Overview

In the summer of 2007, shortly after the release of their sixth album Icky Thump, The White Stripes headed north of their hometown of Detroit to embark on an ambitious journey across Canada. The plan was to play a show in every province and territory in Canada, from B.C. to Newfoundland to Nunavut. "Having never done a tour of Canada, Meg and I thought it was high time to go whole hog...from the ocean to the permafrost" says Jack White. "We wanted to play out-of-the-way towns that don't usually get shows...the shows are better, it's better for the people, it's a better experience, it's way more unique, something interesting is going to happen...hopefully."

White called upon filmmaker Emmett Malloy to come and document this trek for the band. Malloy had directed videos for the band in the past, and seemed eager to hit the road with them. Equipped with a couple of 16mm cameras, and a few other documenting devices, the band and crew all headed north. The end result was Under Great White Northern Lights.

The CD contains 16 live songs from various shows in Canada. It is the first White Stripes live CD ever released. The film is available on DVD and Blu-Ray. From the Label
