Dave Chappelle's Chicago Residency Shows Have A "No Phone Zone"
Last night, Dave Chappelle commenced a six-night stay at Chicago’s famed Thalia Hall, performing two sets per night through December 6th. Ticket-holders for the shows are ensured everything one would hope to take away from the experience: Chappelle talks, the crowd laughs, three hours of this exchange go by and the folks go home happy to their loved ones with real memories of a legend’s lament.
One thing you won’t see at one of Chappelle’s sets is the supreme vibe-killer: cell phones. For his sold out 12-show run, Chappelle has partnered with defenders of the live realm, Yondr, who secure each venue from technological turmoil by handing out auto-sealing bags at the beginning of every performance, where attendees are expected to put their phone down and out for the count so long as they remain in the “no phone zone.”
All of this, of course, is to ensure that the shows go off without a hitch or disruptive flash, so that you, the person who paid for the ticket, gets precisely what you signed up for.
