Contrary to reports, William Morris Endeavor Entertainment has not blacklisted the University of Oklahoma after the school's newspaper, The Oklahoma Daily, published a copy of Jack White's tour rider for his recent show in Norman, Okla.
"At no time did Jack White or White's management say that we would never play there again, that is untrue," the musician's management company Monotone Inc. said in a statement obtained by Variance. "We hope those present for Mr. White's performance are able to maintain their good memories from the experience and he looks forward to seeing them again soon."
The Daily on Sunday shared the details of White's rider, which includes his $80,000 show fee and previously confidential guacamole recipe. The paper subsequently claimed it had been barred from WME's entire roster, which includes the likes of Pharrell, Sam Smith, Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake.
"Jack doesn't write the rider nor make demands about his favorite snacks that must be in his dressing room," Monotone said. "We're not even sure he likes guacamole but we do know that the folks who work hard to put on the show do enjoy it."
White is up for three Grammys this Sunday: Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance for "Lazaretto," as well as Best Alternative Music Album for Lazaretto. His performance "That Black Bat Licorice" on Thursday's Tonight Show can be seen below.
