Rocker Jack White has vowed to keep performing after suffering an ankle injury at his show in San Francisco, California.

The “Loser” hitmaker sprained his ankle during a gig at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Friday, but powered through his second concert at the venue on Saturday.

In a message on his record label’s Instagram.com account, which was accompanied by a photo of his severely bruised ankle, an administrator writes, “Jack White sprained his ankle last night on stage in San Francisco.

“The camp is pressuring Jack to postpone the rest of the tour but Jack wants the show to go on tonight. See you tonight at the Bill Graham Civic.”

White is next scheduled to hit the stage in Seattle, Washington on Monday.
