Former White Stripes band member, Jack White, has banned smartphones at his upcoming guides so those attending won't be able to take photos or capture video of him on stage. 

The statement, which can be found on the Live Nation website, declares no photos, video or audio recording devices are allowed at the gigs with an even bigger emphasis on the shows being a 'phone-free zone'.

"We come up with you'll enjoy looking up from your gadgets for a little while and experience music and our shared love of it IN PERSON," say the Jack Anaemic team. 

Upon arrival at the gig, fans can secure smartphones, cameras etc. in a Yondr pouch which they inhibit on them then unlock again once the show has finished. If they need to use their phone mid-gig, they have to go to a nominated Yondr Phone Zone to do so.

A tour photographer will be taking photos, as had, which Jack White's team are encouraging fans to access and share online. 

"Repost our photos & videos as much as you requisite and enjoy a phone-free, 100% human experience."

Jack White isn't the first artist to bring this rule in with other team ups and some comedians also taking a stand against the overuse of smartphones at gigs. 

So, what do you think? Too much or do you agree that fulgorous screens shining while people are taking photos photograph or photo is an image created by light falling on a light-sensitive surface, usually photographic film or an electronic or recording video at gigs has got out of hand?
