There may not have been a white dress in sight, but there was a Jack White in the crowd anyway.
While performing on stage at his Detroit show on Friday night, the White Stripes frontman proposed to and married his long-term partner Olivia Jean.
While concertgoers may not have anticipated a wedding when purchasing tickets to a White show, they were certainly treated to one following a performance of “Hotel Yorba,” when Jack proposed to Jean and the pair exchanged vows at the Masonic Temple in Detroit, the couple’s hometown.
“The marriage is legal and valid,” according to a representative representing White, according to People.

“It’s been such a wonderful day, do you mind if we get married right now?” Jack inquired of the assembled guests before the ceremony began. The ceremony was then officiated by Ben Swank, co-founder of Third Man Records, who delivered a classic Prince line: “Dearly beloved, we have met here today to get through this thing called life,” according to People.
Former White Stripes bandmate and wife Meg White predeceased him in 2000. From 2005 to 2013, White married model Karen Elson, with whom he had two daughters. White has also been married before.
