Oasis & The View Check out White Stripes

The White Stripes were watched by the likes of Oasis and The View as they kicked off the London leg of the 02 Wireless Festival at Hyde Park tonight (June 14).

After two 'warm-up' gis in the UK capital this week, Jack and Meg White played their festival show in front of a crowd that included Oasis bandmates Noel Gallagher and Gem Archer and The View's Kyle Falconer.

The White Stripes played only three songs from new album 'Icky Thump' (released June 18), the title track and single, 'I'm Slowly Turning Into You' and 'A Martyr For My Love For You'.

The rest of the set was made up from a series of older favourites including singles 'Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground', 'Hotel Yorba' and traditional set closer 'Seven Nation Army'.

Jack and Meg had two big screens either side of them which showed them and the crowd in red and white monochrome. Jack rarely spoke, other than to express his pleasure at playing in the park, and to express his awe at support act Queens Of The Stone Age's performance. 15th June 2007
