It’s been a non-stop road to the top for Jack White ever since the White Stripes meteoric rise to fame. Countless bands and projects later, White sees no reason to stop innovating, and the latest experiment he’s conducting has to do with 3D and virtual reality. By working along with Jaunt to create immersive performances in full 3D, White & co. are now ready to launch 360-degree, live videos of two of his recent shows. The songs in question are “Freedom at 21” and “Ball and Biscuit” from The Bleacher Theater at Fenway Park as well as “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground” from Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
