Jack White Bans Cell Phones From Concerts

Earlier this month, Jack White announced tour dates behind his third solo album, Boarding House Reach which is set to drop on Friday, March 23 via Third Man and Columbia. This will be his first all-new album in nearly four years. Recently, White shared the first two singles, “Connected by Love” and “Respect Commander,” and accompanying videos.

On Wednesday (January 24), White decreed that no cell phones would be allowed inside of his show. Read the full statement below via NME.

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. 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.”
