On With the Show! Jack White Sprains Ankle But Continues Touring
As if I didn't have enough reasons to respect blues rock singer/guitarist Jack White already, he just gave me and the rest of the world another one. The other night White severely sprained his ankle, but performed his show at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium anyway despite this.
White's label Third Man Records was highly against the decision and even wanted him to postpone the rest of his tour. However, White wouldn't have it. He has decided he does not want to let his fans down and will continue with the tour as scheduled.
Third Man Records have even posted a pic of the black and blue on White's foot to their Instagram account:
Hopefully White can make a speedy recovery despite his continued tour activities. I know that standing on stage and being active for two hours every night even without an ankle injury is no easy feat. That being said, much props and get well soon Jack White!
