In the summer of 2007, shortly after the release of their 6th album, "Icky Thump," The White Stripes headed north of their hometown of Detroit to embark on an ambitious journey across Canada. The plan was to play a show in every province and territory in Canada, from B.C. to Newfoundland to Nunavut.
"Having never done a tour of Canada, Meg and I thought it was high time to go whole hog... from the ocean to the permafrost," said Jack White. "We wanted to play out of the way towns that don't usually get shows... the shows are better, it's better for the people, it's a better experience, it's way more unique, something interesting is going to happen... hopefully."
