White Stripes to reunite for TV performance
The White Stripes are to perform live on US television later this week, it has been revealed.
On Friday (February 20th), the duo will appear on NBC's Late Night With Conan O'Brien.
The performance will mark the first time that the American rock outfit have played together onstage since cancelling a run of tour dates in September 2007 due to Meg White suffering from anxiety problems.
It is not yet known whether they will perform new material on the show but there are rumours that the appearance will kick-start another White Stripes album.
Meg and Jack White were last on stage together in June last year, although Meg did not play any music.
Recently, she donated one of her drum kits to be auctioned to raise money for Jim Shaw, who is described by NME.com as a "lynchpin" of the Detroit music scene and who is currently suffering from cancer.
