While I photographed him at Alexandra Palace a few years back, on his most recent tours, Jack White hasn’t allowed photographers. So I was pleasantly surprised that I could shoot this one. “Front of house” turned out to mean anywhere not in the pit, so I perched on the stairs at the side (careful not to block the seated disabled fans’ view obv). The lights were very (very) orange, and there’ll be no record because it was (naturally) a no-mobile-phone gig, but I probably had a grin on my face the whole time.
