You won't be able to talk on your phone, take pictures with it or text at the sold-out concert Thursday at Little Caesar Arena.
Fans attending White’s tour will have their phones and smart watches secured inside locked pouches that will not allow them to be accessed during the show, writes Adam Graham of The Detroit News:
White’s team is calling it a “phone-free, 100-percent human experience.” “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,” a note from Third Man Records reads. Those wanting to post pictures from the show to their Instagram account can download shots from White’s website after the show.
Comedians Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock have done the same at shows.
