White Stripes Line Up North American Dates

Published: 2005-06-10
They released their newest studio effort, Get Behind Me Satan, this past Tuesday, and now the White Stripes have finally announced plans for a North American tour. The 19-performance jaunt will kick off in San Diego just a few weeks after the Detroit duo wraps up a tour of often bypassed eastern European cities.

Just one Canadian city currently lies in the Stripes' future. Jack and Meg will take up residence Vancouver's Orpheum Theatre for a two-night stint on August 7th and 8th. As August comes to a close, the two-piece will finish off the run with three shows in Chicago.

Accompanying the White Stripes as they make their way around the continent is Ohio band the Greenhorns. Not only does the trio take the title of warm-up act, but two of the Greenhorns can also call themselves bandmates of Jack White. Drummer Patrick Keeler and bassist Jack Lawrence cover rhythm in Raconteurs, White's new side-project with friend Brendan Benson.
