A North American tour is in the works for Jack White, and it includes shows in both Montreal and Toronto.

The tour will support his debut solo album "Blunderbuss," which came out in April of this year, and he will be joined by two bands: the Buzzards as well as the Peacocks.

After performing at a number of shows in Europe to wrap up the summer, White will play Montreal's L’Olympia on October 2nd and tickets will go on sale at 11am on Friday, August 17th. He'll also play back-to-back shows at the Sony Centre For The Performing Arts in Toronto on October 3rd and 4th. Tickets for those performances will run between $45 and $75, and will go on sale Friday at Ticketmaster, the Sony Centre Box Office, or by phone at 1-855-985-5000 or 1-855-872-SONY.

Before wrapping things up he will also play at a number of festivals in Columbia, Austin and New Orleans.

White is best known for his musical stylings with the band The White Stripes, where he was the lead vocalist, guitarist, and pianist, and who disbanded in February 2011. He was also a member of the bands The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather.

White's music has been featured on a number of movie soundtracks including "Cold Mountain," "Quantum of Solace," "Shine a Light," and "It Might Get Loud." In addition to his work in music he's also appeared on TV's "American Pickers" along with a number of episodes of "The Colbert Report."
