Jack White Plays For Less Than An Hour In New York, Gets Slammed On Twitter

Written by Kiel Egging on September 30, 2012

Jack White has been panned by fans for abruptly ending the first of his two shows at Manhattan’s Radio City Music Hall…quitting after less than an hour on stage.

When the house lights went up and White failed to return for an encore, along with plenty of boos, fans turned to Twitter to vent their anger over the artist’s short set.

Buzzfeed reckon there is a strong possibility that White cut his show short because a huge amount of the tickets for the gig supposedly went to scalpers.

The tweets were fairly brutal, with some going as far to say that White “doesn’t deserve to play in New York again’, and others describing him as a “shitbag” and a “fucking douchebag”.

Another tweet indicated that fans were “chanting ‘Fuck You Jack'” at the venue when it was clear he wasn’t going to return to the stage.

And, in an extreme sign of how disappointed fans were, one punter tweeted that fans were “returning Jack White merchandise to the gift shop.  I’m not kidding”.

Long-time fans were also dismayed and turned on the singer, saying they were “done” with White.
