Legendary '80s outfit Great White continues to carry the torch for glammed-up hard rock under the name Jack Russell's Great White, performing to sold-out crowds around the country with a rotating lineup that boasts original frontman Jack Russell. The indomitable Russell has surrounded himself with a prodigiously talented group of players, and the band always does justice to favorites like "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" and "House of Broken Love" at their adrenaline-filled live shows. Fans of arena rock looking for an outsized concert experience look no further: Jack Russell's Great White always takes the stage with showmanship and bombast to spare.
Great White formed in Los Angeles in 1977 and initially performed under a variety of monikers including Highway, Livewire, and Dante Fox. After several lineup changes, they hit their stride in the early '80s and changed their name to Great White -- a nod to guitarist Mark Kendall's natural platinum blonde hair and signature all-white stagewear. A debut EP released in 1982 received heavy airplay in Los Angeles, making them local heroes and landing them a record deal with EMI. They released their self-titled debut album on the label in 1984, making their first appearance on the rock chart with the modest hit "Stick It". Mainstream success came with the 1987 release of their third album Once Bitten, a platinum-certified record that contained the Top 10 rock hits "Rock Me" and "Save Your Love". High-profile tours with Whitesnake, Judas Priest, and Dokken continued to fuel their popularity, paving the way for a string of big-selling albums released in the late '80s and early '90s. After a roster shakeup in the early '00s claimed several of the band's longtime members, Jack Russell continued to play the group's classic hits as Jack Russell's Great White. He carries on the band's legacy today, treating ticket buyers to career-spanning sets of Great White's classic hard rock tunes on tour.
