LaLibre.be has published a review of Pearl Jam and Jack White’s performances at the Rock Werchter festival on Saturday. The review had criticism and praise for White and Pearl Jam. Below are translated excerpts, note that the verbiage might be slightly off since it’s a translation.

The Jack White concert did not start under the best auspices for the press photographers, embarrassed in their work because pushed away from the stage by the organization.

Grimed white makeup, a bit of Robert Smith’s haircut, dressed like an old Blink fan, Jack White has become overweight with the years – he may have wanted to hide it – but he has nothing lost of his grinta on stage. What a show saturated with energy the guy from Detroit gave.

There was the sweetest ( “The Same Boy You’ve Always Known”), the song dedicated to Trump ( “Icky Thump” ), but the audience nevertheless spent their time doing headbanging on “Hardest Button To Button “, ” I’m Slowly Turning into You ” and the best (subjectively) ” Ball and Biscuit ” without forgetting of course ” Seven Nation Army ” to finish.

The article also reviewed Pearl Jam’s performance.

Criticizing the Pearl Jam concert is not easy because there are complicated feelings to explain. Their show managed to make thousands of people jiggle, but the performance did not touch us.

Yet, with 25 years of experience on stage, the big machine that is the mythical group from Seattle gave everything for nearly two hours as if it was the last show.

    Technically more of a tag during the jam, or a snippet. But in either case, a nice nod.

    Now it’s time for JW to join the band again on a Pearl Jam song. You know, one they wrote, not a cover of someone else’s work.
