Jack White

Last night, Jack White returned to Madison Square Garden for his first solo headlining performance. The White Stripes had previously held top billing at the World’s Most Famous Arena back in 2007.

Opening the night was the eclectic choice no one was really expecting in rap duo Run The Jewels who overcame murky sound issues with their famous, natural dynamic. Rage Against The Machine’s Zach De La Rocha came out for a rare guest performance for his collab with RTJ, “Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck).”

White hit the stage with a firestorm of energy, clearly reveling in the adrenaline rush of playing what was arguably the biggest show of his solo career up until this point. He scream sang nearly every song towards the end, closing with a healthy stew of favorites from all of varied projects he’s been a part of and last year’s Lazaretto.

Friend of the site Nicholas Saint Onge was on hand to capture some of the action as well. Check out our videos of Jack White and Run The Jewels at Madison Square Garden.
