Icky Tour

It's been awhile since we've heard anything from The White Stripes - their last studio album came out in June of '05. While Jack was off discovering what it was like to play in a full band with The Raconteurs (let's hope it wasn't just a one-off), it left us wondering if he was ever going to go back and make music with his "sister" Meg. Well in the last few weeks stories there have been a flurry of stories about the duo - first they were dropped by their label V2, announced they were playing Bonnaroo, signed to Warners with their new album Icky Thump now slated to be released at some point in June - and now today they've announced a summer tour in support of it. Lot to digest, but here are the initial dates....
