                                    Jack White returned to the Ryman Auditorium once again to thrill his many Nashville, TN fans for two Sold-Out shows, Tuesday 5/15/12 and Wednesday 5/16/12.  Jack White’s current tour provides music from his solo efforts as well as his other musical projects which he has created.  Concert Blast friend (and huge Jack White fan) was lucky enough to purchase a ticket for the Tuesday night concert (both shows sold out in about 10 minutes) and wanted to write a review for us.  We gladly accepted.  Enjoy the Jack White concert review provided by Terri Gibson.
