The historic moment came at the end of White’s set at the Masonic Temple Theatre, during a rendition of The White Stripes’ 2001 tune ‘Hotel Yorba’. Jean  

To begin White’s encore – consisting of The Raconteurs’ ‘Steady, As She Goes’ and the Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’ – he and Jean returned to the stage 

White’s shows reportedly have a strict no-phone policy, though one punter was lucky enough to film the proposal and subsequent marriage.

Until yesterday, White and Jean’s relationship had been kept secret; it’s unclear how long they dated before being married, though they’ve been in a working relationship since 2009.  

Jean signed to Third Man Records that year, and has released three albums – two solo efforts, 2014’s ‘Bathtub Love Killings’ and 2019’s ‘Night Owl’ 

This marks White’s third marriage. He wedded White Stripes bandmate Meg White in 1996 (a year before that band formed), and the pair were divorced in 2000.  

Yesterday also saw White release the first of his two new albums, ‘Fear Of The Dawn’ – with the other, ‘Entering Heaven Alive’, due out in July  

The UK and European leg of the tour will begin on Monday June 19, when White and his band play the first of two shows at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, London.
