Today Jack White announced via press release that after years of seemingly seamless touring for one project or another (White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather, Jack White solo) he will cease the road warrior lifestyle and “taking a break from performing live for a long period of time”
However, the announcement also revealed that White will be doing one last mini-acoustic tour “of the only five states left in the U.S he has yet to play.”
Though The White Stripes and The Raconteurs have both ventured through the Garden State during their respective hay days, neither The Dead Weather nor Jack White’s solo circus has stopped in New Jersey…yet.
Could Jack White be headed to New Jersey or, dare I speculate, Asbury Park…possibly. We’ll just have to wait for the announcement, as performances and venues will be announced day of show, and those lucky enough to see it will only be charged $3.
Check out the full press release below:
“After many years of performing in a multitude of configurations, Jack White is announcing that he will be taking a break from performing live for a long period of time. To cap off an incredible run of shows promoting his latest album Lazaretto, and following what is shaping up to be a rollicking and fiery pair of headlining performances at this year’s Coachella Music and Arts Festival, Jack will embark on a short acoustic tour of the only five states left in the U.S. that he has yet to play. The states these shows are occurring in will be unannounced until the day of the performance. Joining Jack on his jaunt across these locations will be musicians making up an acoustic quartet, including Fats Kaplin, Lillie Mae Rische and Dominic Davis. The shows will be totally acoustic and amplified only with ribbon microphones to the audience as well. These shows will be the very first totally acoustic full concerts Jack White has ever done.
Each special acoustic performance will be announced day of show at 8am local time. Tickets for these engagements are priced at $3 per ticket and will be limited to one ticket per person. All tickets will be sold at the venue door starting at 12pm on the day of the show – first come, first served and cash only.
