Jack White

Jack White cut short a show at the Radio City Music Hall in New York on Sunday, less than an hour after he had taken to the stage. As you might expect, the assembled fans weren’t best pleased about it.

After being shuffled out of the venue, many apparently stayed behind to shout about how upset they were. And then got more upset when a pizza delivery driver arrived and went round to the stage door, according to the New York Observer.

The reason for the abrupt end to the show is not entirely clear, with people speculating that the audience hadn’t been responsive enough, that someone had repeatedly heckled White, that ticket touts had irked him, and/or that he just really fancied a pizza. Though a member of the venue’s security team said that White “wasn’t happy with the sound”.
