Jack White had the honor of closing Lollapalooza Sunday night in Chicago.
It was a weekend of extreme heat, a storm that caused the first full-scale evacuation at the site’s Chicago event on Saturday, and headlining sets by Black Sabbath and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Organizers announced the weekend drew a record-tying 270,000 fans to the city’s Grant Park.
The Chicago Tribune reports White wrapped up the festival by summing up most of the music that preceded him: surf-into-metal-and-back-again guitar solos, erotic co-ed duets, fiddle and pedal-steel-charged country laments, eerie break-up ballads and twisted blues.
White is currently playing dates across North America in support of his debut solo album, “Blunderbuss” – he begins a European tour in Lisbon, Portugal on August 31.
