The Raconteurs first live performance in 8 years: Watch
To celebrate Ten years of Third Man Records, Jack White’s imperious record label, the man behind Third Man brought his band centre stage and The Raconteurs performed for the first time in eight years following their reunion.
With a reunion announced last year and an album on the way following the release of two new songs ‘Sunday Driver’ and ‘Now You’re Gone’, the hype train is blowing its whistel nice and loud for the Raconteurs Railway to once again play host to a locomotive of rock and roll.
Introduced by Jack White’s mother, at this live performance, a host of new songs were debuted including ‘Sunday Driver’, ‘Now That You’re Gone’, ‘Bored and Razed’, ‘Help Me Stranger’, and ‘Shine the Light on Me’, along with two other new songs.
There was enough time in the set for some fan favourites too though. Crowd favourites like ‘Consoler of the Lonely’, ‘Level’, ‘Salute Your Solution’, ‘Steady As She Goes’ and ‘Caroline Drama’.
