White Stripes on Strike, citing “Icky Thump”
According to austin360 the White Stripes have pulled out from their ACL spot and Stubb’s show due to “Medical Reasons”. It is as yet unreported who will be taking their place.
I suspect Win Butler and Co. of foul play. Who put up the White Stripes against Arcade Fire anyhow? On the other hand, if AF’s not your forte you can at least beat the crowd out to 6th street.
(I kid, Win. Call me.)
Update (2007.09.12 15:14 CDT): MTV reports that they pulled out due to Meg White’s “acute anxiety”. They’re canceling their entire U.S. tour. Muse, who was already scheduled to play ACL, has been moved into their spot and the schedule for that day has been shuffled around.
