Five days ago, Jack White played a show at the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, in New York City. It marked his first performance at MSG since he and Meg White played there as The White Stripes in 2007. Making up for lost time, Jack blitzed through a 23-song set that touched on his two solo albums as well as songs from The White Stripes and The Raconteurs. The night’s big highlight, however, came during the encore when Jack invited A Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip to the stage. Together, they performed the Lazaretto track “That Black Bat Licorice” before launching into Tribe’s classic “Excursions”.
The concert was streamed live online on Pandora and a full track-by-track recording can be streamed here.
Additionally, Pandora has shared video of an interview between Jack and The Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper which took place at Third Man Records in anticipation of the MSG show. Watch it, and find the concert’s full setlist, below.
