That's despite the White Stripes mainman being hit by a shoe at the SECC the night before...

JACK WHITE last night (January 25) declared Scottish audiences “the best in the world” as White Stripes’ two-night residency at GLASGOW SECC came to a triumphant end.

Despite being hit in the face the previous evening by a shoe thrown from the crowd, Jack told the audience just before launching into ’Seven Nation Army’: “A very long time ago, a man called Pete Seeger once said that Detroit audiences were the best in the world. Well, I’m with you. Everywhere I go, I tell people that Scotland is number one.”

Jack seemed chattier and more relaxed than the previous evening as he and Meg played something of a connoisseur’s set, concentrating on songs like ‘Suzy Lee’ and ‘The Truth Doesn’t Make A Noise’ from the band’s second album, ’De Stijl’, as opposed to the previous night‘s greatest hits style set.

The pair also ran through live favourites ‘Jolene’ and ‘Boll Weevil’ to rapturous applause and even covered Bob Dylan’s ‘Outlaw Blues’.

The tour continues at Blackpool’s Empress Ballroom tomorrow night (January 27).
