UNDATED(WKRC) - Jack White wants to make sure his fans enjoy his show.

That's why the 42-year-old musician is requiring all concert-goers to place their cameras and cellphones in secure pouches until the show is over, according to a report by SPIN.

The pouches stay with concertgoers and remain sealed while they are in the "phone-free zone."

Audience members can unlock the pouch to make an emergency call as long as they step outside the designated area.

White said the request isn't about preventing piracy.

Instead, he wants his fans to enjoy the concert in the moment without being distracted.

White is coming to Cincinnati from June 1-3 for the Bunbury Music Festival.
