Jack White saves hometown Detroit Theater from Foreclosure

Jack White

In recent news, Detroit Masonic Temple was up for foreclosure. However, Jack White who plays for the band White Stripes holds this place dear to his heart. With that said, White stepped in and paid $142,000 in back taxes. With this heroic play, White single-handedly saved the venue from foreclosure.

Now that Detroit Masonic Temple is in the clear, it has a bright future. In fact, the venue is renaming one of the theaters to Jack White Theater that houses 1,568 seats. With White saving his hometown theater, what will be next for the charitable musician?
