VIDEO: Jack White keeps playing after power cut off in Dublin

Ahead of his appearance at the Glastonbury Festival this weekend, Jack White performed a show at Dublin’s Royal Hospital Kilmainham alongside The Kills on Thursday.

Consequence Of Sound reports that over the course of the 25-song set, White collaborated with Kills frontwoman and Dead Weather bandmate Alison Mosshart, first inviting her on-stage for “Love Interruption” and later, Mosshart and Kills bandmate Jamie Hince for “Goodnight, Irene”.

During “Goodnight, Irene”, the venue pulled the plug due to curfew, but White and the band kept playing anyway and had the audience join in.

White will officially kick off a summer European tour in support of his new album, “Lazaretto”, at Glastonbury; he’ll follow Robert Plant’s set and appear just before Metallica deliver the first headline show by a metal band at the legendary event.
