As we predicted yesterday, one half of White Stripes turns up, even though they're no longer playing...

MEG WHITE has arrived on site at the READING FESTIVAL, just as NME.COM predicted yesterday.

The Detroit duo sensationally pulled out of the Carling Weekend at the eleventh hour after Jack broke his finger in a car crash.

This afternoon Meg was spotted drinking with Robert Turner from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, watching Detroit’s The Soledad Brothers.

The drummer was in great spirits, signing autographs for fans and chatting, telling them Jack’s on the mend.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club replace White Stripes at this year’s event, and play this evening at 8pm.
