Tight Stripes: Jack and Meg play one-second gig
- The White Stripes »
Blink and you’ll miss ‘em - The White Stripes have played a one-second gig this week as part of their unorthodox Canadian tour.
Honestly, if it was anyone else we’d be starting to resent the free publicity.
Hundreds of fans flocked to a last-minute show in St John's on July 16 to hear Jack and Meg play a single note – allegedly a C-sharp - before announcing that they have "now officially played in every province and territory in Canada".
The band went on to play a full set across town later that evening at the Mile One Stadium.
Other highlights of the band’s quirky tour include gigs on boats, bridges, classrooms and suchlike.
Video’s below, send us your one word reviews of the performance and we’ll see if we can’t find us a winner.
