Black Rebel Motorcycle Club will replace White Stripes at the CARLING WEEKEND: READING AND LEEDS FESTIVALS, NME.COM can exclusively reveal.

Yesterday we revealed that the Detroit duo would not be able to make their main stage appearance because Jack White’s finger has not recovered in time from his recent car crash.

Today, organisers have told NME.COM that Black Rebel Motorcycle Club will take the vacant slot . They will play the Main Stage before headliners [url=]Blur on August 23 in Reading and August 24 in Leeds.
