JACK WHITE has announced his intentions for an upcoming run of shows to be ‘phone free.’

Widely renowned for his disdain towards technology and claims that he doesn’t own a cell phone, the Nashville-based musician behind Third Man Records has now declared that his shows should be free of electronic devices.

Revealed on Facebook via Houston Texas’ Revention Music Center where White will play shows on the 30th April and 1st May, it appears that this is not merely a guideline as has been expressed by other artists and will be actively enforced using ‘Yondr Pouches’:

“PLEASE NOTE: this is a PHONE-FREE show. 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. 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.”
