Before he takes a break from touring, Jack White is going to perform a few surprise, acoustic shows at states in which he has never played. The cost of admission is only $3 per ticket, but White is being extremely secretive about this mini-tour.
According to a post on his official website, Jack White will take the shows to five states in which he has never performed. However, White has not revealed which states they are, and fans won’t know until 8 a.m. local time on the day of the performance if he’ll be playing anywhere near them, hence the “surprise” portion of the tour.
Once the location of the show is revealed, tickets will then go on sale at the designated venue beginning at 12 p.m. that same day. Each performance will be on a first-come, first-served basis, and fans can only purchase one ticket each with cash. Credit cards and other methods of payment will not be accepted.
Jack White just performed the first weekend of Coachella, and is scheduled to headline the big music festival’s second weekend. His next performance will be Saturday, April 18, at 9:15 p.m., according to the festival’s official website. Once that’s done, he will be hitting the road for the acoustic shows. Fans can find out if he’ll be playing one of his secret shows in their area by following the Third Man Records Twitter page.

Joining White for these shows are Fats Kaplin, Lillie Mae Rische, and Dominic Davis. Each performance will be acoustic and “amplified only with ribbon microphones to the audience.”
“These shows will be the very first totally acoustic full concerts Jack has ever done.”
Some fans have begun speculating if Jack White has performed in their state before.
So Jack White is playing five secret acoustic shows in states he’s never played before. Know if he’s played in WV? Hope it’s @123pleasant

Others wondered if it counts if White had performed in the state previously as a member of the White Stripes. His official website did not detail if that would be the case for these secret shows.
