EDMONTON, AB (CelebrityAccess) – Jack White has responded to news that two women were prevented from kissing during his show at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta on November 2.
According to a CBC report, White was performing his hit song “Seven Nation Army” when a member of the venue’s staff confronted a woman named Allyson MacIvor who was attending the concert with her girlfriend.
“I embraced my girlfriend, and some staff member came in between us, and she said, ‘This is not allowed here,’” MacIvor told the publication.
“It was very violating and invasive. It’s not something I’d ever imagine experiencing, honestly.”

This photo is a lesbian couple sharing a kiss at a Beatles concert in 1964 while the rest of the crowd screamed for the band. This is one of my favorite photos because of how beautiful the situation is; they are hiding in plain sight. Its 2018 now and two people expressing affection shouldn’t have to hide. The news that two women were stopped from kissing during my show in Edmonton really disappointed me. At the next show in Calgary I dedicated the song “love interruption” to the two women and encouraged everyone in the crowd to kiss their loved ones. Let’s promote love and acceptance wherever and whenever we can. -Jack White III
White went on to say that the news that two women were prevented from kissing at one of his concerts “really disappointed” him, and that during the next show in Calgary he dedicated his song “Love Interruption” to those women and encouraged everyone in the crowd to kiss their loved ones.
