Here the Statment:

With unbridled enthusiasm for the June release of Icky Thump, the has printed a North American tour routing that holds no semblance of reality. Indeed, it looks like their journalists simply found and printed the tour routing the band did in support of their 2005 release, Get Behind Me Satan.

In fact, The White Stripes have yet to confirm their North American routing as of yet. But we are happy to say that it will include all 10 provinces and 3 territories of Canada, as well as the remaining 16 states of the United States the band have yet to play. A few major markets that have been journeyed to in the past will be also be included.

The North American tour will start in the state of Tennessee.

Best Regards,
The White Stripes’ Management

Few artists have truly invented a musical genre, but Joni Mitchell is the original singer-songwriter and one of the most influential artists of the rock era. While successive generations of copycats have hoped to win favourable comparison, none have matched the grace and guile Mitchell has bestowed on a distinguished body of work, both in her recordings, as a performer and multi-media artist in photography, art and beyond.

These two programmes are illustrated with famous and less widely-known Mitchell recordings and with the exclusive first play of material from her new album ‘Shine,’ expected to be released in early summer.

Fridays from 23 March 4:03 PM
