Following through on a pledge to not tour North America until later this summer, the White Stripes have revealed an initial round of dates. The tour will begin Aug. 6 in George, Wash., and has shows on tap through an Aug. 29-31 stand at Chicago’s Auditorium Theater.
There are also multiple-night engagements lined up at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre and the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis, as well as an Aug. 22 show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver. More shows will be added.
As previously reported, the Stripes are in the midst of a 12-date tour of Central and South America ahead of the June 7 release of their new Third Man/V2 album, “Get Behind Me Satan.”
Before the North American run, the Stripes will spend three weeks in June and July playing in such far-flung European locales as Ljubljana, Slovenia, and Riga, Latvia.
