Under Great White Northern Lights


This week (which also marks the 10th anniversary of The White Stripes' first NZ tour), the latest White Stripes DVD Under Great White Northern Lights will be released as a box set, with a live album and accompanying book to be released over the next couple of months.

Directed by Emmett Malloy, who has also directed music videos for the White Stripes and the Raconteurs, the film follows the band on their 2007 Icky Thump tour throughout Canada. The band made sure to visit each corner of Canada, and played a few surprise gigs in unusual venues, including a bowling alley and on a public bus.


With Canada's red and white colour scheme, it seems the whole country was art directed especially for The White Stripes.
