Jack White Plays Longest Set Of His Career In Chicago

Last night at the Chicago Theatre, Jack White treated the capacity crowd to a mammoth 33-song, near three-hour show that included a variety of material from throughout his career. White dedicated his longest set yet to Windy City institutions such as Muddy Waters and Chess Records according to the Chicago Tribune.

The Third Man Records founder debuted covers of Robert Johnson's "Stones In My Passway" and "Manic Depression" by Jimi Hendrix at the historic venue last night and performed The White Stripes track "Blue Orchid" for the first time since July 31, 2007. Jack also debuted the live version of "Entitlement" off his recent Lazaretto LP. White's set and 50- minute encore featured plenty of songs off his two solo albums as well as from his time with The Raconteurs, The White Stripes and Dead Weather.

The show came to its conclusion with a take on "Seven Nation Army" in which he was aided by a fan that was plucked out of the audience. Watch how it went down:
