Things got even hotter when Emily Haines and James Shaw of Metric came out on stage to do a rare acoustic set. The full band’s equipment was stuck in Miami!

The headliner, Jack White, finished up the show with a bang. Incorporating his all-female band then later switching to his all-male band, he kept the crowd going crazy from beginning to end with his endless energy and commanding stage presence.
