In promotion of "Icky Thump", The White Stripes set up a venue in L.A. and give away the tickets for free.
Constantly giving one surprise after another with the release of "Icky Thump", The White Stripes is being generous this time. The duo will give away free tickets for their show at "Icky Thump Records".
The June 20 show will be set on a specially built store in Los Angeles with part of the tickets given away through L.A.'s radio station KROQ from June 15-17. Tickets for the 7 p.m. PDT show will be made available for the first 200 people who buy the album at the store after midnight on Monday (June 18).
This show is intended to promote their latest effort "Icky Thump" that will hit the U.S. stores on Tuesday (June 19) via Warner Bros. Rec.
The band will also play a one-off gig in New York City on June 19. The show is intended for fans only who are asked to keep the details away from press.
Few days ago the band also surprised the media with a secret performance in London for Chelsea war veterans. Jack and Meg White hummed their tunes to clueless 20 pensioners who were actually enjoying their music.
