Aside from earning some much deserved accolades, The White Stripes have spent the last several months reliving their memorable 2007 cross-Canadian tour through a recently released live film called Under Great White Northern Lights. However, thus far, this “reliving” has been strictly limited to the band, a few close friends, and whoever was lucky enough to score tickets to the Toronto International Film Festival.
Well, awesomely enough, that will all (kind of) change on March 16th when Jack and Meg release the live film as a limited edition boxset. The package includes but is probably not limited to the following: a DVD of the feature-length film, a DVD of their 10th anniversary concert in Nova Scotia, the “first-ever official live album from The White Stripes (a compilation of 16 tracks from the 07 Canadian tour) on 180 gram vinyl and CD, a 7 single (featuring “Icky Thump” and “The Wheels on the Bus”), a hardcover Autumn de Wilde-shot photo book of the tour with a foreword by filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, and a silk screen print designed by Rob Jones.
And all it will cost you is $179 (prior to 2010 at which point the price raises to $229). Of course, if this is a bit to much for ol’ Jack, you can just go the individual route — the DVD, live album, and book will all be sold separately. Pre-sales begin tomorrow.
