Watch Jack White Play On After Power is Pulled on His Set in Dublin

By Kevin Rutherford

Your silly curfews and speakers cannot contain Jack White.

The rocker recently performed a long, career-spanning set with The Kills at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin, Ireland, that saw him play on well into the night — so late, in fact, that he ran up against the venue’s curfew.

In he and his band’s final song, a cover of “Goodnight, Irene,” White brought out Kills frontwoman Alison Mosshart and dived into the classic tune. But in the middle of the song, the venue finally pulled the plug on the late show, cutting all power to the speakers — something that might cause most acts to finally give up the ghost and thank the audience for coming.

White, however, did not flinch.

As the power cut out, White and band instead continued to play, the frontman stepping out to the front of the stage, strumming his guitar and belting out the final lines of the song at the top of his lungs.

White was performing a bit of a warmup set prior to his headlining spot at this weekend’s Glastonbury, which has been in a bit of hot water this year; two have already died at the festival this week.

His most recent album, Lazaretto, hit No. 1 upon its June release, his second solo album (out of two) to do so.
