Jack White may be one of the last real rock stars on the planet. While the swaggering old guard have all but been replaced by skinny jean-clad hipsters playing banjos and Macbooks, Mr. White’s a study in musical progress. His stripped-down garage days with the White Stripes led into new bands, movie roles, and collaborations with the likes of Jimmy Page. He steps out solo in the current manifestation of a guitar legend in the making at the height of his abilities.

Thursday 9/27 $45, 7pm. nTelos Wireless Pavilion, 700 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4910.
