Home boy Jack White came to the rescue and saved my favorite gorgeous venue The Magnificent Masonic in DETROIT!! from auction.. It is through no fault of the current management, that these bills had not been paid... This was a sad situation when people took over management 2 years ago to "help" and ran off with the profits... and now for the GOOD NEWS!
Detroit’s historic Masonic Temple announced Tuesday, June 4, 2013, that White made a $142,000 donation to cover the delinquent tax bill for the prominent music venue that has hosted such groups as The Who and the Rolling Stones over the decades.
DETROIT (AP) — Musician Jack White has played springtime Santa, paying a $142,000 back tax bill for Detroit's historic Masonic Temple. The move prevents a threatened auction of the famed venue where The Who and the Rolling Stones once played.
Last Thursday, a then-anonymous donor paid off the famed music venue's entire 2010-2012 tax delinquency. The 14-story Masonic Temple was days away from being put up for sale.
