Developing: Meg White in trouble?

Stereogum reports that the White Stripes have cancelled a scheduled gig at the Austic City Limits Fesitval this weekend, citing a Meg White nervous breakdown. Details are sketchy.

Pitchfork, picking up on an Austin 360 report that the cancellation was due to "medical reasons," snarks that "we like to call this medical ailment, for which there is no known cure, Playing Against the Arcade Fire Syndrome." (Arcade Fire is also playing the festival.) They're going to feel preeeeeetty bad about themselves if this turns out to be something serious...

UPDATE - The entire tour has been cancelled due to medical reasons. Meg is described as suffering from "acute anxiety."
