Jack White Gets Engaged and Married While Onstage at His Detroit Concert

Congratulations are in order for Jack White, who got engaged and then married during his hometown concert in Detroit on Friday night (April 8).

The whirlwind onstage nuptials started with the 46-year-old musician unexpectedly popping the question to his girlfriend, fellow musician Olivia Jean, while the pair performed a rendition of The White Stripes‘ 2001 single “Hotel Yorba.”

“It’s been such a beautiful day, I figure why don’t we do this right now and get married,” White announced to the sold-out crowd, according to The Oakland Press.

After receiving a tearful yes from Jean, whose band was the opening act at the Masonic Temple show, White continued the song’s final verse: “Let’s get married/ In a big cathedral by a priest/ ’cause if I’m the man that you love the most/ You could say ‘I do’ at least.”

With White’s mother and Jean’s father in attendance, the couple exchanged rings onstage as Third Man Records co-founder Ben Swank officiated the ceremony. Fans in attendance weren’t able to capture the moment on video since White doesn’t allow cell phones at his concerts.

This is White’s third marriage. The rocker was was previously married to White Stripes member Meg White from 1996 to 2000. He was also married to model and singer Karen Elson from 2005 to 2013. White and Elson share a son and daughter together.

White will perform a second concert at Detroit’s Masonic Temple on Saturday.

It’s already been an action-packed weekend for White, who released his latest album, Fear of the Dawn, on Friday. The Detroit native celebrated the release by delivering a bluesy rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Tigers’ opening-day baseball game against the Chicago White Sox for spectators at Comerica Park.
