Jack even gets the ukelele out in Mexico...

White Stripes premiered songs from their new album ’GET BEHIND ME SATAN’ with a show in Mexico last night (May 11).

The Detroit duo have started their world tour in South America, playing the first show at the Monterrey Fundidora Amphitheatre de Coca Cola.

According to fans at the gig, the band played forthcoming single ’Blue Orchid’ as well as new songs ’Little Ghost’’, ’The Nurse’, ’The Denial Twist’ and ’Passive Manipulation’, which featured Meg on vocals.


One fan at the show told NME.COM: “The venue is similar to an amphitheater and it was crammed. Jack started the show by saying. “Hermanos y Hermanas”, which means brothers and sisters, and played mandolin and marimba on two songs.”

The group also played classics including ’Seven Nation Army’, ’Hotel Yorba’ and ’Fell In Love With A Girl’.

Another fan added: “Meg in particular was very good, and she was wearing a rose in her hair.”

The group’s only confirmed UK date so far is a headline appearance at June’s Glastonbury Festival.
