Jack White bursts Gary Oldman’s nose
Watch full concert movie: Stripes mainman injures his director friend during unplanned scuffle that acts as intro to Unstaged live recording
Jack White burst director Gary Oldman’s nose in an impromptu scuffle at the start of the White Stripes mainman’s new concert movie, available in full below.
The opening scene, which takes place ahead of the New York Unstaged show shot live last week, shows film star Oldman waiting alone in White’s recording studio. He stands up as he sees the musician arrives – then is thrown onto a sofa as White runs at him and attacks him.
They roll around on the floor, knocking over mic stands, as Oldman screams for help twice.
After cutting the light-hearted performance, the out-of-breath duo realise Oldman is bleeding. In the following scene, shot in White’s car, the director says: “Got me good there, Jack.” The guitarist replies: “If you even come at me like that again…”
White’s solo album, Blunderbuss, has received positive reviews around the world. He’s touring the record with two bands, one all-male, the other all-female, with neither group knowing which he’ll choose to perform at each show.
