Third Man Records celebrated its grand opening in London in the best way possible: two surprise shows from the label's founder Jack White. The singer-songwriter played an eclectic 7-song set in the building's basement and then five more songs on the rooftop that spanned all his projects, from solo material to The Dead Weather and Raconteurs, and of course White Stripes hits.

After ripping through "Dead Leaves on the Dirty Ground," "Lazaretto" and "Steady as She Goes," White (who was donning a new look of blue hair) addressed neighbors who may not have enjoyed the raucous he was causing. “I wanna play a song to all the neighbors we’re upsetting now, to the neighbors we’re about to be friends with now, and to Damien Hirst who let us use his balcony,” he said before going into "We're Gonna Be Friends."
