A new trend emerging in the concert world is having phone free shows. How will they accomplish this? When entering the concert venue you will be asked to put your phone into a Yondr Pouch which protects but locks your phone. You will keep the pouch with you during the concert but you won’t be able to access your phone it until you take it to a staff member to unlock the pouch.
Jack White is following in the lead of Alicia Keys and Dave Chappelle who have used similar tactics to bring in a human experience to their shows.
Artists are asking fans to share the photos that are posted to official Instagram accounts rather than taking them using their phones. Some are saying this doesn’t allow fans to share their personal experiences.
What do you think about this new trend?
