As previously reported, White's injury forced the postponement of 18 North American shows leading up to an Aug. 10 date originally scheduled for the group's Detroit hometown. The band will return to the stage Sept. 13 in Berkeley, Calif., and play previously scheduled dates in the U.S. followed by an October tour of Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
The July and August North American dates, meanwhile, have been rescheduled for November. Gigs in Milwaukee; New York; Indianapolis; Cleveland; Montreal; Cincinnati; Pittsburgh; Washington, D.C.; Mississauga, Ontario; Providence, R.I.; Lowell, Mass.; Camden, N.J., and Columbus, Ohio have been set for that month.
Tickets for the original shows will be honored in most cases. The Nov. 21 show in Lowell, Mass., which replaces a planned Boston concert at the Fleet Boston Pavilion, will honor the Boston tickets. The exceptions are the Nov. 30 Cleveland concert and the Nov. 24 Camden, N.J., concert, which replaces a scheduled show in Philadelphia. The band was unable to reschedule planned shows in Nashville and Norfolk, Va.
The Stripes are touring in support of their latest Third Man/V2 album, "Elephant," which is No. 38 in its 17th week on The Billboard 200 and has sold 822,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. The single "Seven Nation Army" topped Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks airplay chart and is No. 4 on the tally this week.
