Jack White has joined the growing list of acts who are requesting "cell phone-free" shows. The venues are to issue a statement alerting fans to the development.
"No photos, videos or audio recording devices allowed," says the statement. "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."
STP used a similar approach and we've seen A Perfect Circle and Misfits attempt to ban cell phone usage at shows as well. The practice has also gone to the comedy world, where comedians have utilized the no cell phone policy to keep their material fresh for audiences coming to see them.
