In one of the most anticipated Bonnaroo performances, the White Stripes took the stage with cool confidence on the festival's last night with the opening chords of 'Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground.' The minimalist duo of Jack and Meg White ripped through a set of old and new, including songs 'I Think I Smell a Rat,' 'Blue Orchid' and the title track from the band's new album, 'Icky Thump.' "I got word that someone here wanted to ask the person next to him to marry them during this set," Jack said from the crimson colored stage. "That person knows who he is. The next song's called 'A Martyr of My Love for You.'"
Many of the festival's performers gathered to watch the Stripes, including John Paul Jones and comedien Lewis Black. Jack and Meg capped their raucous performance with 'Seven Nation Army,' which was met with resounding cheers and applause. "My sister thanks you and I thank you," Jack shouted. "God bless you Bonnaroo and God Bless you Tennessee."
