New run starts Sept. 8 in Milwaukee.
The White Stripes have set out plans for a second leg of their fall North American tour, which will begin Aug. 6 in George, Wash. The new run of dates gets underway Sept. 8 in Milwaukee and will close with an Oct. 2 hometown show at Detroit's Masonic Temple Theatre.
Fellow Motor City colleagues the Greenhornes will open most dates, but a Sept. 24-25 stand at Keyspan Park near New York's Coney Island will boast support from the Shins and Brendan Benson. The Shins will also open a Sept. 27 gig in Columbia, Md., around which time they are expected to begin work on their third Sub Pop studio album.
As Jack White told Billboard recently, venue sizes are being intentionally kept low. "There's nothing more plastic than a real famous band going on a million-dollar tour playing some big concrete arena and playing the same show they played the night before, and [the same show they will do] in another town the next night," he said. "It's not an event anymore."
The group's new Third Man/V2 album, "Get Behind Me Satan," debuted last week at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 189,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
