Hair Nation Tour hits Chicago, Jack Russell falls on stage but the band plays on
CHICAGO, Illionois — Down but not out.
Jack Russell has taken some hard falls, some harder shots but he keeps getting back up again.
At a recent live performance on the Hair Nation Tour the singer of his own band – Jack Russell’s Great White – took a dive.
Right onto the stage.
But as quickly as Russell fell, he seemingly reached out and grab his mic stand to not miss his que.
Nicely done, the singer laughed at himself and acknowledged his failure – but followed up the fall with a re-do of sorts, and stomped the landing.
Doesn’t sound too complex, but for a guy who has had some challenges – kudos to him.
Enough drivel about the fall.
A few online bloggers wrote about the show which we have added below.
We’ve also included video footage of Russell taking that fall just after trying his fancy stage spin.
Broken down at times, beat up at times, but seemingly the 56 year old keeps getting back up.
After 40 years on stage, Russell keeps moving forward.

My review of the show last night …. Chicago House of Blues is always such a cool place for a concert …
The venue was about 70% full … and yes Enuff Z Nuff is a Chicago based band …
Bullet Boys opened the show with kinda in your face Jam , Marq’s vocals were a little muffled to begin with , but sound guy got that fixed pretty quickly . The band overall sound good and Mark was smiling and having a good time on stage . They played about 40 minutes
Enuff Z Nuff was second band on … I am not really a fan of these guys … with that said they actually sounded good and Chip did a lot of interacting with the crowd … I don’t know their music all that well , but overall the band was jamming… Chip and his guitar player got dick to ass with each other and Chip did a reach around and played the guitar players guitar for a solo for a few minutes from behind the guitar player and the guitar player reached behind himself and played Chip’s bass that was slung around Chips neck..kinda weird but pretty cool at the same time ..the crowd really seemed to enjoy them …they played about 45 minutes.
Jack Russell and his band came out last …they played a lot of Great White’s old hits … jack sounded great .. the band sounded great ., jack is having some trouble moving , his neck looks like it’s been fused maybe … but I always enjoyed their music and Jack actually surprised me at how well he sounded … overall Jack’s Great White sounded really good .. Rock Me is one of my top 10 favorite songs of all time and they did a great job playing this song . They played about 90 minutes
So overall , the show started right on time …. The setup between acts was about 15-20 minutes between acts … and Jack was very appreciative for the fan support .,,, Marq was having a great time on stage for his set … And Chip well he is a unique character … overall I was pleasantly surprised and entertained by these three acts !!!!

First off, 70%? Really? It’s not like the place was empty, but there’s no fucking way it was 70% full. Maybe 60%? Upstairs was nearly empty.
Second, how can you give a review of this show without mentioning Jack falling on his ass? Best part of the show!
