I Think I Smell a Deluxe Edition

In 2007, the White Stripes toured across every province and territory in Canada. Along the way playing one off shows in unusual places and venues that ranged From a performance on a bus in Winnipeg to playing the Arva Flour Mill (just outside of London) to playing an infamous one note concert in St. John’s. The trek garnered a lot of well earned attention for the duo and also managed to please a whole lot of Canadians. This humble blogger included.

Luckily, the whole tour was captured in the film Under the Great White Northern Lights. If you weren’t lucky enough to take it in at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year, you’ll be happy to know that the DVD will be available in March 2010. See an image gallery from the film here.

The DVD will come in a number of formats, most notably in a handsome deluxe, limited-edition box set. If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on one of these, it will include the film on DVD, a DVD of the White Stripes’ tenth anniversary celebration called Under Nova Scotian Lights, a live seven-inch, a 16-track live album on both vinyl and CD, a silk-screen print and a lovely 208-page photo book with a forward by Jim Jarmusch.

The deluxe box set will be available for pre-order here today (December 11th). As well, if it’s pre-ordered before January 1st, fans will also receive three MP3s and a holiday card from the band as a bonus incentive.

The DVD and live album will also be available on their own on March 16th, with the book coming out in April.

(Your point of trivia for the day… The set list for that one note show in St. John’s?)

I love you, White Stripes!
