I've seen bigger bands do it all the time and these are also guys that dont only tour for 2 weeks at a time, they are touring 200-300 nights a year.
But then again some guys just dont want to talk to their fans because they think they are better than them....or I mean they want to "keep the mystery."
Anyway, I gave up long ago at getting Jack to sign anything, My Raconteurs record will just remain with 3 signatures instead of 4.
I met Jack during my tour of Third Man with Blackwell a little while back. I didn't ask for an autograph or photo. Though, in retrospect, it seems I should have asked. I think Blackwell set up that meeting so I could at least get a photo. But we were in the heart of Third Man and I didn't know if photos were even allowed.

Anyway, it's one of those "I'll never know" moments.
That is much different than a show environment though. I’m with Ben on this one..Jack just doesn’t want to meet his fans. It’s a bit insulting to be honest. As Ben mentioned, much bigger artists do it all the time. I’ve waited around for jack after many shows and never had any luck. After Chattanooga there were a group of us who stayed for a couple hours until he came out. Maybe 10-15 left when he came out. Security made us all go way out to the parking lot so jack could walk out to his bus about 100 feet away from us. Not even a wave or a thank you..

I’m hoping for some good merch this tour.
Ugly sweatshirts and fridge magnets didn’t really do it for me last time.

A show not announced, like on the street or in a pub or whatever.

I wonder who’ll comprise the rest of the touring band.
...Dominic Davis, now a session player who's on White's upcoming tour...
