Jack White has announced that he is to stop performing “for a long period of time”.

Following his appearance at the second Coachella Festival festival this coming weekend [April 17 – 19], White will embark on a short acoustic tour of the five American states he has yet to play, reports Rolling Stone.

The gigs will not be announced until 8am on the day of performance and will be the first full acoustic shows White has done.


Tickets will only cost $3 and will be sold on the door at the venue from 12 midday on a first come, first served basis.

White will then cease live performance, with a statement on his Third Man website announcing: “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.”

Meanwhile, White recently announced his next project: American Epic, a television and music project in conjunction with T Bone Burnett and Robert Redford.
