Jack White Joined by the Dead Weather as He Plays Three-Hour Homecoming Gig
Jack White played a three-hour, 38-song set earlier this week at the Detroit venue he saved from foreclosure last year.

As NME reports, White took to the stage in his hometown at the Masonic Temple, the venue he saved after paying off its reported $142,000 in back taxes so it could stay open. The venue then renamed its 1,586-capacity Cathedral Theater as the Jack White Theater to honour the singer.

On Wednesday night, White returned to the venue to perform a 38-song set that included his own solo material as well as songs from the White Stripes, the Dead Weather – on which he was joined by bandmates Alison Mosshart and Dean Fertita – and a brief cover of Led Zeppelin's "Lemon Song" during an airing of "Ball and Biscuit." He also played a cover of Beck's "Devil's Haircut." Check out fan footage of the gig below.

Earlier this week, Jack White marked his return to Detroit by throwing the ceremonial first pitch at a Detroit Tigers baseball match on Tuesday (July 29). White stepped out in front of fans prior to the game against Chicago White Sox at the Tigers' Comerica Park, throwing the ball straight to his opposite number who was, incongruously, dressed as Santa Claus.
