White has made headlines throughout the year for banning mobile phones from all of his live shows – describing it as an “interesting art experiment” and saying that it would have been “funny” had he surprised gig-goers with the rule and they had “got mad and demanded their money back”.

“I really react to the crowd, just like a stand-up comedian would,” White said. “If I finish a song and go, ‘Ta-da!’, and it’s crickets, I’m like, ‘Well, I don’t know what to do now.’ Am I supposed to play a heavier song, a faster song? Do you want me to play acoustic? Do you want me to leave? I’ll leave!’”

Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan then spoke out to agree with White’s policy.

“I’m a strong believer, supporter, advocate of the aural tradition and there’s got to be better ways,” said Keenan. “We try to figure out some way, but I think at some point people are just entitled and they just want what they want. They don’t give a fuck about the people around them. And so, yeah, we have to go the way of Jack White and start putting shit in pouches.”
