I didn’t get any fantastic photos, but I had a blast at the concert. I tried to follow the rules as well as I could but I really just wanted a couple pictures towards the end. The Fox Theater in Detroit is absolutely gorgeous and it has a very regal feel to it. Even though it was just a concert I felt underdressed. Jack played for roughly three hours and definitely gave his all. At one point he told a story about when he worked at the Fox. His coworkers told him that the golden lions in the front roam around at night when no one’s there. He gave a very touching performance of “You’ve Got Her In Your Pocket” where he got choked up towards the end and the crowd helped him finish. Every song he sang that referenced Detroit made the crowd simply uproarious. He closed the curtain not once, but twice, and it confused everyone, I knew he wasn’t done but I saw some people getting ready to leave the second time around. The whole place smelled like marijuana. Which wasn’t bad. Jack played “Blunderbuss” one of my favorites and told us that his son, Henry told him to play it. The show ended with Jack telling the crowd that it was his last show at the Fox, I didn’t know if he was being serious but it didn’t sound like a joke. After that he played his last song, “Goodnight Irene” originally by Leadbelly. It was as beautiful as ever, especially when the crowd sang along. It had me in tears, tears of joy. Thank you Jack, not only for a kick-ass show, but a kick-ass show that also was very touching at the same time. I hope Jack does return to the Fox, but if he doesn’t than I’m glad I got to see him there.
THE CONCERT WAS THE FUCKING BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME IN MY ENTIRE LIFE
"Led Zeppelin are notoriously hesitant to allow their music to be licensed for commercial purposes. Knowing this, Richard Linklater filmed a plea by actor Jack Black in front of 1,000 screaming fans, imploring the band to let the production use the "Immigrant Song" in the movie. The plea worked and the filmed request is included on the DVD."
