Jack White curfewed at Dublin show. Not that he cares.

Jack White is on tour - Glastonbury tonight! Fire up your browsers! - and played Dublin's Royal Hospital Kilmainham on the 26th. The Kills were the support act, and Alison Mosshart came out to sing Jack's Love Interruption with him during his set.

I love the way he grabbed her and got her to fight back for the song's line "grab a hold of me and fight me". She's pretty good at fighting. It's lucky that they weren't singing one of the dismemberment songs from that album (Blunderbuss). If they'd acted out "cut off the bottoms of my feet, make me walk on salt" (from Freedom at 21) I doubt if it would make me grin as much.

Apparently there is a curfew in Dublin, so the PA was shut down before Jack was finished with the show.  Here he is singing Goodnight Irene (with Alison on second vocals) until the PA shuts off, when, unfazed, he just asks the audience to sing it with him instead.

This tour is shaping up pretty well, I'd say.

Edit to add: Some more views of the songs - better sightlines but incomplete.

Hi Sis

David and his partner Asia were at the Dublin concert and we look as if we will be seeing him in Leeds in November. You can see David on the attached photo, in the yellow poncho holding up 2 beers.

Yes, David sent me the photo! Glad you are getting the opportunity to see Jack. It sounds like a great show this time around.
