White Stripes Go To Chelsea
The enigmatic pair play especially for pensioners and we were there for the historic event
The White Stripes played a highly exclusive gig for Chelsea Pensioners this afternoon and MTV News was there.
Jack and Meg played six songs at the The Royal Hospital Chelsea for the war veterans and select media.
In the grand but intimate room the duo performed tracks including Hotel Yorba
During one song Jack White welled up with tears in his eyes and he later said: We want to thank you for the service youve done for the world and especially the USA.
The group, who fitted in well with the Chelsea Pensioners in their red coats also played We Are Gonna Be Friends and covered You Belong To Me.
The White Stripes play the slightly bigger Wireless Festival in Hyde Park tomorrow with a very different crowd!
