Jack White bans phones at gigs

Jack White bans phones at gigs
Like a knight from an age long passed, Jack White is going into battle with phones. They’re going to be banned at his forthcoming US gigs, and the lengths he’s going to are extraordinary. Here’s the statement:
“No photos, video or audio recording devices allowed… We think you’ll enjoy looking up from your gadgets for a little while and experience music and our shared love of it IN PERSON,” the statement adds…Upon arrival at the venue, all phones and other photo or video-capturing gizmos will be secured in a Yondr pouch that will be unlocked at the end of the show. You keep your pouch-secured phone on you during the show and, if needed, can unlock your phone at any time in a designated Yondr Phone Zone located in the lobby or concourse.”
“For those looking to do some social media postings, let us help you with that. Our official tour photographer will be posting photos and videos after the show at jackwhiteiii.com and the new Jack White Live Instagram account @officialjackwhitelive. Repost our photos & videos as much as you want and enjoy a phone-free, 100% human experience.”
Tilting at windmills. Pissing in the wind.
