According to an anonymous reader, the White Stripes are playing a free surprise show, right now (3:30 p.m.) at Yonge & Grosvenor. No need to get out yer wallets for tonight’s show at the Amphitheatre after all…
UPDATE (4:50 p.m.): Okay, apparently show’s done (
we think? can anyone confirm? Yep, all done.) If you’ve got photos, we wanna see them! Upload them to our Flickr pool, or e-mail them to [email protected]!
UPDATE (July 6, 12:30 p.m.): The Globe has a cool write-up of the concert. They played in the auditorium of the YMCA to a crowd of 25 super-dedicated fans—most of whom were waiting at Union Station for word of a secret show—and some “80 participants in the Grosvenor Street YMCA’s summer day camp, ranging from ages 6 to 12.” Awww! Golf clap for the Globe! And thanks so much to our lovely anonymous reader who tipped us off in the first place—because of them, we were the only media organization in the city who had anything up about the concert while it was actually happening.
