Congratulations are in order for Jack White and his new wife, Olivia Jean
Jack White had a busy Friday (April 9). First, the Detroit rocker was tapped to perform the national anthem on the Detroit Tigers’ opening day, which anyone familiar with Detroit knows is one of the city’s biggest annual events. He performed an instrumental rendition, featuring his signature slide guitar and a solid backing band. Then things got romantic.
On Friday night, Jack White was booked to perform a sold-out show at the Masonic Temple in Detroit. It looked like it would be like every other sold-out Jack White show in Motor City, until something special happened near the end of the set. During a performance of “Hotel Yorba,” White proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Olivia Jean, whose band opened the night.
White doesn’t allow cellphones on her shows, so no photos from the wedding have been shared on social media, although TMZ has obtained a video of it here.
After completing the song and the marriage proposal, the couple exited the stage and returned with family members. Third Man Records co-founder Ben Swank later married the two.
After the wedding, White took Olivia off the stage and came back to play other songs. He ended the set with the White Stripes classic “7 Nation Army”.
This will be White’s third marriage. He was also married to model and singer Karen Elson and fellow White Stripes bandmate and drummer Meg White. We wish the new couple many years of health and happiness together.
