The 24-song set (including a four-song encore) includes cuts from ‘Icky Thump’, ‘The White Stripes’, and ‘Elephant’, as well as covers of Robert Johnson, Son House and Lead Belly. It can be purchased in various physical and digital formats here, from MP3 for $9.95 to MQA for $19.95.

On Jul 31, 2007, the White Stripes played their final show. The duo was touring behind what would be their final album as a group (2007’s Icky Thump) and performed a 20-song, 4-encore set at the Southaven, Mississippi venue Snowden Grove. Now eight years after the band officially broke up, a recording of that final performance has made its way online, as Consequence of Sound points out.

Blackwell also revealed that the band had no pre-decided setlist for the show: “The White Stripes had never played Mississippi prior to this performance and it’s clear the deep musical heritage of the state loomed large in Jack’s mind as he attacked the performance setlist-free.” Read the note in full on the Nugs.net blog.

 

The Raconteurs frontman spoke with Rolling Stone recently, discussing thath Dylan  plans to open his own venue and distillery in White’s home of Nashville.

Questioned as to whether Dylan has ever offered the ‘Seven Nation Army’ singer any musical advice, White responded: “All the time. He’s been an incredible mentor to me, and a good friend, too.”“I’m lucky to even have one conversation with him. Everything else has been icing on the cake.”

White was then pressed on a possible team-up between the pair, or whether they’d penned a track together. “I cannot tell you that. I wish I could tell you, but I cannot,” the musician teased.

Describing his longstanding friend, White said of Dylan: “He’s very complicated. A lot of people who go through fame, even a small taste of it, are going through experiences that probably no human being should ever go through.

“I’ve walked into a room and felt like I’m intimidating people. You don’t know what you’re supposed to do. I think.
