The White Stripes to release ‘Live At The Detroit Institute Of Arts’ album

The 50th vault package from Third Man Records documents the band’s famed 2001 museum performance

Third Man Records has announced the release of a live White Stripes album recorded at Detroit’s Institute of Arts.

The Jack White-owned label’s 50th vault package documents the band’s performance in the museum’s Diego Rivera Court on November 2, 2001.

“That was the best thing we’ve ever done. It was also the worst thing we’ve ever done,” the band – comprising Jack and Meg White – said in a statement.


Besides being a defining moment in the band’s global ascendancy, the famed concert is noteworthy for breaking the Detroit Institute’s all-time single-day attendance record, as per the Third Man Records website.

The White stripes played 33 tracks over two sets, including 14 covers of songs by Blind Willie McTell, Bob Dylan, Iggy Pop, MC5, Robert Johnson, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and others. You can see official footage from the gig below.

The vault packages include a red and white 2-LP set featuring soundboard audio, a pro-shot DVD of the complete show, previously unseen images, and a custom gatefold jacket. You can see the full tracklisting below.
