Jack White pays $142K to save historic Detroit Masonic Temple

Rocker Jack White has saved the day for the Detroit Masonic Temple. On Thursday (May 30), an anonymous donor paid off $142 thousand in tax debt owed by the temple. According to the Detroit Free Press, that anonymous donor has been revealed as the former White Stripes front man.

Why did White choose to step in and save the building? It turns out the temple is a pretty legendary concert venue, which counts The Who and the Rolling Stones among the bands who have taken its stage. White has performed there himself, both as a solo artist and a member of the White Stripes, and spent time at the temple growing up in Detroit. His mother also served as an usher there for a time.

The building, which features over 1,000 rooms, was close to being auctioned off after being delinquent with its tax payment between 2010 and 2012. The sale can now be avoided and as a thank you, the temple's Cathedral Theater will be renamed the Jack White Theater.
