17:54PM EDT

Just like the vinyl edition of his most recent album Lazaretto was gimmicky in an astonishing number of ways, Jack White's recent shows seem to be newsworthy for a number of reasons as well. In addition to pulling a fan on stage to play guitar with him on the White Stripes classic "Seven Nation Army," White's show at the Chicago Theatre last night was also the longest of his career, clocking in at a foot-blistering three hours with a 33-song set list, which you can read below. Among these songs were covers by Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, and Jimi Hendrix, and as Consequence of Sound points out, the show also marked White's first performance of the White Stripes' "Blue Orchid" in seven years.READ MORE

Jack White Covers Lorde's 'Royals' In Concert [WATCH]

It looks like Jack White has joined Nirvana and Bruce Springsteen on the list of rockers who think Lorde is pretty cool. At a show in Milwaukee last night, July 21, White performed a cover of the New Zealand pop star's massive hit "Royals." As of right now, the only video footage of this performance is a brief, blurry video posted to Instagram, but it's definitely enough to get the picture and realize just how strange this must have been for the audience. Pitchfork reports that White has also performed covers of Jay-Z's "99 Problems" and the Stooges' "I Wanna Be Your Dog" during previous stops on his current tour.READ MORE
