Sitting in a room of empty chairs and answering questions emitting from a record player, Waits’ revealed little.

Going by the so-called press conference, it’s not clear if the U.S. dates will be performed solo or with a band. However, “PEHDTSCKJMBA,” an acronym derived from the first letter of each city, was termed the “guiding word” for the tour. It stands for “People Envy Happiness, Dogs Though, Sense Courage Knowing Jubilation Means Better Assets,” in case you were wondering.

The 13 date tour commences June 17 in Phoenix and stops in theaters in the South and Midwest.

Are more shows in the works? Who knows; we’re talking about Tom Waits.
