, and Jesus is coming soon. After that killer set, he returned to play Lazaretto during which he paid his respects to Eddie Van Halen by shredding on the guitar.
You can see both SNL performances below, as well as Jack White performing the national anthem earlier today. Trust me, you will be blown away.
What other Detroit bands or musicians would you like to see perform or sing our national anthem? Think about how difficult the song is to sing before you answer. The Star-Spangled Banner is a difficult song to sing even for the most talented of singers.
