Jack White

Last week, Jack White announced an upcoming tour in support of his new album Boarding House Reach, due March 23. Starting April 19, White’s tour will see him cover North America and Europe on a run that will last all the way through to August 23.

A new announcement has revealed an added stipulation for all fans looking to catch White live on the upcoming tour. In a statement, White has banned the use of all mobile phones at his concerts, saying, “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 goes on to reveal that all visitor phones will be secured in specially-designed pouches and fans will only be allowed to access them in designated zones. White has even thought of his more social media-savvy fans, encouraging them to repost and share photographs posted by the official tour photographer: “Repost our photos & videos as much as you want and enjoy a phone-free, 100% human experience.”
