Jack White, the king of analog technology (who likely still owns and uses a fax machine), has banned the use of phones during his upcoming tour. This begs the question does Jack White even own a cell phone?

“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 statement from White reads, "enjoy a phone-free, 100 percent human experience."

According to the statement, all phones will be placed in a "Yondr" locked pouch and will remain on your person for the duration of the show. If you need to unlock your phone you can do so in a designated "Yondr Phone Zone."

Phone. Zone.

White's official tour photographer will be uploading images and video after the show to jackwhiteiii.com and White's new Instagram account, @officialjackwhitelive. Guests are encouraged to repost those items as much as they want.

White will tour in support of his upcoming solo record Boarding House Reach, due out March 23 (Third Man/Columbia). White plays Little Caesars Arena April 19.
