I don’t even look for arena shows anymore. I seek gems at small venues that pop up periodically like questlove and Saul Williams at echoplex last week. :rockon:

Roger Waters is a must in my book if you've never seen him before, especially now with the bar on spectacle raised so high for his gigs.

Booked a few more shows this week...
The Breeders
David Byrne
Charlotte Day Wilson

Upon the recommendation of tvrec, I think I'll get tickets for Lucy Dacus in April. How can I not when the tickets are only $13.50?
I will probably get tix for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club in Feb. The new album is quite good, I think.

Wow, I wonder how this will work?? I haven't been to a show where phones and other devices have to placed in a Yondr(whatis it??) pouch.
Jack White:
Please note PLEASE NOTE: this is a PHONE-FREE show. No photos, video or audio recording devices allowed. 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. Upon arrival at the venue, all phones and other photo or video-capturing gizmos will be secured in a Yondr pouch that will be unlocked at the end of the show. You keep your pouch-secured phone on you during the show and, if needed, can unlock your phone at any time in a designated Yondr Phone Zone located in the lobby or concourse. For those looking to do some social media postings, let us help you with that. Our official tour photographer will be posting photos and videos after the show at jackwhiteiii.com and the new Jack White Live Instagram account @officialjackwhitelive. Repost our photos & videos as much as you want and enjoy a phone-free, 100% human experience.

I kinda hope it works. It wouldn't surprise me if someone sued them for theft or 'property kidnap' or 'restriction of freedom of communication' or any other shitty, all-American reason.

It was used at the recent Misfits show at the LA Forum. If you need to use your phone, you have to go to areas in the lobby. More bands are getting sold on the idea not just because it's annoying for the band and many in the audience for obvious reasons, but because cell/camera tech is so good these days, Youtube vids takeaway potential revenue from possible official live video releases, not to mention capturing embarrasing moments or outright shitty performances. Even places like courts and a few movie theater chains are utilizing Yondr. It's not 100% effective, some people manage to get their phones out of the pouch (which is pretty expensive) or simply hide their cell phones like the good ol' days when bootleggers smuggled in recorders in their crotch.

:tiphat: Thanks for that info!


I found this youtube review of YONDR from a couple of days ago...



I like the idea of Yondr but am thinking entry and exit will be really slowed down. I'll find out in June when I go to the Jack White show at the Budweiser Stage. I managed to snag a couple of lawn tickets on the pre-sale this morning. The price was pretty good- 2 tickets including service fees was $92. Also, each online ticket inlcudes a CD copy of Boarding House Reach.

Saw OMD last night....F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!! I'm tempted to go to the second show tonight.
The set was a mix of old and new material. The new stuff is pretty good live, better than on the album, imo.

If any of you here are fans, I recommend you catch them on this tour.

Here's a vid from last night(not mine).




Okay, one more...

I said Vive Latino was going to be my last festival, but then Corona Capital's line up came out and even though I don't know the new bands, I do want to see many of the headliners (even Robbie Williams)

The Jack White show here on Saturday(June 9th) was excellent!! If you are planning to see this tour, you will not be disappointed. Jack was in fine form with an incredible band! With regards to being a phone-free show, no problems with the pouches, the lines move quickly going in and exiting. It was kinda nice to see people lighting their lighters in appreciation.

A review of Jack White’s cell phone-less show in Toronto

If you know anything about Jack White, you’re probably aware he has a thing for the Number Three.

I only really bring this up because June 9th, 2018 marked the third time Jack White has played Toronto’s Budweiser Stage – the previous occasions were in 2005 and 2007 when it went by the name Molson Amphitheatre with some little band you may have heard of called The White Stripes.

For reasons only he could explain, the rocker with a taste for the eccentric decided to make the last stop on the Boarding House Reach tour before jetting off to Europe extra special (his third solo album, as luck would have it). With a newish four-person backing group more than ably picking up on his cues, they absolutely plowed through twenty years of material that sounded so fresh, alive and urgent, it makes you wonder where all this “rock is dead” nonsense is coming from.

With twin keyboard setups maned by touring members Neal Evans and Quincy McCrary, not to mention rich bass courtesy of childhood friend Dominic Davis, White’s songs are more fleshed out than arguably any point in his career. The guitar is still very much front and centre in Jack White’s world, surrounding himself with no less than five instruments of amplification he would seemingly choose at random and force every single person in the venue to follow his lead. A vintage-looking piano in roughly the middle of White’s two-tiered platform was a symbolic reminder that no matter how technologically advanced his video projections may have become, music foundations will always be what’s most important to him.

There was a lot of prattling beforehand about White’s self-imposed no-phones-allowed policy. While part of me missed live-tweeting so as to manufacture FOMO for anyone not in attendance, getting in touch with people you didn’t necessarily come with was probably the biggest inconvenience. By the end of the night however, I personally found myself having more conversations with strangers at a concert than I can remember in eons. And rather than the cancerous glow emanating via thousands of phones during the more ballad-y “Love Interruption”, there were good old-fashioned lighters in the air. Conveniently, a lot of the lighters being used were blue-coloured ones emblazoned with White’s “III” logo bought beforehand from the merchandise table.

Besides profiteering off of his loyal faithful, White did appear to succeed in having Torontonians be in the moment, starting with openers Radkey. With no screens to look at, all eyes were on the three siblings whose ripped denim look reminded me of the Ramones with more than a little “Cult of Personality” by Living Colour swagger. Speaking of personality, Jack White has always been a commanding presence on stage, from previous bands The White Stripes with faux-sister Meg White to both The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather, even if he tried relegating himself to the background in the latter as their percussionist. His gift of surprising audiences over and over (and over) still shines brightly as a solo artist. I certainly wasn’t expecting him to step behind a SECOND drum kit to jam out “My Doorbell” in tandem with Carla Azur while also singing à la Sébastien Grainger from T.O. two-piece Death from Above.

Jack has an obvious affinity for the Queen City of Toronto; he was spotted at a club just north of our iconic Queen Street West after thanking us collectively as a country for making Boarding House Reach a #1 album. Whether they were subtly conscious connections or simply odd coincidences, they all made for maybe the best show I’ve personally seen featuring Jack White. Third time was definitely the charm for him!

Got freebies for tomorrow night to see Joan Jett with Styx and Tesla. Tesla goes on first, followed by Joan then Styx. I'm excited about JJ because I've never seen her. As for the other bands, don't really care. I'm sure it'll be a tame crowd with average age of 50 or older. :lol:

Oh shit; this setlist is phenomenal. BHR is on serious rotation in the last couple of months....I'd name a fave, but I hear something new almost every listen and I truly LOVE the album. Humoresque is drop dead gorgeous.....btw, this might sound familiar to those who have the album.


There is a great story on the White side about how this landed on the album. Too, Ice Station Zebra was the fictitious corp set up by Saul in BB as Walt began to launder money.
