White Stripes Reunite, Briefly, At Raconteurs Show

The White Stripes made the Raconteurs' second show at the Fillmore Detroit memorable.

Coming back from the encore break on Sunday (June 8), singer-guitarist Jack White was accompanied by ex-wife and White Stripes drummer Meg White. She sat at Patrick Keeler's kit and tapped on a few of the drums while the audience went nuts, thinking it was about to see a surprise performance by the Stripes. But after Jack White shouted, "Hey everybody, this is Meg White!," she waved, got up and walked off the stage while the rest of the Raconteurs filed on for the encore.

The Stripes, who formed in 1997 in Detroit, have been off the road since September, when Meg's "acute anxiety" forced the band to cancel dates in North America and the U.K. The group hasn't played in Detroit since 2005.

Jack White, however, has said the duo has already started working on its seventh studio album.
