One of the most anticipated music festivals this year has wrapped up its program that contains more than 100 acts. The 2007 Bonnaroo Festival ends Saturday night (June 17) with The White Stripes giving a nice closure.
The White siblings turned the stage flaming red and performed the usual minimalist set. Opening the show with "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground", they mixed their classics with the new "Icky Thump" series. For the last piece, the duo decided to do the Grammy winning song "Seven Nation Army" that further invited roars from audience. Jack White then said goodbye by saying "My sister thanks you and I thank you. God bless you Bonnaroo and God Bless you Tennessee."
What started off with a horrible incident ends with better round up. As people started leaving their tents in the campsite, The Coffee County Sheriff's Department and the Tennessee Highway Patrol accumulated "only" 73 arrests.
Compared to last year, the number of arrests is three times fewer although another death occurred this year. The identity of the young man found dead near his tent is known as Cody L. Conover, 25, who came from Lancaster, Ky. An autopsy result will be announced in a few weeks.
