Jack White's band send the crowd 'Crazy'
Jack White and Brendan Benson‘s band played the track in front of a huge crowd on the AT&T stage at Chicago‘s Grant Park during an hour set filled with tracks from their debut album ‘Broken Boy Soldiers’ alongside a series of covers including David Bowie‘s ‘It Ain’t Easy’ and Nancy Sinatra‘s ‘Bang, Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)’, which featured in the Quentin Tarantino movie ‘Kill Bill’.
Over on the Q101 stage, Editors performed a blistering debut set in sweltering conditions as singer Tom Smith declared: “We’ve heard a lot about Lollapalooza, but we’ve never played it before. This is fucking awesome!.”
The four-piece had the crowd bouncing as they performed hits from their debut album ‘The Back Room’, the highlight of which was a frantic rendition of their hit single ‘Munich’.
Up to 150,000 festival goers are expected to descend on Grant Park for the three day event which was revived in 2003 after a six year hiatus.
