The Raconteurs play five years after White Stripes cancellation

The RaconteursJack White finally made it to the T In The Park festival tonight (July 12) – five years after a car accident forced his other band, The White Stripes, to pull out of the festival.

The guitarist, who has Scottish ancestry, finally made his debut appearance at the event playing with his supergroup on the Radio 1/NME Stage before an enormous crowd.

The band’s set showcased songs from both of the four-piece’s albums, 2006’s debut ‘Broken Boy Soldiers’ and this year’s ‘Consolers Of The Lonely’.

The group also played a White-sung version of the Charley Jordan blues standard ‘Keep It Clean’.

The highlight was an extended version of the band’s 2006 debut single ‘Steady, As She Goes’, with White encouraging the crowd to sing the closing ‘are you steady now?’ refrain.

The Raconteurs played:

‘Consoler Of The Lonely’

‘Hold Up’



‘You Don’t Understand Me’

‘Top Yourself’

‘Old Enough’

‘Keep It Clean’

‘Steady, As She Goes’

‘Rich Kid Blues’

‘Many Shades Of Black’

‘Blue Veins’

‘Salute Your Solution’
