Jack White cut off by venue, keeps performing anyway

Former White Stripes frontman Jack White recently performed a show at Dublin’s Royal Hospital Kilmainham with the Kills. The singer/songwriter played a massive (25-song) set, including White Stripes hits like “Seven Nation Army” and “Icky Thump,” along with his newer solo tracks like “Lazaretto.” According to Consequence Of Sound, during “Goodnight, Irene,” the venue pulled the plug and turned off the PA due to curfew—but that didn’t faze Mr. White, who kept on playing anyway.

He tells the crowd, “the PA's gone” and asks them to sing along with him. You can check out footage of the performance below. (The plug gets pulled around the 4:30 mark.) Let us know what you think.

White’s latest album, Lazaretto, is out now via Third Man/Columbia.

"Goodnight, Irene"

"Seven Nation Army"

White also covered the Stooges' "I Wanna Be Your Dog":
