Update: Jack White won't be playing Iowa

Update: Jack White's publicist has states that the tour will hit five states Jack White has never perform in in any configuration of bands. Because White performed at Hairy Mary's with The White Stripes in 2000, Iowa is out of the running.

On Tuesday Jack White announced on his website that he will be "taking a break from performing for a long time," but to cap off a run of recent shows that included a headlining slot at the Coachella Music Festival, White will perform a short acoustic tour of the only five states left in the US he has yet to play.

The wording there was ambiguous as to whether "yet to play" included White's time as a member of his many other projects, including The White Stripes, which played in Des Moines in 2000. White's press agent clarified that it's the five states White hasn't played as a solo artist.

White has never played Iowa as a solo artist, so it looks like Iowa is one of the five states that will be a part of the acoustic solo tour.

There's no word on what Iowa city or venue the show might be held at. The performance will be announced at 8 a.m. local time and tickets will be $3 each with a limit of one per person. The tickets will go on sale at noon the day of show, will be first come, first serve and are cash only.

White's website and the Twitter account of his Third Man Records label are where the shows will be announced. If you're a fan, you'll want to keep an eye on both those locations. The Third Man Records Rolling Record Store visited Des Moines last weekend for a stop at ZZZ Records.
