The White Stripes wrapped up their quirky Canadian tour yesterday (July 16) with a single note in St. John's.

Following shows on boats, buses, bridges and classrooms, Jack and Meg White took to the stage on George Street in St. John’s and played a single note - reportedly a C-sharp - before announcing they have “now officially played in every province and territory in Canada” and leaving the stage.

Hundreds of fans showed up for the last minute event, but were pre-warned that the show would be just one-note long.

Later that evening, the band played a full-length set at Mile One Stadium in the city, the final show on their Canadian tour proper.
