AceShowbiz - After spending months on the road in support of his newest album "Lazaretto", Jack White feels the need to have some rest. The musician announced in a statement released on Tuesday, April 14, that he's "taking a break from performing live for a long period of time."
However, before he starts his lengthy break, White will play a string of acoustic concerts in the five U.S. states he has yet to visit during his ongoing tour. For the shows, which won't be announced until the day they're slated to take place, he's bringing along an acoustic quartet that includes Fats Kaplin, Lillie Mae Rische and Dominic Davis to back him.
"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 has ever done," he promised.
Priced at $3, tickets for the acoustic shows will be announced at 8:00 A.M. local time on the day of the show. They'll be sold at the venue door starting at 12:00 P.M. local time. One person is allowed to purchase only one ticket. "First come, first served and cash only," he said.
For now, White is preparing himself to headline the second weekend of Coachella. He's returning to the festival on Saturday, April 18.
