The band will be supporting its new album, Icky Thump, which drops June 18 in Europe and June 19 everywhere else.

“Having never done a full tour of Canada, Meg and I thought it was high time to go whole hog.” Jack White said on the band’s web site.

“We want to take this tour to the far reaches of the Canadian landscape. From the ocean to the permafrost. The best way for us to do that is ensure that we perform in every province and territory in the country, from the Yukon to Prince Edward Island.

“Another special moment of this tour is the show which will occur in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia on July 14th, The White Stripes’ Tenth Anniversary.”

The Canadian dates run June 24 through July 16 and are mostly in arena-size venues.

The band returns to the U.S. July 22 to play 16 states they have yet to visit during their career, as well as a limited number of performances in other markets, including New York City and Boston.

The first leg of the tour covers the eastern seaboard and run into the South.

Before the North American dates start, the band will play some European festival shows and stops at the l in Manchester, Tenn., on June 17.
